Newly announced PC games: 7/1 to 7/7

thrillvilleWowza, E3 is this week! But wait, we can’t forget about new PC game announcements this past week though. There were some juicy ones, probably to avoid the pre-E3 news rush, so get your eyeballs ready.

First up, SEGA and Gas Powered Games (GPG) announced Space Siege this past week, which will act as a spiritual successor to GPG’s PC RPG series Dungeon Siege.

Space Siege will feature many features from its predecessor, including a deep storyline, intense combat, plenty of inventory juggling and a dynamic character development selection — cybernetic implants. The game will take place throughout space as players control Seth Walker. The game is expected for release early next year for PC.

Newcomer company Paleo Entertainment announced they’ve licensed the CryENGINE 2 for their upcoming debut game Merchants of Brooklyn. No other details were revealed other than the game will be a FPS and will, "deliver engaging, fast-paced, futuristic mafia action mixed with Neanderthal vs. Cro-Magnon clones". Whatever the last part of that meant, it sounds neat.

Two months ago, we reported that director Steven Spielberg will be entering video game development and his debut game will be for the Wii. More details finally were released and his first game will be an action/puzzle/simulator game, currently code-named PQRS. The game will utilize a physics system that’ll mirror "the building-blocks game Jenga with the charm of a Saturday-morning cartoon".

His second game, code-named LMNO, will be for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Players will control an ex-secret agent on the run with a CPU-controlled woman. Apparently your actions will shape the woman’s special abilities and her ability to assist you. Interesting…

In expansion pack news, LucasArts announced Thrillville: Off the Rails this past week, the first expansion pack to their 2006 theme park simulation game Thrillville. The expansion will feature over 20 new rides, over 100 missions, 34 multiplayer games and an improved social guest interaction system. Off the Rails will be released this October for PC (which will utilize the Games for Windows – LIVE service), along for Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2, PSP and Nintendo DS.
