In Project: Snowblind gamers will be exposed to a multitude of gadgetry and weaponry befitting a 21st century super soldier. Nathan's arsenal of tools will include items such as riot walls (deployable energy shields), spiderbots, ice picks (used specifically for hacking), cloaking shields, etc. His weapons chest includes a host of new and futuristic weapons such as the Flechette gun and Rail Laser to name a few as well as tried and true favorites of the FPS genre such as a Shot Gun and Rocket Launcher.
"In Project: Snowblind, our goal was to provide the player with a myriad of options in terms of weapons, gadgets and augmented abilities. It is up to you to combine them to your imagination's content," says John Chowanec Producer for Project: Snowblind. "Given the battlefield chaos in Project: Snowblind, we're arming you with a sandbox within which you can play out some of your most destructive ideas. Happy shooting!"
