SAN JOSE, Calif., (June 5, 2012) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., is proud to announce that the gravity-defying third-person shooter, INVERSION, is now available in stores across North America for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for the suggested retail price of $59.99. Developed by Saber Interactive, INVERSION puts players in the middle of an invasion by an unknown enemy utilizing advanced gravity-altering technology. Players must fight back against this mysterious new threat, take hold of their technology and command gravity to save the world. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. The game will be available in Europe in July, 2012.
“INVERSION combines strong third-person shooting and cover mechanics with powerful gravitational effects that make the battlefield a dynamically-shifting environment,” says Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “Movable cover can be manipulated and destroyed, and vector shifts can move the entire map sidewise or upside-down, making every encounter unique and engaging. INVERSION throws the world of shooters on its head.”
In INVERSION, players take on the role of Davis Russel, a young police officer, father and husband who finds himself thrust into a vicious war when society is overrun by an unknown enemy utilizing advanced weaponry that manipulates gravity to create bursts of low-gravity to levitate objects, or high-gravity to push objects and enemies to the ground. With his daughter missing, Davis must work together with his partner Leo Delgado to take command of this advanced gravitational weaponry to save the world. In addition to the complete single-player campaign, INVERSION features a comprehensive set of multiplayer modes, including gravity-defying maps and modes for up to 12 players online, as well as a full 2-player cooperative mode.
