LOS ANGELES, Calif., May 18th, 2005. At the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Orbital Media revealed that its highly anticipated action title, Scurge: Hive, first announced last year, will be launching on September 15th, 2005 for the Nintendo GameBoyÂ® Advance and Nintendo DSÂ® game console.
Scurge: Hive has been kept under a tight lid until now. The game features its main character Jenosa Arma a bounty hunter. 48 hours ago a distress signal was sent from a remote research lab studying a virulent organism identified as the "Scurge". Scientists have been studying its remarkable metamorphic and energy abilities. Jenosa Arma has been commissioned by a black-ops cell from the government to investigate and salvage any research technology from within the facility. She is armed with top-secret projectile gauntlets and a prototype battle suit.
"Scurge: Hive is an intense fast-paced action-packed game from start to finish," Steve Shatford, Orbital's President, said. "This game raises the bar, a 100% adrenaline rush. Huge bosses, unique combat system, an absolutely massive game. This game just pushed a whole new dimension."
Orbital teased its audience days before E3 2005 with a new Scurge: Hive screens and videos from the game viewed online. At its press conference on Thursday, May 19 th 2005 the game debuted a full run through of gameplay and an E3 2005 video trailer. Orbital's action title Scurge: Hive will be shown at Nintendo's GameBoyÂ® Advance booth area over the course of the show.
