Torrence, Calif. - May 22, 2013 - UFO Interactive Games, in partnership with Tragnarion Studios today announced the upcoming worldwide release of Scourge: Outbreak as an arcade game on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network from Microsoft on July 3, 2013.
A raw and gritty, futuristic squad-based third-person shooter (TPS) built with Unreal Engine 3, Scourge: Outbreak pits the veteran mercenaries of Echo Squad, against their sworn enemies, the Nogari Corporation, in a desperate mission to rescue a double agent hidden behind enemy lines and to recover a mysterious meteorite fragment from Nogari's possession. Convinced that Nogari's 'Ambrosia Fuel Technology' is connected with deadly plagues that threaten to ravage the world, this may be Echo Squad's last and only shot at bringing the Nogari threat to its knees once and for all.
Scourge: Outbreak marks the Xbox LIVE debut of a massively overhauled and vastly improved version of The Scourge Project: Episodes 1 & 2, originally released for Windows® PC in April 2010. With a host of new features and enhancements based on community feedback, including new and re-vamped gameplay, a stronger and more prominent story narrative, smarter AI, more gratifying gunplay, powerful new XP Perks, a much more detailed and vibrant world, and a long list of other exciting changes, the differences between TSP and Scourge: Outbreak are phenomenal!
