Blackwater Announced

Kinect-exclusive shooter unveiled
505 Games announced today Blackwater, a new 'First Person eXperience' (FPX) produced by Pantierra and developed by Zombie Studios. Coming exclusively to Kinect for Xbox 360, Blackwater is titled for the former name of the private security company founded in 1997 by Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL, to provide training support to military and law enforcement agencies. You will lead a team of Blackwater Operators protecting a fictional North African town, battling dangerous warlords and fighting back two opposing militia forces. Using the motion-sensing Kinect controller players can do everything from moving their character to aiming and firing a weapon as you work your way through pressure-filled missions. The game is also playable with a standard controller. Blackwater is scheduled to release in fall 2011.
