Volition's Games In Progress
9:36 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Several new nuggets of information about both of Volition's upcoming games have been released recently. Those that have been following news on the 3D RPG Summoner should head to VoodooExtreme and have a look at the four new screen shots which are now available. They're looking very impressive, as Summoner progresses towards a release later this year. The official Summoner web page has a new feature called "Bug Fix of the Day" which highlights a particular bug the programming team must get around to fixing. The first shows a distinct problem with being invisible; it's hard to get people to talk to you... Head over to the site for more information on Summoner.
Volition's other title in development, Red Faction, is a first-person shooter with the amazing Geo-Mod engine that will allow players to destroy the surrounding environment as well as your enemies. Is that wall giving you a nasty look? Take it out -- in fact, take out the whole building!
Red Faction will not be just mindless destruction. The team is focused on story depth as well, so don't expect Red Faction to be a simple FPS. A new update to the official site includes a fictional bio about a character in the game named Gryphon. This is a worthwhile read which reveals the depth of story line this game is striving for.
Summoner Bug Fix of the Day
Summoner should be out for Mac and PC late this Winter. The release of Red Faction should also be near-simultaneous early next year.
