• SiN Episodes: Emergence movie (WMV, 68.2MB) - right-click to download
Thursday 6 April 2006
We've successfully captured a cluster of shots from upcoming first-person shooter, SiN Episodes: Emergence, as well as an extensive trailer that treats us to a look at the game in action. You can check out the movie by clicking the link above.
Emergence is the first instalment in a series of nine episodic adventures that revisits the world of SiN - first introduced to gamers back in 1998 - as HardCorps commander John Blade continues his pursuit of Elexis Sinclaire, a Dr Frankenstein of the future with her own rather nasty designs on humanity.
Due for PC release on 12 May through conventional shopping methods, as well as being available for download now on Valve's Steam distribution service - although the downloaded episode won't be playable until 9 May - Emergence promises interactive environments, mutant enemies and vehicle combat, with each episode apparently offering between three and six hour chunks of action.
We'll be keeping a close check to see just how popular this experiment in segmented delivery proves to be and if Emergence can keep its players hooked for nine separate instalments, which in itself would be an incredible achievement.
