World War I (not II!) shooter revealed

Kuju is promising to set new high standards in the first-person genre with its new Unreal Engine 3 shooter, To End All Wars, in development for 360 and PS3 and due to release in Summer 2008.

It's to World War I we go, this game set in the war-torn trenches of Europe, and Kuju hopes to put together the most accurate recreation of the conflict ever.

"The authenticity of the conflict has been put at the heart of the project. Period locations will be recreated in lavish detail, only weaponry of the time will be available and character design will reflect the uniforms and style of the era," explains Ghostlight, the publisher.

"The FPS genre is a competitive market, however we believe that To End All Wars will be an exceptional title that will form the basis of a new gaming franchise," adds Ghostlight director, Khaled Lababedi.

Ghostlight hopes that To End All Wars will be one of the key titles to help in "its stated objective of becoming a major global publisher." It had better bedamn good, then.
