Unreal Engine 3 powers 'Project IM' FPS

Developer Zero Point Software reveals new futuristic blaster targeting PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Teaser trailer, erm, teases

Danish developer Zero Point Software has blown an early lid off Project IM (codename), a futuristic-laden first-person shooter that it's going to build on Epic's Unreal Engine 3 technology.

Zero Point says it's developing the game for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 and talks about how the title features an "original and unpredictable storyline featuring single and cooperative [for up to four players] gameplay, with heavy focus on realism". Setting is described as a "believable future" and the player straps on combat boots as a newly enlisted Special Forces soldier, bristling with firepower, "that will embark on breathtaking adventures".


The studio further promises randomised, non-linear gameplay, advanced weapons simulation and "Custom game modes featuring arcade, RPG and tactical elements".

Project IM is in the pre-development/negotiation phase according to the developer, and what it's currently showing in media is a "brief, pre-rendered showcase presenting our game concept. A teaser trailer for the title can be viewed on Zero Point Software's website.

Zero Point says we should get our next peek at Project IM in early 2006, at which time the developer plans to release a three-minute trailer.
