After the recent announcement that the game Mafia II will be 3D Vision-ready we now have more good news coming from Square Enix. They’ve just announced that the PC version of their upcoming third-person shooter Front Mission Evolved will also be 3D Vision-ready, but unfortunately the owners of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will not get 3D functionality as the game won’t feature native stereo 3D support.
Front Mission Evolved breaks the mold of the franchise, delivering the action-packed experience of a third-person shooter within the distinct aesthetic of the Front Mission universe. Set in a world full of destruction, conspiracy and crumbling alliances, players will take on the role of Dylan Ramsey to face enemy armies while in control of a giant, customizable, bipedal tank known as a wanzer. Every wanzer is outfitted with extreme firepower, and players must fight through critical battles across a world on the brink of total war. As they make their way through metropolises such as New York City over 150 years in the future, Front Mission Evolved will embed players in heart-pounding, large-scale action unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. In addition to the single-player campaign, four different multiplayer modes allow players to enter a new battlefield solo or in a team. Players will be able to pit their highly customized wanzers against opponents from around the world so they may prove the superiority of their own war machines.
Front Mission Evolved will be available at North American retailers for the suggested retail price of $59.99 for the PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360, and $49.99 for Windows PC. The official launch date for the title was pushed back to September 14th, 2010 for North America and September 17th for Europe. The game will also be available for PC users via online download when released, including through Valve’s Steam platform for digital content distribution.
