Third Person Action-Thriller Comes to the Xbox 360 in Early 2010

Glendale, CA – November 10th, 2009 – In early 2010, Ignition Entertainment Ltd., a UTV Enterprise, a worldwide publisher and developer of videogames is working in conjunction with Marvelous Entertainment to give gamers a glimpse into Deadly Premonition, a third-person survival horror action game releasing in North America on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Deadly Premonition, developed by Access Games, is a third-person survival horror action game which puts players in the role of the intuitive FBI Agent Francis York Morgan. In the process of investigating a murder, players will examine a series of interlocking mysteries in a remote rural town and will encounter an array of complex characters pivotal to the unraveling of the storyline’s mystery. Suspenseful action sequences will force players to make strategic moves, gliding by enemies in the shadows or engaging them with long-range weapons or hand-to-hand melee combat. From the unparalleled atmosphere, music and mysterious storyline to driving vehicles and exploring the entire town, Deadly Premonition will offer players a unique and haunting interactive gaming experience unlike any other.

“Deadly Premonition is an intense and unforgettable action game that we are thrilled to add to Ignition’s 2010 lineup,” said Shane Bettenhausen, New Business Development Director of Ignition Entertainment. “The gifted developers at Access Games have created a game that will undoubtedly heighten players’ senses as they dive deeper into the mysterious town, eerie story line and action-packed interactive elements.”

  • Just watched the teaser trailer on the site. It definately looks promising, though there were a few moments in the teaser I wasn’t sure of.

    However it looks good and as a fan of Survival Horror, I’ll be keeping an eye on it!

      Just added in the shots. To be honest, the graphics look very PS2-ish. Although, graphics shouldn’t affect gameplay so I’m hoping this plays well since I like these mystery games.
