Hybrid Now Available For Xbox 360; Launch Trailer Kicks Into Action
5th Cell's third-person shooter, Hybrid, is currently available for the Xbox 360. As usual, the game didn't just launch for the masses, it launched with a kickbutt launch trailer to show the masses what they'll be missing out on if they decide not to play.
The game runs at a mesmerizing 60 frames per second, so the action is always fluid and about as smooth as a sleazy producer milking young talent in the seedy underbelly of New York. And nothing gets smoother than a sleazy producer milking young talent in the seedy underbelly of New York...except for maybe a sleazy executive producer milking old talent in the seedy upper-belly of L.A.
Anyways, you can check out the game in action below, but not before first reading a pre-selected quote for public promotional purposes from Hybrid's creative director, Jeremiah Slaczka, who states...
“We’re excited to finally release Hybrid, 5TH Cell’s latest game, which continues its tradition of injecting new, innovative gameplay into the industry.” ... “Hybrid brings a unique twist to the shooter genre merging fast-paced gameplay with a persistent online world war where every battle matters.”
Set in the near future, the prime gimmick of Hybrid is the free-space environments, enabling gamers to move around the arenas using jetpacks and attaching themselves to any surface. This will easily create some dynamic and competitive player-vs-player moments.
The entire game revolves around a sort of seasonal persistence, as indicated very briefly in the trailer. Players will battle it out on opposing sides while acquiring resources to help their side earn a victory. The bouts will consist of small 3-on-3 skirmishes and at the end of a season a victory will be declared in each territory, earning players goodies both for the winners and losers (although, the goodies for the losers aren't anywhere near as good as the goodies for the winners).
You can pick up a digital copy of Hybrid right now for the Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 MS Points. For more information feel free to pay a visit to the game's Official Website.
