The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

XEVICOM FORVER: THE VIDEOGAME ANNOUNCED FOR PC

Cult Graphic Novel Xevicom Forever is to be Adapted into a First Person Shooter for PC

Love can build a wall. Hate can tear it down. Justice Stands Forever. Xevicom.com has today announced that cult graphic novel, Xevicom Forever, from bestselling fantasy author Ray Reid is to be adapted into a first person action game set for release in Q1 2010 exclusively on PC. The game, Xevicom Unlimited, is not an adaptation of the existing comic but is instead a new chapter in the exciting dystopian future Reid first portrayed in Xevicom Forever in 2005, with new stories, characters, and scenarios that add to and expand the existing narrative.

Set shortly after the events of the graphic novel, Xevicom Unlimited introduces players to Xevicom City in the aftermath of the comic’s bloody finale. Shockwave, the serial murderer whose activities set in motion the comic’s events, is rotting in prison but events surrounding his capture have further destabilized the delicate balance of power in Xevicom’s streets and organised (and disorganised) criminal bands have begun a bloody campaign of retribution against the city’s few remaining vigilantes. For the first time ever players will be able to take control of the mysterious Prophet in a story that follows his battle to quell this gang warfare whilst exploring his hitherto unknown origins. Through action packed battle sequences to rooftop chases, Xevicom Unlimited will bring the comic’s world to life like never before.

The game play in Xevicom Unlimited will focus on narrative driven action with a wide selection of heavy weaponry, intelligent enemy AI and exploration of the eponymous city. Indeed, exploration will be a key tactic as the game will feature a semi-open world layout that will allow players to tailor their gaming experience, whilst dealing with the moral dilemmas of vigilantism. The city of Xevicom will be brought to life with a colourful cast of characters, access to the world’s own fictional newspaper as well as the ability of players to manipulate their character’s moral standing among Xevicom’s citizens.

The game, being developed internally at Xevicom.com, features a new story by the graphic novel’s author, Ray Reid who said “I never expected to be able to continue the story of the Xevicom universe but this new videogame adaptation gives me a chance to pursue that dream in a completely new way.” Xevicom Unlimited is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2010. Xevicom Forever, the graphic novel, is out now as a digital download for PC with versions due out in the coming weeks for the Apple iPhone/iPod Touch and the PlayStation Portable.
