Inversion slipped through my radar, but no longer! Namco Bandai and developers Saber Interactive are working on this beautiful game. Inversion is a 3rd person (co-op if you want) shooter where you can control gravity all you fucking want. Using your grappler, you can wreck enemies, throw shit all around, solve puzzles, basically anything.
Inversion will be the 1st, and seemingly not the last game to feature the Havok Destruction Engine which will enable you to completely wreck your surroundings. Past the break for more. Set in the near future, the tranquil peace enjoyed by mankind shatters with an unforeseen invasion by an unknown enemy called the Lutadore. Armed to the teeth with futuristic gravity-controlling weapons, the Lutadore easily overrun the city’s defenses. Unbeknownst to all, mysterious anomalies have surfaced in conjunction with the invasion. Random regions in the city have entered zero gravity or have suffered vector changes, throwing the world into topsy-turvy chaos. Assuming the role of Davis Russel, a hotheaded 28-year-old cop, or Leo Delgado, Davis’ neighbor, players will embark on a journey through the war ravaged gravity twisted disorienting streets of their home town and beyond, to find Davis’ missing child.
Inversion won’t be out until February 7th, 2012 on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
