Midway Games today announced the release of Area 51, a story-driven first-person shooter for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
The game includes both alien and human weapons with online multiplayer for up to 16 players. Voice-acting talent is provided by David Duchovny and Marilyn Manson, who play as the lead character and a gray alien, respectively.
“Midway is a company with a deep vault of classic gaming franchises and reinventing some of those, such as Area 51, is a core part of Midway’s strategy for 2005 and beyond,” said Steve Allison of Midway Games.
“Delivering riveting and suspenseful gameplay that no console or PC owner should pass by, Area 51 is the only first-person action thriller to be set within the confines of the U.S.’s most secret military base,” Allison added.
