Midway Games today announced that BlackSite: Area 51 is now shipping to retail outlets nationwide. Combining cutting-edge technology and smart game design, BlackSite: Area 51 is a first-person shooter that brings squad-based and intense combat action to the streets of small-town America. BlackSite: Area 51 is scheduled to be available for a U.S. suggested retail price of $59.99 for the Xbox 360 and $49.99 for PCs. A version for the PlayStation 3 is scheduled to be released in December.
“BlackSite: Area 51 delivers a fast-paced first-person-shooter experience while weaving a politically-inspired storyline that examines modern-day issues ripped from the headlines,” said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. “With an easy to use one-button squad command feature, players can easily direct their delta force squadmates to assist them as they travel through small town America and the high desert into the heart of Area 51.”
