Sega Announces Xbox 360 Mech Game
Sega of America and Sega Europe today announced Chromehounds for the Xbox 360. This squad-based action title puts gamers in control of giant mechanized military weapons of war. With a strong focus on cooperative and competitive online gameplay, the game is sure to satisfy players looking for a deep, involving experience on Microsoft’s Xbox Live service.
Developed by Tokyo-based FROM Software – the creative team responsible for the popular Armored Core and Otogi series – Chromehounds offers an intense, photorealistic look at war from the cockpits of colossal metal vehicles. These heavily-armed weapons of war, called HOUNDS, dominate ground battles during warfare in the near-future. Squads of HOUNDS take to the field in international factions, cooperating with and complementing each other in terms of firepower, range of movement, and abilities.
Domination of the world is the prize for the mightiest army on the field. Strategic planning, snap reflexes and communication are key to winning the day in this battle-hardened action title. Players will take the role of either a Squad Member or a Tactics Commander, who is responsible for strategically guiding the team to victory with verbal commands on Xbox Live.
