NEW DAMNATION™ VIDEO REVEALS HOW TO MAKE ALL THE RIGHT MOVES

New developer insight video ‘It’s all About the Moves’ demonstrates ways to navigate through Damnation’s immense vertical levels: www.damnationthegame.com

Set to take the shooter off the rails and out of the corridors, Codemasters® today released a brand new developer insight video for Damnation™, the steam-punk themed action shooter from developer Blue Omega. Now available to view or download from www.damnationthegame.com, the video features in-depth developer commentary from producer Richard Gilbert and technical art director Carl Schell detailing the daredevil stunts players can execute to traverse the vertigo-inducing levels on offer in Damnation.

In Damnation fluid movement is the key to staying alive. Using a plethora of acrobatic moves, players will be able to climb ladders, swing on poles, use zip lines, flip up onto high ledges and dive through windows to reach their goal. Intuitive navigation allows players to plot a course through the environment, either to avoid the smart AI or to get to higher ledges and rain down death from above using any of the steam-punk inspired weapons on offer.

“You can really intuitively navigate through the levels of Damnation as the game offers a degree of flexibility not available in other shooters”, says Richard Gilbert, Producer. “If you’re blocked by a gate and there’s a window right next to it, you don’t have to run around looking for a key-card, just dive through the window! It’s all about seeing a path and choosing to take it.”

In addition to the extensive single-player campaign, Damnation will also deliver drop-in-drop-out co-operative online play and innovative multiplayer modes. Taking advantage of the scale and height of Damnation’s levels, new game types, alongside traditional deathmatch and capture the flag modes, are given a vertical twist where players have to balance firepower and agility and can kill or be killed from any direction.

Coming May 22nd for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC, check out Damnation’s moves in the new view, now available to view and download from www.damnationthegame.com
