In Mother Russia, The Games Release You!
505 Games today releases the long-anticipated 1C game triumvirate of Men of War, Cryostasis and NecroVisioN. Covering the major aspects of the PC gaming market, the three games take you from the trenches of the First World War (and the hell beneath them), to the roving skirmishes of World War II and finally to the frozen wastes of the Arctic in the late 1960s. You’ll battle vampires and the undead, control entire armies, and even have flashbacks into the mind of a cow.
All three games are available in all good high street shops, or from online retailers, and have a recommended retail price of 29.99.
CRYOSTASIS Taking place in the Arctic Circle in 1981, players take on the role of Alexander Nesterov, a Russian meteorologist sent to investigate the final hours of the North Wind, an old nuclear ice-breaker shipwrecked in an icy grave. The freezing cold has turned the inhabitants of the ship into freakish frozen monsters that will hunt down anything warm. Thankfully, Alex possesses a unique ‘Mental Echo’ ability, which allows him to relive the final memories of the dead and change their actions in the past. But, can Alex discover what happened on the North Wind or will he become the latest victim of the terrible cold?
NECROVISION NecroVisioN is a first-person horror shooter, which sees players taking on the role of American soldier Simon Bukner, who must fight his way through the bleak trenches of World War One and into the jaws of Hell. Dead soldiers are coming back to life with a lust for human flesh, a mad German scientist has created a giant robotic scorpion and an ancient war between vampires and demons is threatening to wipe out humanity. Armed with his powerful Shadow Hand and demonic weapons, Bukner must battle to save himself... and the world.
MEN OF WAR See World War Two from three different sides - Russian, Allied and German – as you command entire armies and plot your battle strategies across epic maps based on real-life locations. Men of War takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features three different campaigns, each with their own unique units, vehicles and missions. From the Russian missions starring two student comrades fresh to the horrors of war, players are soon catapulted into massive battles with dozens of units under their command. In addition to the in-depth single player experience, Men of War also unleashes a range of multiplayer maps based on the main missions along with action-packed ‘capture the flag’ and ‘high-value cargo’ modes.
