BlackSite: Area 51 Goes Gold

Xbox 360 and PC versions  to ship on November 12

Midway today announced that BlackSite: Area 51, the immersive and fast-paced action FPS title, has gone gold and is set to ship for Xbox 360 and PC in North America Nov. 12. A PlayStation 3 version is scheduled for North American release in December.

BlackSite: Area 51 gives gamers a chance to direct their living, breathing squad mates with a context-sensitive "One-Button Squad Command" control. Destructible environments can be reduced to rubble, creating interactive cover points that can be blown away with enough firepower.

Blacksite: Area 51 is set to ship to stores Nov. 12 for Xbox 360 and PC, with a PlayStation 3 version expected in time for the holidays.

Gamers can still download the BlackSite teaser demo on Xbox LIVE Marketplace to take to the streets in Rachel, NV, controlling their squad and blasting through fully-realistic and interactive environments using the latest in military weaponry. Another demo for Xbox Live is scheduled to be released soon, and a PS3 demo will be released later this year.
