505 GAMES KICKS OFF THE NEW YEAR
WITH CHILLING TERROR, FAST-PACED SHOOTING AND TACTICAL WARFARE
505 Games has today announced
that it is releasing icy survival horror Cryostasis, fast-paced monster FPS
NecroVisioN and World War II strategy title Men of War under the 1C Company
label on 20th February 2009 exclusively on PC.
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 and destroy it. 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 also become the latest victim of the terrible cold?
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

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.
