CHAIR ENTERTAINMENT GROUP LAUNCHES UNDERTOW
FOR XBOX LIVE ARCADE
— Award-Winning Underwater Action-Shooter
Offers 16-player Online Combat and Stunning Visuals —
Chair Entertainment Group, an independent video
game production company, today announced its newest original property, Undertow,
has launched for Xbox LIVE Arcade, the premier destination for digitally
distributed, downloadable games. Undertow is powered by the Unreal Engine 3 and
offers an unprecedented 16-player online experience for Xbox LIVE Arcade.
"With Undertow, our goal was to create a game
that we as gamers would like to play – a full-featured, super fun game that
could deliver a completely original new gaming experience for XBLA," said Donald
Mustard, creative director at Chair Entertainment Group. "Whether players prefer
to dive in to the single player campaign or battle it out in an intense
multiplayer match, Undertow offers non-stop excitement for all types of gamers."
The fast-paced action of Undertow features a
robust 15-level single player and co-op campaign with two multiplayer modes for
up to 16 players. Players navigate the stormy seas as one of four unique,
upgradeable unit types ranging in ability from the fast and agile to the large
and powerful. Players then earn points for adding upgrades by killing enemies,
completing objectives, and taking checkpoints. The non-stop conquest-style
battles of Undertow push the envelope of on-screen effects and combat action
with stunning graphics and special effects.
One of the most anticipated games released for
Xbox LIVE Arcade to date, Undertow has received awards from some of the top
gaming enthusiast outlets including, Official Xbox Magazine, IGN, and Team Xbox.
