There have definitely been some interesting and exciting announcements made at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) so far, and the new Blackwater game – which is being published by 505 Games and developed by Zombie Studios – for the Xbox 360 Kinect has to be one of them.
As noted over on the spong.com website, the Blackwater game – which is titled for the former name of the private security firm that was founded by former Navy SEAL Erik Prince back in 1997 – is an immersive first-person experience that is heading exclusively to the Xbox 360 Kinect sometime in the fall.
Players are given the ability to control the gameplay experience in two different ways: either by using a traditional Xbox 360 controller, or the Kinect’s controller-free abilities. The Blackwater game also comes with a variety of officially-licensed weapons that players can choose from.
Using the Xbox 360’s motion-sensing Kinect controller, gamers can do pretty much everything from moving their character around to aiming and firing their weapons. The game sees players leading a team of Blackwater Operators that are sent to protect a fictional North African town.
