505 Games announce new Blackwater game for Xbox 360 Kinect

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.
