New details about haze

Haze - Image 1German gaming news website GameFront has managed to score some info on Free Radical and Ubisoft‘s upcoming shooter Haze courtesy of the June 2007 issue of Independent PlayStation Magazine.

According to GameFront, Haze runs on its own engine at a framerate of 30 fps. Loading times and “intermediate sequences” are supposedly nonexistent. It has four gameplay modes: online, offline, LAN, and split-screen. In single player, team members will be controlled completely by the computer. Oh, and the main character seems to have undergone a name change. While he was referred to as Jake Carpenter in previous interviews, the GameFront post mentions him as “Shan” Carpenter.

The weapons and gear available in the game include the following:

  • BSW-72 Assault Rifle – fires armor-piercing 5.56mm uranium projectiles
  • Trooper Assault Helmet – supplies real-time data to troopers on the battlegrounds while keeping constant contact with the base through a built-in communication device
  • Nectar administrator – found on the neck of soldiers. Has up to five doses of Nectar, a “biometric substance” that greatly augments a soldier’s combat abilities. Too much Nectar has side effects, though.
  • SK3 Fragment Shells – ideal for clearing up massed enemies and destroying small vehicles
  • Wilson D6 Pistol – equipped with 2x magnification and a laser target and holds 18 shots.
  • Integrated Schutzpanzer – no idea what “Schutzpanzer” means exactly, but the description leads us to believe that this is the heaviest armor in the game (“withstands the most rifle and pistol balls”)

Haze is slated for a multiplatform release on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. A specific release date has yet to be announced, but some sites have the game’s release listed as November.
