Believe it or not but there will be one: Warco, short for “war correspondent”. Warco is the first FPS where instead of a gun, you’re armed only with your wits and your video camera. Your job – as a war correspondent – is to record dramatic images of war in the dangerous conflicts, save them and then edit the results into a compelling frontline TV news story, in order to beam the results to global audiences on the web.
Developed as a partnership between Brisbane (Australia based Defiant Development), filmmaker Robert Connolly and journalist Tony Maniaty – the game is about navigating through a morally gray world and making decisions that have human impact. It’s about finding the story you want to tell, as each of the environments are filled with different story elements you can film and combine in your own ways.
All footage is taken from the proof of concept playable developed in UDK – all in game, barring the final news story which would be edited together by the player from the war footage they’ve captured.
