Chair Entertainment Group, an independent video game production company, today announced its newest original property, Undertow, is currently in development for Xbox LIVE Arcade, the premier destination for digitally distributed, downloadable games. Expected to go live worldwide this summer, Undertow is powered by the Unreal Engine 3 and offers an unprecedented 16-player online experience for Xbox LIVE Arcade.
"We've really enjoyed designing Undertow for Xbox LIVE Arcade because it's given us the freedom to create a pure gaming experience focused on fun, addictive game play" said Donald Mustard, creative director at Chair Entertainment. "Whether a player is looking for hours of intense multiplayer or they have just 10 minutes for the ultimate gaming experience, we're confident Undertow will be as exciting to play as it has been for us to create."
The fast-paced action of Undertow features two multiplayer modes for up to 16 players, and a robust 15-level single player and co-op campaign. 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.
