Clive Barker's Jericho news and screenshots

Thanks to Voodoo Extreme for the tidbit.

Clive Barker's Jericho is a squad-based action horror game based on an original concept and story by acclaimed horror writer and filmmaker Clive Barker.

An ancient evil has broken through into our world and is threatening to spread its taint across the whole of the earth unless it's stopped. At ground zero lies the Middle Eastern city of Al-Khali, a modern city built atop the ancient ruins of a dozen previous conquerors. All attempts with contacting the doomed citizens of the city have failed. With tensions already running high in the region, this is just the sort of thing that could trigger the Apocalypse...

Created from an original concept and story, Clive Barker's Jericho promises an overload of sensory horror shock as players journey through hellish locations and slices of time. A squad-based horror FPS, the Jericho of the title refers to the Jericho Team, a seven-man strike force that protects government interests from paranormal threats. Trained in both conventional warfare and the arcane arts, each Jericho Team member is an expert in different para-psychological disciplines, including clairvoyance, alchemy, blood magic and exorcism.

Jericho is played from the first-person perspective as the Jericho Team moves through labyrinthine streets, alleys and structures, encountering horrific armies from the mind of Clive Barker. The player leads the Jericho Team into the flaming ruins of the city, moving block by block towards the dimensional rift at its heart. Along the way, they encounter the hellish denizens that now rule the city and corrupt everything they touch. As the player gets closer to the source of the evil, he will have to rely less and less on traditional weapons and instead on the combined psychic talents of his team mates.
