The guys over at G4 stopped by our inbox to share some Haze videos that are going to serve as the preface to their preview of the game on X-Play tonight. While taking the game through its rounds, the staff decided that this "looker" might interest a few of you. Since we agreed, here's all three of them for your viewing pleasure. The one above takes place in the Salva Region, where your primary objective is to recover some of that good old performance-enhancing Nectar from a downed plane.
Just in case you weren't already in the know, Nectar is some mighty powerful stuff, but comes with some prettty nasty side effects. Sounds like the videogame equivalent of steriods to me, but Ubisoft is betting that PS3 owners will be climbing over each other to secure copies of the game when it's released in May. After viewing these, you just might become part of that statistic yourselves.
More goodies, after the jump:
Next on the list is a mission involving a Mantel boat and revelations of terrifying secrets. This one is referred to as "Falcon," and as you can tell, is filled with a lot of enemy smack talk.
Following up close behind is part of the Dientes de Vaca level, which highlights a vehicle section and the forward march towards an enemy stronghold.
Last but not least comes a sneak peek of a later mission towards the end of the game. In this one, we see highlights of an assault on the Mantel stronghold in Mirador del Aguila.
Now that we've seen more of what Haze has to offer, the question still remains: Is this one of the exclusive games that will further drive PlayStation 3 sales, or are we looking at yet another generic FPS to further saturate the already crowded landscape?
I'm still not ready to make a call on that one myself, but at the very least, Haze is piquing my interest. How about you? Anyway, don't forget about that preview on today's X-Play we reminded you about. Perhaps Adam and Morgan will be able to sway us one way or the other.
