New Hour of Victory screens and video; WWII shooter? Not you again


11:57 AM on 04.04.2007



Another year, another flood of WWII first-person shooters. In case your memory is a bit foggy, Midway's Hour of Victory for the Xbox 360 is attempting to do something just a tad different from other WWII FPS titles by letting you control three different character types throughout the game. The standard PR lines say it perfect:

Hour of Victory allows you to play a key role in the pivotal and cinematic battles from the European and North African theaters of World War II, using the skills and gameplay style you choose. Sneak into enemy territory as a covert operative, storm the gates as a British Commando, or snipe from afar as an Army Ranger. Each characters unique attributes will be needed for the fulfillment of the overall objective. Only with all these skills working closely together will you be able to say that you helped define the Hour of Victory.

Built using the powerful Unreal® Engine 3.0, Hour of Victory combines authentic details from historic World War II battles and adds in frenetic and cinematic gameplay. Players will also be able to take control of any vehicle on the battlefield as they sharpen their skills to impact the key battles from the European and North African Theaters.

Ah, like music to my ears. So, what do you think? Have room for another historical shooter?
