Atari Announces Burning Point: Road to Hell
Atari sets out to unleash a revolutionary FPS next year. First details inside.

by | October 18, 2004

Today Atari announced Boiling Point: Road to Hell, a new first-person shooter PC game which will offer players a massive open-ended world to explore, planned for release next Spring.

In Boiling Point: Road to Hell, gamers will travel to the present day jungles of South America and battle competing factions in a brutal guerrilla war. Developer Deep Shadows' innovative game engine streams the beautifully rendered environment, creating a non-linear gameplay experience, with no loading times or separate levels, creating a continuous world spanning hundreds of miles. To make the most of the environment, a massive range of vehicles will be at the disposal of the player, as well as a vast array of weapons.

According to the announcement, the company plans to “push the boundaries of what people think first-person action games can do”, says Wim Stocks, Executive Vice Predident, Sales and Marketing of Atari. “"Working with Deep Shadows is really exciting - they bring a fresh look and innovative ideas to a genre that needs new avenues for exploration."

The wide open game world features an array of different AI factions with which the player can interact, and hundreds of diverse missions to create an original experience each time the game is played. Combined with the vast seamless gaming world, the result is gameplay freedom and replayability on an unprecedented scale.

We’ll keep you posted as new information becomes available.
