Deadfall Adventures Slips To Sept, Announces Co-Op

By John Walker on June 13th, 2013 at 9:00 am.

I do love it when a press release attempts to sell a slip as a piece of news. Deadfall Adventures’ release date was so very much set for July 30th that its own website still hasn’t shaken the belief. Today it announces it’s “confirmed for September 27th release”. Phew, confirmed! Anyway, that peculiarly needless griping aside, the real news is that they’ve announced a co-op mode for the third-person actioner.

From Polish devs The Farm 51, who previously gave us okay NecroVisioN and not great Painkiller Hell & Damnation, the immediately comparison is Uncharted, but as an FPS.

With an emphasis on puzzle solving and exploring, it’s obviously a departure for the dev’s previous focus on madcap shooting frenzies. Picking up on Indie themes like fighting to beat the Nazis and Russians to ancient treasures, here the Heart Of Atlantis. You’re playing James Quatermain, who I assume is a descendent of Haggard’s Allan Quatermain.

Of the co-op they say,

“Adding the new survival cooperation mode adds even more content to the game which is always going to be a bonus for players. The new mode will be both challenging and engaging and players will be able to jump straight into the game to get the best of the action.”

Frustratingly there’s not been a trailer since the original, rather vapid announcement release back in February. Here it is again, but it would go a long way to reassuring people after a slip to show some in-game footage at this point.

Update! Ooh, splendid. A Farm 51 dev gets in touch to point out Gamespot have some in-game footage for us all to see!

    I have to say that I smiled when it first cut to the PR people for Nordic Games and there was a mouse + keyboard sitting on that little table all ready to go.

    RE the game itself – the concept (FPS Uncharted) is certainly one I’d be interested in but the combat in that video looked super dull. The standard human enemies took far too many bullets and there didn’t look like there was much in the way of a satisfying punch to the weapons. They also just seemed to spawn randomly and the AI looked ropey as hell.

    I like the concept of this game; hope it has a descent level of production.

    Lot’s of talk about adventuring, puzzles, Indiana Jones and inspiring books, but all I see them do is shooting men.

    Outbrain is suggesting I look at a picture of Princess Peach. Not a story, or anything, just a picture. Thanks, outbrain, I always wanted to know what Princess Peach looked like.
