Deep Silver wade in to Scrapland
Deep Silver, the spritely young publisher behind Singles and X2: The Threat in the UK has confirmed today the signing of Scrapland, the action-adventure game being created in part by former id maestro American McGee. The game will be published in Europe this January, on the Xbox and PC. Mercury Steam are the developer behind this third-person adventure title. This is one of McGee's first releases since EA brought us his dark take on Alice in Wonderland, and is expectations are high for this ambitious new title.
"I knew I wanted to be involved with this project the moment I met with Mercury Steam and saw the game," McGee enthused. "Scrapland has an extremely unique free-form style of play that capitalises on the success of games like GTA3, yet takes it one step further." The Xbox version should be released first, with the PC edition following rapidly. More on Scrapland as we get it.
