DeNA Ushers in Next Revolution of Core Mobile Games with First-person Shooter The Drowning™
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
DeNA Co., Ltd. (TSE: 2432) today announced the development of The
Drowning, a high-intensity, console-quality, first-person-shooter
(FPS) game custom built for mobile devices. The Drowning is the
first game developed by Scattered Entertainment, a DeNA studio in
Stockholm, Sweden. Set in an immersive 3D world and featuring a grim,
suspenseful storyline, The Drowning is a free-to-play game that
will be published on iOS devices in early 2013.
"We've been at the forefront of innovation in free-to-play mobile games
since the beginning, and we're changing the definition of the space once
again with The Drowning," said Clive Downie, CEO at DeNA's U.S.
subsidiary ngmoco (News - Alert), LLC. "We can't wait to give players a quality,
hardcore FPS experience for their mobile devices."
Under the leadership of industry veteran and free-to-play visionary Ben
Cousins, The Drowning is a revolutionary first-person shooter
game, experienced through the eyes of one of the few survivors of a
mysterious global catastrophe. Fighting for survival in a world where
unexplained oil spills have transformed millions into soulless
creatures, players craft and upgrade a powerful and unique arsenal of
weapons as they work together and alone to explore, survive and dominate.
"Scattered Entertainment's vision is to bring the type of deep,
high-quality and immersive games normally only experienced on PC and
consoles, to the convenient, powerful modern mobile device," said Ben
Cousins, general manager of Scattered Entertainment nd head of DeNA's
European studio operations. "The Drowning combines the
play-patterns and touch-screen specific control systems expected of
tablet and smartphone games with unmatched console-quality graphics,
innovative skill-based gameplay and a rich, expansive fictional world."
