New Vita games announced alongside EU launch line-up
Two new titles were announced to brighten up the PS Vita's not-too-shabby launch line up for next February. They include Unit 13, a squad shooter from Zipper (The Socom guys) and MotoStorm RC, a scaled-down version of the PS3/PSP series. Here's what Sony has to say about the games, pics later.
Unit 13 - An Authentic Shooter Built to Play in the Field
First revealed was Unit 13, a third-person military shooter that will offer gamers a true, dual-analogue experience. Designed from the ground up for PS Vita by Zipper Interactive, Unit 13 focuses on contemporary mission scenarios with an authentic ‘ripped from the headlines' feel.
Players will be tasked with demanding missions in the most hostile regions of the world - to stop terrorists, dictators, gunrunners, warlords and drug traffickers from destabilising the Horn of Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and South Asia.
Players will choose from six different classes - Infiltrator, Sniper, Soldier, Technician, Point Man, and Support - based on their role and your own playing style.
Designed specifically for PS Vita, Unit 13 focuses on portable play, with bite-sized gameplay and a non-linear mission structure that will allow players to jump in at any time, without having to keep up with a story or previous events.
MotorStorm RC - Addictive and Social RC Action
SCEE also revealed a brand new PS Vita launch title from Evolution Studios, MotorStorm RC.
A unique blend of old-school and contemporary racing gameplay, MotorStorm RC is an addictive racer, with social interaction at the fore. Players will be able to build an impressive garage of vehicles, with 24 vehicles initially available to unlock in the game, with DLC and expansion packs allowing gamers to access new tracks, vehicles, and more, planned after launch.
