505 GAMES' MORPHX SET TO INVADE XBOX 360™ CONSOLES THIS JUNE
Players Endure Alien Mutation to Save Humanity from Certain Destruction in Upcoming Sci-Fi Third-Person Shooter
505 Games today announced that the upcoming action-packed sci-fi third-person shooter MorphX, formerly titled The Swarm, will be available nationwide on June 1, 2010 for Xbox 360™. In MorphX, players emerge from an underground shelter to find their planet devastated following a hostile alien invasion. Outgunned and overpowered, it appears all efforts to fight the vicious aliens are futile. Players soon discover that the only way to defeat their enemies may be to become mutants themselves by absorbing alien DNA. As players morph into alien-human hybrids, their new powers give them advantages to battle the alien infestation.
While searching for an antidote to cure their allies, players have a variety of weapons-including firearms, clubs, plasma projectors and grenades -- for melee or ranged combat against enemies. Additionally, players will solve mini-games and puzzles, allowing for the option to absorb new abilities that make them more adept at fighting tougher enemies. Players can then build and morph alien DNA chains to improve different abilities like an increased regeneration rate, or enhanced vision.
While on a mission to rescue their allies, the question remains: what is left of humanity to save?
MorphX is set to swarm shelves on June 1 for Xbox 360™.
