The Xbox version of American McGee's Scrapland
has made it to final master and will be shipping to stores on February 25th. The sci-fi murder mystery features some innovative new graphics and a cool murder mystery for you to solve.
PARKVILLE, MD, February 11, 2005 â€“ The wait for console fans is over! Enlight announced today that American McGee Presents Scrapland has gone gold and is on target for its February 25 ship date for the XboxÂ® video game system from Microsoft. Currently available for the PC, the Xbox version of Scrapland features the same gameplay experience as well as a unique lock-on targeting feature that makes the combat more accessible to console gamers.
The Xbox exclusive lock-on feature is designed to remove the disorientation that is sometimes associated with 3D console games. By pressing the left trigger button, players can lock their viewpoint onto a specific target while maneuvering freely with the left analog stick. Lock-on also plays a key role in the realm of space combat where the action is fast and frenzied. When a target is locked in, the playerâ€™s ship will automatically match the targetâ€™s speed and velocity, allowing players to focus purely on combat. This exciting new feature complements Scraplandâ€™s expansive game world and open-ended gameplay
â€œWeâ€™re really happy with the way Scrapland turned out for Xbox â€“ the system really seems to make the game shine,â€ said Executive Producer American McGee. â€œGamers will especially appreciate the lock-on targeting feature which makes playing this style of game so much more intuitive.â€
In Scrapland, players step into the shoes of D-Tritus, an intergalactic traveler who finds himself involved in a series of mysterious murders committed in a world where death had previously been unknown. Throughout the adventure, D-Tritus will have the ability to morph into 15 different characters ranging from a bombshell with an explosive attitude to a money-hungry banker. Each character comes alive through state of the art visuals including advanced shader techniques and the use of bloom lighting.
Here are just a few of the things that the press has been saying about the PC version of American McGee Presents Scrapland:
