Bethesda, acclaimed developers of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, are the hot topic yet again. Teaming with Zombie Studios, an all-new first-person shooter entitled Rogue Warrior has been officially unveiled in the latest issue of Xbox 360 The Official Xbox Magazine, according to CVG.
Powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Rogue Warrior is a team-based, counter-terrorist shooter. No prizes for originality, but some impressive Xbox Live online features will be implemented. RW has four-player Live co-op and firing room for up to 24 players online.
To mix things up a little, Bethesda and Zombie have zealously revealed a multiplayer tiling system, which allows players to customise maps based on different sections of pre-existing areas - "tiling" them all together. Each level will be made up from three sections, chosen separately. You choose one, the opposing team picks another, and a random generator will decide the final field of battle from over 200 possibilities.
For surprise and strategy, the opposition will be unaware which section you are picking until the game begins, and vice versa. According to the developers, this will reduce tedium from replaying the same popular maps over and over, and generate some unpredictable multiplayer mayhem.
So far, the best release window we have is sometime in 2007, so stick with us for future updates.
