Chile-based developer ACE Team has licensed the Source engine for Zeno Clash, an upcoming action/fighting game for release on PC next year. Here’s the deal:
Zeno Clash is an action game with a strong focus on melee combat set in a punk fantasy world. Featuring up close and brutal combat in a first-person perspective, the game is played in battle scenarios where the adversaries are always dangerously close and the use of exotic firearms and artifacts is a commodity. The new close combat mechanics are a deviation from traditional shooting in the FPS genre that will feel fresh for players.
The first chapter is set in a fantastic & chaotic world where the main character has been exiled from his clan and hunted down by his own brothers. A desperate journey past the forbidden desert will bring him to the end of the world.
The game’s official website is up, dishing out some more information on the game. Check out the first screenshots below.
