Eigentlich dachten wir, dass erste 3D-Game auf der PS3 bestaunen zu dürfen. Der Publisher Data Design sorgt nun aber für eine kleine Überraschung. Wii-Besitzer werden nämlich anscheinend als erste in den Genuss von 3D-Gaming kommen.

Der Packshot sieht mal ganz gut aus.

Das Spiel, welches uns im wahrsten Sinne also die Augen öffnen wird, hört auf den Namen Battle Rage: The Robot Wars und erschien bereits 2008 für den PC. Dabei handelt es sich um einen 3rd-Person-Shooter mit Beat ‚em‘ Up-Elementen. In unterschiedlichen Arenen wird man gigantische Roboter steuern können, welche natürlich jeweils über unterschiedliche Waffen und Fähigkeiten verfügen. Insgesamt stehen 8 verschiedene Roboter zur Auswahl, 20 Waffen und 10 Arenen. Battle Rage wird zusätzlich über einen Multiplayer-Modus verfügen.

Das eigentlich Revolutionäre wird allerdings – wie bereits erwähnt – die Möglichkeit sein, das Game in 3D zu spielen. Dazu benötigt man die dem Spiel beigelegten Rot/Grün-Brillen. Wer eine solche bereits daheim hat, kann sich ja schon mal unser Video zum Game ansehen und in die dritte Dimension vorstoßen. Erste Screenshots zum Game findet ihr in unserer Galerie. Erscheinen soll das Spiel noch 2009.

Battle Rage: The Robot Wars the third person shooter with elements of a beat’em’up game that allows a player to control giant robots.

The Story

Creation
It all begun in 2036 with invention of The Drive Robot. After nearly a century of over population the earth turned its eyes towards the stars. First the Moon and then Mars had to submit to mankind’s expansion. Space became swarmed with shiny hulls of ships.

Space turned into an obsession with many explorers. It was an everyman’s dream to witness extraterrestrial wonders, at least once. But as many men found out, if want to explore the mysteries of Space you need more then just sheer determination.

It showed quickly how much space exploration was dependant on the robotic technologies that we created. So we built more – each bigger and more advanced than the previous. We designed metal giants in our own image. We considered them the finest tools in the history of craftsmanship.

The Golden Age of humanity was to last forever.

The Fall
Delighted with our creations and obsessed with modern technologies, we disregarded the teachings of our history, and many of Earth’s atrocities were forgotten. Theories emerged that lack of history would lead to the downfall of mankind.

If we would of listened, we would have saved thousands innocent lives. We died instead, like the passengers of the “Titanic”, driven by our vanity.

The lack of historical understanding left us unwilling to prevent tragic events. Tiny arguments between governments quickly became deadly wars. Robotic Technologies enabled individuals to turn a war into personal crusades.

Ironically, our greatest and most promising settlement “Mars” – turned into a flaming tomb for countless war machines. Where the luminous, glimmering cosmic cities once stood, heaps of junk laid – the only remnants left.

The „Mars” incident was a brick to the head for Mankind; we realized we were far from perfection. We had only one option left… to Battle!
