Ubisoft today announced that it will be publishing Cold Fear, the first action-horror title under the Ubisoft brand. Developed by Darkworks, the game will launch simultaneously for the PlayStation 2, the Xbox, and PC-CD Rom.
"We're excited to make our debut in the horror genre with a unique title like Cold Fear," said Tony Kee, Vice-President of Marketing for Ubisoft. "It falls into a previously un-tapped category of realistic action-horror gameplay, including vast environments and a disturbingly plausible storyline."
Players step into the role of Tom Hansen, a U.S. Coast Guard who is sent to board a drifting Russian whaling ship in the middle of a howling storm on the Bering Sea. He arrives only to discover that terrifying surprises await him on the bloodstained decks of the constantly rocking, shifting vessel.
Cold Fear is slated for release in March 2005.
