It looks a lot like Gears of War but also features a few twists on that third-person shooter formula.
And if you live in Europe or the US and own a PlayStation 3, you get a chance to test it out before anyone else. According to Electronic Theatre , Tecmo Koei has announced that a playable demo of Quantum Theory is now available to download on the PlayStation Network. Xbox 360 users will get a chance to try it "later this month." The demo lets you take control of Syd, the big bad-ass warrior with only one thing on his mind (revenge). He teams up with the mysterious Filena who doesn't have to rely on guns; she has a unique combat technique that provides a nice contrast to Syd's blasting style. You must battle the Diablosis, a black material that seems to infect anything it touches, so get ready for a rough ride. Electronic Theatre offered some quick feedback:
"Quantum Theory is clearly shaping-up to be a title worth keeping an eye on. While it may never compete with the blockbuster budget available to Epic Games and Microsoft in terms of visual fidelity, it certainly got enough interesting ideas to propose a new direction for the genre."
Quantum Theory is set to launch on September 24 in Europe; it holds a September 28 release date here in the US. Of course, we'll give you our impressions on the demo as soon as we get a chance to sit down and play it (probably tomorrow), and we'll also bring you Tecmo's answers to your questions soon.
