SINGULARITY

2010–1950

 

Sin­gu­lar­i­ty looks to be a pret­ty sweet game set to release near the end of this com­ing June. The sto­ry takes place on an island near Sovi­et Rus­sia called kator­ga-12 where a rare and undis­cov­ered ele­ment was dis­cov­ered by Stal­in and his sci­en­tist in 1949/50. Upon fur­ther inves­ti­ga­tion and exper­i­men­ta­tion on the rare ele­ment named E99 (ele­ment 99) it was deter­mined that it had some kind of time warp­ing prop­er­ties due to some researchers being chared and appear­ing to have died either much old­er or much younger than they actu­al­ly were. After much exper­i­men­ta­tion and the chaos that result­ed from said exper­i­men­ta­tion Stal­in had the entire island quarn­tined just before his death. 60yrs lat­er in 2010 strange activ­i­ty is noticed on a remote atoll in the near Rus­sia and a USAF pilot is sent to do recon and in doing so gets sucked into the islands biz­zar chain of events and is tasked not only with sur­vival from mutat­ed crea­tures lost to the world and being ripped through time but also the pre­ven­tion of anoth­er Cher­nobyl or pos­si­bly worse.

While the many things in the game have been done before Sin­gu­lar­i­ty seems to have a unique feel to it, it seems to me that between the games sto­ry, the visu­als and envi­ron­ment fac­tors Sin­gu­lar­i­ty will prove to be a hit we can all enjoy. One a side note the game is made by Devel­op­er Raven Soft­ware which is owned by Activi­sion who in light of recent IW events have proven them­selved a bunch of greedy uneth­i­cal douch­ers, so it will be inter­est­ing to see how much they in sales for this game and future games no mat­ter how it may appear. I per­son­al­ly and a bit torn, I dont want to sup­port Activi­sion and what they seem to stand for but I will most like­ly force myself to look past the Activi­sion brand­ing and buy the game for what it is and not who put it out. Im a suck­er for a good game, espe­cial­ly a sci-fi shoot­er and prob­a­bly wont be able to help myself, in any case I think this will be a good game worth check­ing out and will post a review of it should I buy this game.
