Blackwater – The Video Game

E3 is happening right now, so it’s only expected that a lot of new video game information would be coming out, but this is something I couldn’t have foreseen in a million years. 505 Games is publishing Blackwater, which will take place in a fictional North African town. As a Blackwater operative, you and your team will battle two Warlords’ factions in “an intense, cinematic shooter experience” for the safety of the town. The game is being produced with consultation from Blackwater founder Erik Prince and former Blackwater members, who are ensuring “… accuracy of moves, gestures, and gameplay.” In addition, the game will also feature a selection of officially-licensed weaponry. To be honest, 505 Games isn’t the most… high profile publisher, so I’m not expecting anything amazing. Plus, with all the bad vibes associated with the Blackwater name, I’m surprised anyone would even want to develop a game based on it.

    I believe you men “ensuring”. Also, the game publisher isn’t as important as the studio that develops the game. Granted, the good game publishers already have the good well known studios, but every once in a while an unknown makes a hit.

    Grammatical error fixed, thanks for pointing that out.

    As for the game itself, I’m more than willing to give it a shot. I just might miss it at first amid all the AAA titles releasing through next year.
