A new first-person shooter exclusive to the Nintendo Wii U, Killer Freaks from Outer Space, will ship during the new handheld’s launch window in 2012, Ubisoft announced today. In the game, vicious and insane hordes of Killer Freaks from Outer Space have invaded the planet. As one of the world’s last survivors, the player must stalk the Killer Freaks across the globe — killing each and every one of them — to determine who will rule the earth, humans or Killer Freaks.
Although details about the game are basically non-existent, Ubisoft did promise that Killer Freaks from Outer Space will provide “a whole new take on the FPS genre.”
“When we realized the potential of what Nintendo was offering by creating a tactile controller, we were off and running immediately,” said Xavier Poix, managing director of Ubisoft’s France studios. “Having that extra screen in the hand of the player allows us boundless innovation that ultimately gives the player a more beautiful game, a faster game interface, a personalized game experience, and so much more.”
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot echoed the sentiment, saying “Killer Freaks will make the most of all the fantastic capabilities of the Wii U and provide hardcore players with a gaming experience like no other they have seen or played before.”
More information will undoubtedly be released soon, and perhaps we’ll get some info during our Ubisoft E3 2011 booth tour later today.
