The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have a new co-op shooter on the horizon, if only a publisher will pick it up. Called “Faith and a .45,” the gritty game is in development by Denmark-based Deadline Games.
Set during the Great Depression, Faith and a .45 tells the story of Luke and Ruby, two outlaw lovers destined to go down in history. Can we say “Bonnie and Clyde,” class? During their violent adventures, the duo battles an enemy force led by a corrupt oil baron who’s out for their blood.
Much like Resistance: Fall of Man was set in an alternate reality where WWII didn’t exist, Faith and a .45 is set during an alternate version of the Great Depression — although in this case, the Depression does exist. WIth this setting, the game covers the duo’s cross-country road trip, which soon turns into a gritty journey with guns, steel-plated vehicles and armor-clad pyromaniacs. Maybe it’s Mad Max set in the Great Depression….
Deadline Games will be presenting Faith and a .45 at the 2008 Game Developers Conference. With any luck, more information about the game will surface then.
