Not too long ago, we brought you news that UFO Interactive and Tragnarion were planning on bringing the popular third person shooter Scourge: Outbreak to the Xbox Live Arcade and have completely overhauled the original, with new features such as a four player co-op mode, achievements, and more hitting the platform.
Today, it is time to take a closer look as a new trailer has been released, detailing one of your squadmates known as Victor “Stonewall” Dantrix.
Here are some details on this Echo Squad leader:
A former US Ranger and sixth generation Army Officer, Victor “Stonewall” Dantrix has his crosshairs on the Nogari Corporation for a research experiment gone wrong. Compelled by the promise of having his named cleared once and for all, Stonewall was framed for a catastrophic airstrike “cleansing,” which left him as the only survivor out of hundreds. Dishonorably discharged and disgraced, Stonewall was sentenced to execution only to escape for a life on the run. Now he must keep Echo Squad together and eliminate Nogari.
Specializing in mid-range assault and tactical combat, Stonewall can take a beating and easily pay one back in double. While he may not be a tank like Mass, or nimble like Amp, Stonewall is 100% mission-oriented and determined to eliminate enemies efficiently. His Zen-like balance of recoil control and accuracy gives him a keen trigger finger, particularly when equipped with an assault rifle. Naturally, Stonewall is perfect for close combat situations. Never giving an inch of ground, his Ambrosia Suit’s Static Shield locks into place, allowing Echo Squad to return fire and decimate enemies from safety. Additionally, Stonewall’s Static Shockwave will let Nogari know he means business. Once he’s in range, he makes sure nobody gets away.
For just 800 points, I would say Scourge looks like it will fit right in on the Xbox Live Arcade and seems to be quite refreshing for the service due to the lack of third-person shooters on the service. Scourge: Outbreak launches on July 3rd, but you can check out the shiny new trailer down below.
