Recently I got the chance to speak with Rob Yescombe from Free Radical, Screenwriter on the hot new PS 3 Shooter Haze. I got the chance to play an early version of the game at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, and Rob was kind enough to take the time to update me on what gamers can look forward to from this hot new titles.
GVK: What is the background and setting for the game?
RY: Haze is set in 2048. Theres a war going on in a region of South America where a bunch of evil skanky-ass malevolent rebels called The Promise Hand are trying to overthrow the government. Thankfully, a private military company (PMC) called Mantel Global industries is sending in its forces to iron things out. Now, mantel is a media-savvy company, and they dont want the bad press of one of their soldiers getting killed or hurt. So, they give all their soldiers a miracle nutritional supplement called Nectar. It makes the troops tougher, smart and faster. Basically everything they want and need to be on a battlefield.
