All right class, what is the first rule of shooters? Stay behind those low walls? Namco Bandai explains why that strategy may not work anymore.
Inversion is an upcoming third-person shooter where the player wields the power of gravity. If an enemy is hiding behind a wall, just shoot some low gravity their way and they float above their cover. Or maybe someone is shooting at you from a decrepit tower. Turn on a little extra gravity and the structure collapses under its own weight.
As fun as it looks to mess with your enemies’ gravity, what really turns the genre on its head is the wall walking. Bringing the walls and ceiling into play as battlegrounds looks frenzied and fun. The enemies are literally all around you.
Inversion will be released February 2012 for Xbox 360 and PS3. Be sure to check out Kotaku’s full impressions.
