And here is an excerpt from Codemasters’ press release providing an excellent preview of the game’s story and gameplay. Color me intrigued…

Dealing with a turning point in time, one that begins with Churchill being killed in a car accident that ultimately leads to the Axis invasion of the U.S, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty‘s story also deals with the ‘turning point’ for the game’s central character, Dan Carson. The game opens with Carson, a New York City construction worker, high up on the girders of a partially built skyscraper in downtown Manhattan as he bares witness to the initial invasion; battleships breaching New York harbor, and the skies filled with Zeppelins, assault blimps, jet aircraft and German paratroopers.

Turning Point: Fall of Liberty gives players a unique sense of empowerment as they take the role of Carson, a civilian caught in the middle of this new battleground. As a man on his own, with no immediate plan for escape and no weapons other than those that can be scavenged, Carson runs for his life, trapped in New York City under a devastating attack from advanced Nazi military technology and firepower.

Climbing and leaping from level to level, Carson attempts to escape the building and make his way down to the ground before it’s too late. As German paratroopers descend onto the structure, Carson must deal with them as best he can in hand-to-hand combat. During these sequences, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty‘s unique grappling system will play out from a third-person viewpoint, showcasing the brutal tactics Carson will have to employ to stay alive – some of them taking advantage of the surrounding environment.

As Turning Point: Fall of Liberty‘s opening sequence unfolds, Carson eventually reaches the relative cover of street level and reluctantly joins forces with the U.S. resistance – Carson’s own ‘turning point’ as he becomes part of the underground defense initiative. From here, in this dramatically changed WWII experience, players will fight on the other side of war – one where they’re not part of the invading superpower’s army, but instead as a resisting force on their home turf and reliant on wit and guerrilla tactics to survive.
