Sega Announces Space Siege

The previously announced untitled RPG project from Gas Powered Games has been revealed today as Sega lifts the curtain on Space Siege. As a spiritual successor of sorts to GPG’s acclaimed Dungeon Siege franchise, Space Siege is a sci-fi action-RPG featuring a gripping storyline, intense action and in-depth character development.

In Space Siege, players will take on the role of a cybernetics engineer named Seth Walker on a mission to save humanity after a mysterious alien race attacks Earth and leaves the human race on the brink of extermination. Over the course of the game, players will have the choice to sacrifice parts of Seth’s humanity in exchange for powerful cybernetic enhancements or forgo the use of these upgrades to keep Seth’s humanity intact. Whichever path the player chooses will directly impact how characters interact with Seth and how the story unfolds. On top of the story campaign, a co-op multiplayer mode with a different mission structure will be available for upwards of four players to enjoy.

“Chris Taylor and his talented team at Gas Powered Games are recognized as leading innovators in the industry,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. “Space Siege promises to be a compelling and innovative successor to the very popular Dungeon Siege franchise.”

Space Siege is slated to launch for the PC in North America and Europe sometime in Q1 2008. Back with more as new info surfaces…
