Pirates and planes highlight first two offerings.
1C Company announced today that it has two games in the works for both Xbox 360 and PS3 for release in 2008-2009. These titles include Captain Blood and IL-2: Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, the former of which will mark the first internal console development from the company.
Captain Blood is a pirate-themed action/adventure title inspired by the novels of Rafael Sabatini. It will tell an alternative story of the captain's adventures, in a world of noble robbers set during the golden age of piracy in the Caribbean. Captain Blood is in development for both Xbox 360 and PC.
The second title, IL-2: Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, brings the European publisher's best-selling series to consoles with new graphics, missions, physics and planes. Players will experience large-scale combat during World War II in some of the war's most famous theaters. Gaijin Entertainment is handling development of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, while DiP Interactive is working on the Nintendo DS version and Beatshapers is handling PSP development.
"1C is using cutting-edge technology, including the amazing power of modern consoles, to bring superior games to every market," said Nikolay Baryshnikov, International Sales Director, 1C Company. "Our aim is to bring our games to even more players and expand our vision with cross platform development. We are embracing any new gaming technology that will improve our products including digital downloads, consoles, handheld gaming, Epic's Unreal 3 Engine, NVIDIA PhysX and DirectX 10."
