A playable level of the upcoming first person shooter from Atari is now available to download.

The game’s fact sheet provides us with the background story,

Based in the near future, TimeShift tells the story of renowned test pilot Colonel Michael Swift, who has been asked by the US Government to test two of the most significant inventions of the century – a time-control device called the Quantum Suit and a time machine called the Chronomicon. During the experiment Swift is briefly sent back in time to 1911 to plant an experimental probe. Upon his return to the present, the world has changed beyond all recognition, and his knowledge of this timeshift has made him an enemy of the state. Swift is now both on the run and on a mission to set time straight once again.

In Timeshift players have the ability to slow, stop, and reverse time while your character moves around the gameworld in real-time.
