Turning Point Fall Of Liberty uses this 'what if' idea to create a fast-paced action/FPS game set in an alternate history where Winston Churchill is killed in 1931, England surrenders to Hitler in 1940, Pearl Harbor is never attacked by the Japanese, and America is not drawn into the war until the German Wehrmacht (war machine) lands on the U.S. east coast in 1953.
Delivering a fresh perspective to the WWII genre through an alternate timeline and advanced weaponry, Turning Point Fall of Liberty offers a very personal battle for the player: as a civilian in these new battlegrounds, it's time to fight afresh against the world's most notorious war machine.
Turning Point Fall of Liberty sees history take a catastrophic turn for the worse: the game opens as Nazi forces launch a decimating attack on the gateway of the United States eastern coast – New York.
Nazi battleships quickly take the harbour, monstrous Zeppelins fill the skies, jet aircraft execute bombing runs and, as armed paratroopers descend on to the streets, the city is taken block by block. As New York falls and the enemy set their sights on Washington D.C., Turning Point: Fall of Liberty becomes a very personal battle for players.
Taking the role of Dan Carson – a reluctant New York City construction worker turned resistance fighter, gamers must survive the initial invasion before regrouping with other resistance members to fight back. Always outmanned and outgunned, players must use a handful of guerrilla tactics and hand to hand grappling combat as they attempt to stop the world’s most notorious war machine.
Developed by U.S. studio Spark Unlimited, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty is not another typical WWII game set in the European or Pacific theatres. It’s set to deliver an explosive action/FPS experience in a world where famous locations and landmarks appear startlingly different under Nazi occupation.
With such a unique story at its core, Turning Point: Fall of Liberty's visuals are also set to strike a chord with players. Everything from the historic landmarks over run by Nazi forces, to the innovative use of the camera and the new hand-to-hand combat grappling system, to the technologically advanced German weapons and vehicles will consistently remind gamers that this is a different WWII experience than they're used to.
Turning Point Fall of Liberty is due for launch in Q4 2007.
