Quantum Theory Now Multi-Platform, Coming Next Spring

Touted by some to be the PS3’s answer to Gears of War, Tecmo Koei’s third person shooter Quantum Theory has today been announced that it’s now heading to the Xbox 360 too.

The game centers around Syd and Fillena who must fight through a “living tower,” the living aspect coming from that the tower is constantly adding and taking away cover positions. Neat.

Full PR after the jump. Game due in Europe Spring 2010 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

QUANTUM THEORYTM GOES MULTIPLATFORM

Tecmo Koei’s Sci-Fi, Action Third-Person Shooter Arrives Spring 2010 on the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360®

Letchworth, Herts.—December 04, 2009—Video game publisher TECMO KOEI EUROPE announced today that QUANTUM THEORY™ will be a multiplatform release on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Both versions are scheduled to arrive in Europe in spring 2010.

QUANTUM THEORY is Tecmo Koei Europe’s newest original IP and the company’s first attempt at the third-person shooter genre.

In addition to single player campaign, QUANTUM THEORY also supports four modes of online multiplayer, complete with voice chat for real-time communication.

STORY

Many years have passed since the world war inflicted catastrophic damage on the human race, leaving only a few survivors. In their new community “Cocoon,” life has been threatened by a black material called Erosion, creating a post-apocalyptic environment. Surviving humans recruit a militia to conquer the Erosion and set out to take down the evil, “Living Tower”. Arriving at the scene is the stalwart warrior Syd, whose only intentions are to destroy the Tower. He meets the beautiful and mysterious Filena as they both ascend to the top in their search for answers. The erosion of the Tower intensifies as the players climb up through the moving landform.
