The critically acclaimed cell-shaded FPS is back!
First released back in 2003, XIII was one of the first games of its kind. A cell-shaded tour de force with comic book styling, right down to the speech bubbles accompanying dialogue, the visual “BAOOM” emanating from explosions, and “Aaaargh!” as you take down your foes.
The new game engine looks superb, and for anyone wanting to revisit this classic, it’s the perfect remedy for ‘rose-tinted glasses syndrome’.
About the Story of XIII:
Who are you?
The country is still in shock after President Sheridan’s assassination.
You wake up injured and with amnesia on the shore of an east coast beach. The only clues about your identity are the number XIII tattooed on your collarbone and the key to a locker. Despite the memory loss, you realize not everything has been forgotten as you seem to have amazing reflexes comparable to a well-trained government agent. You will soon be on your way to uncover your past, discovering in the process your role in the murder of the US president and unveiling the most astonishing conspiracy in the country’s history.
Play as “XIII” – a man who has no memory about his identity – and try to find out the truth regarding the set-up of a major conspiracy. Follow XIII in his search for his identity through a thrilling solo campaign and brutal local multiplayer battles!
