[ October 1st 2001 ]

Core Design's latest rust-encrusted multi-player adventure Project Eden has been rescheduled for release and will now make its commercial debut on PC and Playstation 2 October 19th 2001.

Designed by the team that created the original Tomb Raider, Project Eden is a squad-based action/adventure featuring strategic puzzle solving, tactical use of equipment and innovative character interaction. The player may switch instantly between 1st and 3rd person viewpoints; the 1st person viewpoint allows the character to see torso and feet as well as a real-time shadow.

BACKGROUND STORY

Due to severe overpopulation, the planet Earth’s diameter is increasing with the growth of towering mega-cities, each inhabited by millions of humans. Buildings are growing ever-upwards, interconnected with a thick web of roads, walkways and service channels. In these giant human hives, only the affluent may feel the rays of the sun and breathe the cleaner air.

Descending thousands of feet through the echelons, conditions steadily decline to slum level. The inhabitants of these squalid areas barely glimpse the murky sunlight that filters through the dense infrastructure above. And below the slums lie even more repugnant conditions... an underworld occupied by criminals, cultists, the wretched and deranged. Assumed derelict, the very lowest of these areas is visited only by structural engineering teams when foundations require strengthening - in order to accommodate yet further elevations.

It is within one such city that Project Eden is set. The player(s) controls a team of 4 members of the UPA (Urban Protection Agency) - an elite force which deals with serious disturbances within the city. The team is initially called in to investigate problems at the ‘Real Meat’ factory, in which all the equipment has started to simultaneously malfunction. Technicians sent to repair the machinery have gone missing without explanation

Here begins The UPA’s sinister trail of inquiry...
