During the CES Keynote yesterday, it was announced that Unit 13 on the PlayStation Vita will be released across Europe from Wednesday, March 7th, 2012.
Unit 13 offers the first full shooter experience on the portable gaming system. The Unit 13 Global box art was also revealed to the public. Unit 13 is a third-person military shooter that will offer gamers a true, dual-analogue experience. Designed from the ground up for PS Vita by Zipper Interactive, Unit 13 focuses on contemporary mission scenarios with an authentic ‘ripped from the headlines’ feel. Players will choose from six different classes – Infiltrator, Sniper, Soldier, Technician, Point Man, and Support – based on their role and your own playing style.
Players will be tasked with demanding missions in the most hostile regions of the world – to stop terrorists, dictators, gunrunners, warlords and drug traffickers from destabilising the Horn of Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and South Asia.Designed specifically for PS Vita, Unit 13 focuses on portable play, with bite-sized gameplay and a non-linear mission structure that will allow players to jump in at any time, without having to keep up with a story or previous events. Check out the first detailed video walkthrough of a Covert mission.
