The game formerly known as Deus Ex: Clan Wars has gone gold. Today, Eidos Interactive announced that its sci-fi squad shooter Project: Snowblind has stormed the factory. Rated T for Teen, the game is scheduled for release on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 on February 23 for $49.99. Today's announcement did not mention the PC version, also scheduled for a February 23 ship date, which will retail for $39.99.
Originally conceived as a spin-off from the Deus Ex series, Project: Snowblind is set in a similarly futuristic world. Players assume the role of 2nd Lt. Nathan Frost, a solider in the Liberty Coalition, an international army. Bearing an array of high-tech weapons and cybernetic enhancements, Frost and several comrades are dropped into Hong Kong to help quell a rogue army from threatening the world with a weapon of mass destruction. When the mission goes wrong, they find themselves trapped behind enemy lines, and they have to fight their way out.
