Black Powder Red Earth Announced  by Craig D at 20:29

Echelon Software today announced Black Powder Red Earth, a multiplayer only PC first person shooter with social networking and a virtual marketplace built in, a slightly crazy combination of modern PC technologies if you ask me, but maybe it will work. The game itself is set on Mars in 2043.

"Rather than build an elaborate 3D world space, BPRE uses the same framework commonly found on the Web for social networking. Players are already used to creating and managing online identities on sites like Myspace and Orkut. They are also buying and selling real and virtual products on sites like Ebay, iTunes and Amazon. By using these familiar tools, BPRE keeps the learning curve as flat as possible," says Jon Chang, president of Echelon. "Best of all, unbinding these activities from the game executable gives players access to the world of BPRE either from inside the game or from the outside via any Web-enabled device. Persistence is the real world, anytime the players want it."
