SEGA announces Condemned Criminal Origins for the PC

SEGA Europe Ltd and SEGA of America, Inc. announced Condemned: Criminal Origins for the PC. Condemned: Criminal Origins is a suspense-filled, first-person psychological thriller that made its debut with the launch of the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Developed by Monolith Productions, the game allows players to experience an unnatural level of psychological tension as they use their instincts and forensic tools to track down serial killers and bring them to justice. Players will take on the role of Ethan Thomas, an FBI agent, whose pursuit of relentless serial killers leads him through detailed urban environments filled with terrifyingly real sociopaths who lurk on the periphery of humanity.

Condemned: Criminal Origins features photorealistic environments and true-to-life sound effects that transport players directly to the scene of the crime. Gruesome weapons can be fashioned by clever players from the environment: paper-cutter handles, wooden planks and lead pipes ripped from walls can all be used to attack opponents. The enemy AI is highly intelligent as well as enemies don't merely run at the player; they find an appropriately powerful weapon to attack with and then hide in the shadows, waiting for an open opportunity to strike.

Condemned: Criminal Origins for the PC is slated to ship in Spring 2006.
