Paintball Game Announced For Later This Year
Activision Publishing announces the upcoming release of NPPL Championship Paintball 2009

October 17, 2008 - Load up the hopper, lower the mask, and take cover for the most realistic next-generation paintball game ever as Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announces NPPL (National Professional Paintball League) Championship Paintball 2009. This officially licensed title is coming in late 2008 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems, and Wii™.

"We appreciate the fact that the bar has been raised with extreme sports games, and that paintball enthusiasts demand an obsessive attention to detail. Our goal has been to over-deliver in a way that pleases both camps," said Shawn Walker, NPPL President. "It's been a long wait for next-gen paintball experience, but the work on NPPL Championship Paintball 2009 has paid off and the game is a huge step forward for the genre and the sport."

NPPL Championship Paintball 2009 will feature multiple game modes, officially-licensed gear, and authentic tournament locations and field layouts from the NPPL, the Millennium European Paintball Series, and the XPSL. Players can perfect their skills as they progress from a rookie to pro in career mode and take on the best paintball teams in the world, or get online for an adrenaline rush of intense, cutthroat multiplayer action.

"NPPL Championship Paintball 2009 captures the raw intensity of hardcore paintball in this new breed of extreme sports / first person action entertainment," Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. "The game represents our ongoing commitment to the sport and our goal to create the most realistic, competitive experience possible."

With in-depth design consultation by Team Dynasty and Bob Long, the title will make players feel like they are on the field with motion-captured player movements such as slides, dives, and snapping and leading-edge ballistics that affect the paintballs' trajectory. The game will also feature unique woodsball-based gameplay modes.

Ryan Greenspan of the world champion San Diego Dynasty paintball team said, "We've gotten to play the game quite a few times along the way, and it is definitely the best paintball game we've ever played. The graphics are amazing, it's lots of fun, and super realistic. The beautiful thing is that people are going have an absolute blast playing it from the most hardcore paintball junkies to those who might never have even tried the sport. The breadth of its appeal is huge."

the vice looks good all rendered and sexie. i couldnt find anything more than this picture and even activision doesnt have the game listed on the site yet. soon though.... it looks pretty polished and is in playing condition. they prolly just need to nail down the debugging and polish the sponsors' nobs a little more.

im going to be brutally honest. im glad they are putting out a paintball game, but in a world of gears of wars and metal gear solids, its going to be hard to get a following much past the people who already play the sport.

i want to see it in action and moving. im also hoping the ai is something to write home about. i imagine its going to be a pretty hard thing to recreate.

oh and please please please leave the 'cheating' aspect out of this one. most down syndrome game feature ever.
