News – Ubisoft announces Killer Freaks From Outer Space

Ubisoft has announced an exclusive FPS for Nintendo’s new Wii U console. It’s called Killer Freaks From Outer Space and is described as an arcade style, 4 player coop shooter.

The story sees alien ships crashing into earth, of which contain the titular freaks from outer space. It’s up to you to thwart the invasion, in a story which is set in London and seems to be heavily inspired by B Movies.

You’ll move your view around with the controller’s gyroscope, while multiplayer has one player controlling it like an ordinary FPS (demoed with a Classic Controller), and the other uses the Wii U controller to command freaks, in what sounds to be similar to a tower defence game. Interesting.

Killer Freaks From Outer Space will be released in 2012. Could it be a Wii U launch title? Well, only time will tell.
