PR: New Scorpion trailer released

Armchair General

Suffer the agonies and
Catch a trouble but still
Oppose the rotten government’s control,
React to what they do to your life now that
Peace’s been forgotten.
Initiate the resistance,
Outfox those who’s stronger and
Nothing can stop you since you’re Scorpion, the special agent whose destiny is to fight the evil.

Just imagine the world where there’s no place for mercy, compassion, or sympathy. That’s the Earth of 2028. Drastic changes that followed the sudden crisis split the society into several parts – all of them opposing each other. You are offered to wear the shoes of a special agent who has to penetrate the Zenith Corporation that breeds monsters, initiates killings and, actually, rules the world.


There’s a new trailer available to show you more of these dark and somber surroundings, ugly zombies and dangerous dungeons you’ll need to go through. The trailer can be downloaded at Scorpion’s webpage:

Genre: FPS
Platform: PC
Publisher: Akella
Developer: B-Cool Interactive
Release date: Q2 2008

In early 2030s ruins of unknown origin were discovered in Sudan. Several artifacts possibly of alien nature were quickly revealed and soon major dig has started. But few months of work as well as the bulk of the dig team were lost to the underground explosion followed by contamination of the region. To prevent diseases from spreading a series of nuclear strikes were made to completely annihilate the site. These events have caused major resonance and soon a treaty limiting the usage of dangerous technologies and weapon systems was signed between the FCAs and UNO. As a result the International Committee of Technology and Warfare Supervision (ICTS) with its own military and intelligence units, was created.

Same time few survivors of Sudan Incident emerged as founders of newly formed Zenith Corporation. This institution with HQ in Zagreb FCA quickly established itself as a notorious player on weapon, pharmaceutics and IT markets. But in 2028 several instances of Zenith weapon systems together with samples of unidentified biological weapons were discovered during the liquidation of the extremists’ Albanian group in Kosovo.

ICTS immediately started investigation. It was planned to infiltrate Zenith as a customer with clear ties to one of the terrorists’ organization and get a proof of its illegal activity. One of the best ICTS field agents, codename Scorpion, has been assigned to this mission…
