Forget the little green men. BlackSite: Area 51 is much more serious than all that.
Everyone has a pet theory about what goes on out at Groom Lake, otherwise known as Area 51, the "secret" military facility located about 90 miles north of Las Vegas. Is it just a test site for prototype aircraft? Or is it where the government hides all the crazy alien technology that it harvested from the Roswell UFO crash? You know, we wouldn't have fiber optics, floor-cleaning robots, or the iPhone without reverse engineering all that alien technology. Midway's Austin studio is currently working on a new first-person shooter that, at least partially, takes place in and around Area 51. And it sounds like it's taking a much more serious approach to the subject matter that plays off of some of man's worst fears while also offering a fast-paced adventure with lots of big, loud weapons.
The demo shown at Midway's recent press event was a very short taste of a level based on Rachael, Nevada, the town closest to the Area 51 facility.
