This is probably just going to be another Left 4 Dead clone, in a long, long line of Left 4 Dead clones (but with cars this time!) but with John Carpenter attached in some capacity, I can't help but be at least curious. I really really really really really hope we get a new Carpenter score out of this, at the very least.

QuoteIn the near future, an experimental attempt to harness the power of the Earth's core ends in a terrifying disaster: the release of the Sludge God. This eldritch abomination begins terraforming the area, turning soil to scum and the living... to undead monsters! However, the genius behind the experiment has a plan to make things right. All he needs is a team of competent, highly-trained mercenaries to get the job done. Unfortunately, those are all too expensive. Which is why he's hired...

The Toxic Commandos!

Take control of one of the commandos, team up with your friends and send the Sludge God and its horde of things-that-should-never-be back to the underworld. Choose the class that matches your playstyle, pile into your favorite ride, and unload an array of gunfire, grenades, special abilities, and freaking katanas as you save the planet.

So if you're the kind of person who likes:

- Buddy-movie vibes and the over-the-top humor, action, and horror of classic 80s cinema, inspired by the legendary John Carpenter

- Teaming up with friends to face down hordes of monsters who want to eat your face

- An explosive cocktail of visceral FPS action and apocalyptic environments

- Upgrading your skills and testing new abilities against increasingly hardcore challenges

- Saving the planet against impossible odds

Then now's your time to go commando!

Look, it's hard not to be intrigued by something called a "Sludge God" that lives in the center of the Earth.

And here's a quote from Carpenter:

Quote"It's exciting to be collaborating on a new video game with Focus and Saber [...] Look, I really like shooting zombies. They keep telling me that they're called 'the infected.' Please. They're ghouls, dude. They blow up real good and there are a ton of them. People are going to love this game."

I would like the soundbite of him saying the word "Ghouls," please and thank you.

I really want this to be good, though the trailer definitely gave me some Back 4 Blood vibes (mostly the bland countryside environments), which was decent, but not the "Left 4 Dead 3" it wanted to be.

I'm a fan of these kinds of games though and I'm definitely a fan of John Carpenter, so I'm crossing my fingers it'll be a winner.
