Product: AREA-51

Conspiracy theorists rejoice! Midway Games has announced that AREA-51 is currently in development for the PC and is scheduled to ship in April 2005 alongside its console counterparts. Developed internally by Midway Studios Austin, the game features intense first-person shooting action, a secret alien base on earth, government cover-ups, and a blockbuster Hollywood cast, proving AREA-51 is a must-have game for players of any system.

?Midway is committed to expanding the breadth of its product line to encompass the PC games sector,? said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. ?Simultaneously introducing all three SKUs will enable us to effectively maximize our marketing efforts and create a high-level of consumer awareness at launch.?

Cast in the lead role is David Duchovny, star of the ultimate conspiracy-theory television show, ?The X-Files,? who lends his instantly recognizable voice to AREA-51?s lead character, Specialist Ethan Cole, a special forces soldier specializing in hazardous materials investigations. Powers Boothe, who currently appears in the HBO mini-series ?Deadwood,? provides the voice of Major Bridges, while shock rocker Marilyn Manson delivers an unforgettable performance as Edgar, the gray alien.
