PAN Interactive have announced that they are to unveil Intergalactic Bounty Hunter for the PC, at E3 later this month.

The game is the first part in a trilogy, and is being produced in an episodic manner. This new type of game structure, similar to episodes in a television series, gives PAN the freedom to utilise new distribution techniques for the sequels.

"The cinematic tone and strong storyline is designed to appeal to a broader audience," says PAN's CEO, Henrik Eklund. "The episodic game play is directly inspired by the kind of screenplays you tend to find in Sci-Fi movies - strong believable characters, prologues, cliffhangers, and so forth. The game has a rich 1950's style ambience that pays homage to retro Sci-Fi classics."

Gameplay involves playing as the top agent of the Intergalactic Order of the Bounty Hunter, an elite paramilitary force that operates above the laws of the Quad Galaxy Intergalactic Alliance. As the key agent of IOBH, you are empowered by warrants issued by the Federation who authorise you to use whatever means necessary to bring fugitive Galactic criminals to justice.

On a routine fugitive retrieval mission your spaceship is secretly boarded. Out of nowhere you are attacked and left unconscious, and suddenly your dangerous cargo of prisoners is set free. You awake, startled and confused. You find yourself in the custody of the ominous GPS.

You must clear your name. By re-capturing the escaped fugitives and reconstructing the events on your ship from their memory fragments you can discover who set you up. Above all, you must protect the secrets of the IOBH's power by uncovering the identities of those who apparently seek to destroy the foundation of Law enforcement in the Quad Galactic Alliance

Intergalactic Bounty Hunter is due for worldwide release on September 29th for the PC, and should be an instant hit with anyone who likes sci-fi action adventures.
