Rebellion have posted a video that suggests their next game will be based on a character or story from the home of Judge Dredd, 2000 AD.
The 2000 AD link comes from the less than subtle name the video has been posted under, Rebellion2000ad, and if you scan the QR code embedded in the trailer above it takes you to a website which begins with the URL “2000ADOnline”, although that’s clearly just a campaign management URL.
“One man is utterly alone amidst the chaos of war. But there are worse things to fear than bombs and bullets here,” hints the YouTube page, “Debuting 14th February 2013, PC fans will soon get the chance to discover for themselves just what is in store for those brave enough to venture into the ‘Totraum’.Heil Gotterdammerung!”
It looks like the game could be based on Fiends Of The Eastern Front, one of the lesser known 2000 AD stories.
“A diary found with an unearthed skeleton casts new light on a lost piece of history from World War II. It belongs to a young German soldier who was stationed on the Eastern Front alongside a group of Romanian soldiers who always fought at night. Their true nature is soon revealed and when they change sides all Hell breaks loose,” says Wikipedia.
Rebellion Developments own 2000 AD having bought the franchise back in 2000.
