Deadfall Adventures Gameplay Trailers From E3

Posted on June 18, 2013 by Joshua Rust

Announced earlier this year by Farm 51 & Nordic Games was Deadfall Adventures. To put this game into perspective…think of Lara Croft meets Indiana Jones.  Played in the first person perspective, Deadfall Adventures will take you to exotic places all across the world such as the ancient Mayan ruins, Egypt, and even the Arctic. Starring as James Lee Quatermain, great grandson of legendary Allan Quatermain, players will journey through the 1930’s in search of fame and treasure – scratch that, just treasure.

Boasting “fast paced action of intense gun battles with adventure gameplay that rewards players for exploring, solving puzzles and by taking the road less traveled,” Deadfall Adventures has great potential to be one of the “sleeper” hits of this year.

If you missed out on the E3 gameplay trailers and would like to see what Deadfall Adventures is all about, keep reading after the jump!Read More
