Deep Black is an all-new underwater third-person shooter in development by Russian developer “Biart Studio” and publisher 505 Games. It will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in Q1 2011.

The unique underwater setting of Deep Black combines action-packed battles with an immersive story line that blends science-fiction, espionage and bio-terror. Realistic underwater physics add intensity to this third-person action thriller.

With the majority of the gameplay taking place below the water’s surface, action-adventure fans will need to master new skills to fight hostile enemies and infiltrate enemy bases. Players will take to the murky depths armed with equipment ranging from specialized underwater jet packs with integrated harpoons, mini submersibles and other high-tech equipment to battle their submerged enemies.

Sounds like a pretty interesting premise. We’ll have to see how the final game comes out. A trailer has yet to be released.
