Bloody Good Time announced

Bloody Good Time will be published by Ubisoft and is being developed by Outerlight.

Ubisoft has announced a new multiplayer shooter for PC and Xbox 360, Bloody Good Time, which is being developed by Outerlight Studios.

Bloody Good Time is being built on Valve's Source Engine, just like Outerlight's previous game, The Ship and is set to be released over Xbox Live Arcade and Steam.

Bloody Good Time is a multiplayer only game, with up to eight players cast as different B-movie archetypes, each competing for a role in an upcoming horror film. Levels are based on movie sets, with props being used as weapons. Players will be able to kill each other with everything from frying pans and flamethrowers to exploding rats.

There'll be four game modes on offer, from simple deathmatch through to a Ship inspired Revenge mode where players have to murder specific targets while avoiding others.

Bloody Good Time is set for a Q4 2010 release, so we'll bring you more details as they emerge.

Could be entertaining and humorous.
Only upto 8 players though? I think I would like to see more.

"Ubisoft has announced a new multiplayer shooter for PC and Xbox 360"

I almost stopped reading there.

Sounds pretty cool and I'm actually surprised that the developer is still around, considering that apparently The Ship had abysmal sales. I just hope it has enough gameplay to really warrant its asking price, though. Selling me a multiplayer-only game these days is a doubly-hard proposition as well, since there are just so many great games out there with both good campaigns and quality online modes. I recently bought Plain Sight and barely touched it despite what I know is a solid online mode, simply because I've got my time split between so many other titles already.

Hmm could be good, I loved the free version of The Ship on Valve's previous engine. We will just have to wait and see.
