5th Cell, the developer behind quirky DS title Scribblenauts, is turning its hand to the third-person shooter, exclusively on the Xbox Live Arcade with Hybrid. "Innovation" is the watchword for Hybrid according to Jeremiah Slaczka, Creative Director & CEO at 5th Cell, who takes you through the core mechanics of the game in this new gameplay trailer.
Hybrid's main draw is its seamless movement, jetpacking from place to place while only ever touching the ground to get behind cover. This means that you can fight on the walls or ceiling without any impediment whatsoever. There's also a killstreak system where one kill gives you the Stalker drone to fight alongside you, while three and five kills grants you the Warbringer drone and the Preyon heatseeking missile respectively.
Running on a heavily modified version of Valve's Source engine, Hybrid certainly looks interesting. And there's a lot more info about the game in the video that you can check out below. Hybrid will be coming to XBLA in summer 2012. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
