Quantum Theory is an upcoming third-person shooter video game developed by Team Tachyon and published by Tecmo. The game is set for a release in the summer of 2010 in Japan and will be released on November 16, 2010 in North America and EU.
The game centers around two characters named Syd and Fillena who must fight through a "living tower." The game will feature a cover system. A unique twist to the cover system however is that the tower is "living" and thus constantly adding and taking away ideal cover locations.
Many years have passed since the world war inflicted catastrophic damage on the human race, leaving only a few survivors. In their new community "Cocoon," life has been threatened by a black material called Erosion, creating a post-apocalyptic environment. Surviving humans recruit a militia to conquer the Erosion and set out to take down the evil, "Living Tower". Arriving at the scene is the stalwart warrior Syd, whose only intentions are to destroy the Tower. He meets the beautiful and mysterious Fillena as they both ascend to the top in their search for answers. The erosion of the Tower intensifies as the players climb up through the moving landform.
PlayStation: The Official Magazine calls "Quantum Theory’s two-character approach - buff fighter Syd and more agile female Fillena - and organic fantasy world...entirely unique."
