Time Crisis: Razing Storm is an upcoming 2010 light gun rail shooter video game. It is a spin-off of the Namco's Time Crisis series published by Namco exclusively for the PlayStation 3 using the PlayStation Move controller. The game also includes the arcade version of Time Crisis 4 updated for use with the PlayStation Move. The game is the first in the series to feature online multiplayer and will be one of the launch titles for the PlayStation Move for release in September 2010. It is a port of the arcade game Razing Storm.
Players (Alpha Squad) are part of an elite task force known as S.C.A.R. (Strategic Combat and Rescue) sent by the United States to South America to capture the mastermind who has orchestrated an attack on the United States together with several international military organizations.
The game will utilize the PlayStation Move for precise aiming while gameplay retains the traditional arcade rail shooter style of the series as players must take down a terrorist threat. Much like Crisis Zone, the game will boast fully destructible environments as well as new futuristic weapons such as cluster shots, rocket launchers and sniper rifles.
