I was not sure what platform to put this under. Technically I suppose you could play it on the consoles and even the handhelds through their browsers. But it's not exactly clear. So let's just call it news and leave it at that. GarageGames is doing something unheard of. They are stuffing a full on 3-D first person shooter into a browser. OK maybe it's not unheard of but if it works it could be the new way to game. Who needs cross-platform compatibility when everyone can play a game in a browser. 

This is a logical extension of the 'stream a game' trend that has been emerging for some time. 

 After months of rumors and a recent video leak on the web, GarageGames today announced initial details for Fallen Empire: Legions, a first person shooter for the recently announced 3D online game platform, InstantAction.com.

Tim Aste, project director for Fallen Empire: Legions said “The game design allows for us to create a unique experience that brings FPS gaming back to its roots. In terms of graphics and gameplay it will set a new benchmark of what the future of gaming will be on the web.”

 "Fallen Empire: Legions will be InstantAction's most advanced example... Marrying core games with the accessibility and social power of the web is a huge step forward in the industry, and I personally can't wait for this game to be released so I can hop on and start playing everyone."said Josh Williams, CEO of GarageGames.

Developed internally by GarageGames, Fallen Empire: Legions combines distinctive freedom of movement with fast paced first-person combat to create strategic, team-oriented gameplay. The InstantAction platform has allowed Fallen Empire: Legions to leverage the best of what the web has to offer, creating an evolving experience for players that can constantly be improved upon. This is first-person warfare at its fastest and finest!

Well I for one am interested in seeing this in action. Though I have to ask, what kind of frame rate will we get out of it, will we be able to full screen the game or will we constantly have a browser window frame and what technology is it based on? Well I guess I better get to emailing now.
