It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good sci-fi flick and it looks like Battle: Los Angeles could cure that itch. Developer/publisher Konami sees some potential in the franchise as well and so they’ve teamed up with developer Saber Interactive to create a first person shooter based on the movie. While the movie hits theaters next Friday, the game will release sometime next month for the PC, Xbox360 (via XBL) and the PS3 (via PSN).

Developed by Saber Interactive and powered by the Saber 3D Engine, Battle: Los Angeles is a high-end fast and frantic first-person shooter game that will take players through a single player campaign that mirrors the upcoming feature film. Players will assume the role of a Marine fighting against a worldwide alien invasion that has the city of Los Angeles as the major battleground and focal point for the game. Players will battle unique and varied enemies, using an arsenal of weapons throughout the game like an assault rifle, sniper rifle, rocket launcher, frag grenades, and a turret gun as they navigate the streets of Los Angeles avoiding fierce and relentless attacks.

Off we go to our deaths then

Aside from high-caliber fire fighting combat, destructible environments have been included using the Havok Destruction Module, which will allow players to destroy scaffolding structures, vehicles and overpasses to eliminate enemy forces. With unlockable content, trophy support, and 5.1 surround sound, Battle: Los Angeles will pull players deep into the heart of the battle to save mankind.

So like any of the gazillion generic sci-fi shooters, then?
