They're back, BlackSite: Area 51 is 360 bound [update 1]

Midway Studios just confirmed that their "aliens gone wild" game BlackSite: Area 51 will be coming to the Xbox 360 this summer. Not only did they make that announcement, but they also released a few new screenshots, a trailer, and game details. BlackSite: Area 51 looks to be going with a more realistic and modern approach to the Area 51 series, something we're thinking fans will enjoy. Midway also announced a few gameplay tidbits and revealed the multiplayer modes including Death Match, Team Death Match, Capture the Flag, and Human vs Reborn. Jump into the Hummer and get on the chain-gun soldier ... we're taking back our base! Video and screenshots after the jump.

Update 1: Fixed some grammar issues.

3. I'll pay attention to this game once they've announced they signed David Duchovny again.

4. "alien's gone wild"

Wait, so theres only one alien? Thatll make for a boring game.

5. Looks fine. Who is doing voices in this one?...The first one had some good voice overs..maybe this one will too? They should bring back Marilyn Manson!..For those that dont know he was Edgar in the first one.

6. ...before you blast someone for checking their apostrophes, make sure you don't make a mistake with one in your own post.

7. Eddie,

The irony was intentional. Yes, I dropped two apostrophes that should have been present and added two that should not have been.

I didn't mean to blast. Only to poke fun. Sorry, Dustin... no offense meant...

8. Hey guys btw this is a remake of the shooter for arcades. Remember the one where you had to hold a gun up to the screen. It was a bit of humor thrown in.
