Midway sends word that the website for the next Area 51 installment has gone live.

Midway Games today announced the official AREA 51? Web site (www.area51-game.com) is now live. Exploding with fresh content, FPS fans and conspiracy theorists alike can now access an extensive amount of screenshots, video featurettes, trailers, character bios and much more. AREA 51 is scheduled to ship for the PlayStation?2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox? videogame system from Microsoft and PC on April 25, 2005.

Area 51 is the only action-packed 1st person shooter set in the U.S. government?s most secret and secure military facility. The U.S. Army has received a distress signal from Area 51 where a viral outbreak has just shut down the research facility and the automated quarantine procedures have locked all scientific and military personnel inside. A small Special Forces unit led by Specialist Ethan Cole of the HAZMAT (hazardous materials) Division is sent to investigate. As Cole, players will delve into five massive levels within the confines of Area 51, discovering a deadly mutagenic side effect of the virus that controls the minds of those infected, as well as an ancient alien colony buried beneath the facility. With a multitude of human and alien weapons, players must explore chilling conspiracies such as the extraterrestrial crash at Roswell and the faked lunar landing, in order to solve the enigma of Area 51 before the viral mutagen is re! leased and irrevocably mutates all life on Earth. Area 51 will be online supporting 16 players or both the PlayStation?2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox? video game system from Microsoft.
They've also provided a load of screenshots: I've picked the best 12 for the gallery.
