Although Halo 2?s release date is edging closer, Wideload Games, founded by Alex Seropian and fellow ex-Bungie employees, has today revealed a new FPS based on the original Halo engine ? Rebel Without a Pulse. Taking charge of a comedy zombie called Stubbs, you?ll be wandering assorted environments shooting at stuff and then eating your victims? brains out, possessing them in the process.

It sounds quite delightful, and with the sterling Halo engine behind it, it could well be rather impressive when it hits Xbox, PC and Mac next summer. With so many moodier FPS in the pipeline, this light-hearted touch on the genre could make a welcome change.

We?ll bring you more on this one as it takes shape. In the meantime, here?s a trio of screens.

Chances to eat brains are small enough anyway. We've been vampires but rarely zombies, so maybe the are onto something. Let's hope it doesn't take us 2 hours to shuffle from one side of the room to the other, after an enemy.

Yeah I think they are onto something a little different from the norm and it should be fun. And I agree with the slow zombie shuffle thing maybe a problem, but then again we could be like those super zombies in resident evil that are much quicker then their counterparts. Or maybe they could just give us jetpacks to fly around with.
