With a North American release date coming in the next couple of months, PS3 owners have something else to look forward to if they choose to pre-order Haze. If it's pre-ordered directly from Ubisoft, the publisher will be including a limited edition drug syringe containing "nectar".
Not only will those who pre-order the game receive this bonus drug paraphenalia, they also will have the game shipped out on day one of its release. The drug-filled syringe is actually a pen but gives the impression of being a syringe full of "nectar" which highly influences the gameplay in Haze.
The "nectar" found in the game is a performance-enhancing pharmaceutical drug that gives the user better speed, accuracy and strength. As part of the story, the drug is secretly being used to control the minds of soldiers. Nectar can control what the soldier sees when administered and is a sort of hallucinogenic drug. It can make the soldiers see only the enemies and cut out the destruction and death around them.
Haze is a first-person shooter video game developed by Free Radical Design and is published by Ubisoft exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Haze is being set to release for the first quarter of 2008.
