Time Is The Ultimate Weapon.

Set in the near future, TimeShift from Saber Interactive will take the first-person genre to an entirely different dimension marked by erratic time and unrelenting action. TimeShift transports gamers to a strange yet familiar world where individual rights have been eradicated and a tyrannical leader rules ruthlessly with an iron fist.

Gamers assume the role of renowned and recently retired test pilot Colonel Michael Swift, who has just lost his only daughter to a bus accident. Bleak, depressed and desperate for an escape from his misery, Swift decides to accept a recent offer from the US Government. Armed with a time-control device called the Quantum Suit and a time machine called the Chronomicon, Swift sets out to test the most significant inventions of the century. He is briefly sent back in time to plant an experimental probe. Upon his return to the present, a shift has occurred. The world he left has changed beyond all recognition. And his knowledge of the true time stream has made him an enemy of the state. Swift is now both on the run and on a mission to set time straight once again.
