Well i don't actually have anything for you to say "hi" to but it just got announced. 360 and PS3.
 
All i know is that it is an action game in which the player takes the role of Enoch, someone who is send down from heaven by the gods to partake in a raging war between angels and demons.  
 
Ignition also said that they tried to make it an accessible game, take that as you will. 

There must be a press release floating around somewhere that goes a bit more in detail.

So they are ripping off the Bible for characters that won't be anything like they are in the Bible? Isn't that tantamount to ripping off Greek Mythology but not having it resemble mythology in the slightest? That doesn't sound fun to me at all.

So... God of War isn't fun?

Half the people (and the story arch, maybe?) supposedly in the game aren't really that strong Biblical characters. There is a vague Enoch-cite in Jude 14-15, but that doesn't make those books canonical. How many times is Azazel mentioned, any recollection of the name at all? The Books of Enoch are a mess mysticism and vision, but they have plot elements I'm not gonna reveal because the game might be spoilt. But enough of that. The way I see it, the game's gonna be some High-ranking Apocryphical Action! :)
