Watchmen Arriving Also As Movie/PS3 Game Combo

#1 Posted by LiquidPrince (15917 posts) -

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that its upcoming PS3 game 'Watchmen: The End is Nigh', based on the 'Watchmen' film, will be released in July 2009 in a game/film hybrid that will include the 'Watchmen: Director's Cut' BD. This two-disc collectible set will feature exclusive artwork in a premium package.

The game will also be released in the more traditional retail and downloadable formats.

'Watchmen: The End is Nigh' is a hardcore mature action brawler featuring bloody visceral combat in settings which are reminiscent of the film. It is divided in two parts. Part 1 (released in March 2009 on the PlayStation Network) takes place more than a decade before the film's main story, delving into the partnership of urban vigilantes Rorschach and Nite Owl before the hero-banning Keene Act. In Part 2, the duo team up again as Rorschach contacts Nite Owl to help solve the case of a missing girl, Violet Greene.

Man... Watchmen's source material just doesn't stand up well as a game. I feel like this will just be a generic brawler with Watchmen characters tacked on for selling potential and will retain none of the comic's original flair.

Yeah, the End is Nigh wasn't that great. I just thought the idea behind what they're doing is interesting.
