Let’s keep the E3 trailer bandwagon rolling. PlatformNation.com is proud to bring you the E3 trailer for ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™ for the Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3.
Set in a future where the machines that humans built to fight wars for them have all but wiped out humanity. Two heroes, Monkey and Trip stand between the machines and the total annihilation of mankind. You play as Monkey who was unfortunate enough to get picked up by one of the machine slave ships that scours the earth looking for survivors. Somehow managing to escape from the machines, Monkey and Trip need to work together to survive. Trip is more eco-friendly that you and prefers the softly softly approach compared to your act first, think later mindset. She wants to get back to her home and needs your help and to ensure you do this, she fits you with a headband which will explode if you do not do her bidding. So although the two of you work together, it’s not the happiest of alliances.
This E3 trailer reveals more of the action / adventure we can expect to play in October 2010.
NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today released the E3 trailer for ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™ for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The E3 trailer provides an intense look into the post-apocalyptic world of ENSLAVED, and a glimpse at the dangerous expedition that Monkey and Trip must face.
Developed by Ninja Theory Ltd., ENSLAVED takes players on a gripping, surprise-filled journey as two dissimilar characters form an uneasy union in order to survive their way through a perilous, post-apocalyptic America. In ENSLAVED, players take on the role of Monkey, a strong and athletic, yet solitary figure, who has been captured by one of the mysteri ous slave ships, which harvest the remaining population and take them out west never to return. Trip, a technologically savvy young woman who has also been imprisoned by the same ship, manages to escape. She quickly realizes that Monkey, with his raw strength and power, is her only hope to survive the perilous journey back to her home. She hacks into a slave headband and fits it on Monkey, linking them together – if she dies, he dies… Her journey has now become his and Monkey must now travel west alongside Trip as they traverse a demolished world, under constant threat of capture and mortal peril.
A tactical action-adventure game, ENSLAVED centers on the complex relationship between the two main characters and challenges players to employ a mix of combat, strategy and environment traversal. With influences and contributions from top music and film industry talent, Enslaved combines beautifully rendered graphics and captivating music with seamless animation and engrossing gameplay.
