Battlefield: Los Angeles Game Tie-In Announced

Komami has announced a downloadable, first person shooter game Battlefield: Los Angeles.  Tied into the Columbia Picture feature film of the same name, the game will be available next month via PSN, Xbox Live Arcade, Steam and select digital distribution channels.

The plot from the movie sounds as if it were genetically engineered for a video game.  Aliens invade Los Angeles and the military goes to work defending mankind.  Hell yea!

“Konami jumped at the opportunity to team up with Columbia Pictures and publish the Battle: Los Angeles video game,” said Careen Yapp, Vice President of Acquisitions and Franchise Development Konami Digital Entertainment. “We love the movie and it was a great experience working with Saber – there were some great ideas about how to expand the story into a game.  It’s a great chance for gamers and moviegoers to play out the world of the film.”

The film will be released on March 11, 2011 with the game following sometime in April.  An exact release date and pricing have not been released.

So – take a look at the movie trailer and tell me this isn’t perfect FPS game fodder.
