The War of the Worlds is a much loved book by the fantastic author H.G. Wells and now it’s getting it’s very own game coming to XBLA and PSN this summer developed by Other Ocean Interactive.
The War of the Worlds is a story about a lone person trying to escape the destruction and chaos during an alien invasion in 1950s London.
The War of the Worlds will feature a gorgeous 2D rotoscoped cinematic art style that will be shown off during E3. Imagine the story being retold as a 2D single player action-adventure game that follows the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation. But with some new original story arc’s, locations, characters and sub plots.
Any fans of the book or the movies should keep your eyes peeled at E3 for this game as it sounds pretty amazing. I’ve seen the movie adaptation from recent years and if its anything like that, this game will be a must buy for me.
Expect The War of the Worlds to be hitting Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this summer.
