War of the Worlds “Launch Trailer”


“Developed in conjunction with Paramount Digital Entertainment, The War of the Worlds is a dark and breathtaking new vision inspired by the classic H.G. Wells novel, retold as a single player, 2D action-adventure and narrated by the acclaimed and distinguished actor Sir Patrick Stewart.”

“Set in London, the gameplay narrative parallels the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation, but introduces a new story arc, characters, locations, and sub-plots. With gameplay paying homage to classic cinematic platformers such as Flashback, Out of This World and Prince of Persia, the game follows the exploits of an unknown everyman struggling to escape the Martian invasion of London and rescue his family. Forced to think through insurmountable odds, players will outsmart an army of alien tripods, spiders and drones as they make their way through a landscape of total devastation.”

War of the Worlds is coming soon for the PSN.

    first thing that popped into my head was Prince of Persia! It does look impressive indeed, do we have a release date?

    Ahhh *Excitement Balloon Deflates* I saw a quick start of this article I was thinking YEA. That’s an awesome Idea! Why didn’t they ever make an FPS about War of the World and really give it some gusta! But a sidescroller that’s more like Odd World and hiding from crap? Patrick Stewart, even with your booming voice I can not say “ENGAGE” on this title.

    It could be a fun title. Admittedly, when I think of War of the Worlds, I do think of people hiding trying to survive. I think this game would be much more interesting if it didn’t have “War of the Worlds” tacked on to it. A lot of people may be disappointed to see the name and realize the game is just a small 2D platformer.
