Watchmen games planned
We are no strangers to video games of major films, and it seems Watchmen will be no different. Only instead of releasing games to buy over the counter, there will be at least two downloadable games for PS3, XBox 360 and PC.
Most video games based on films seem to miss the mark. But by making the games downloadable, the makers of the Watchmen game will have more time to work on them. Could this be a game that gets it right?
Warner Bros plan to release at least two downloadable Watchmen game episodes. One to coincide with the films release in March next year, and one at the same time as the DVD release. Warner Bros say that by going for shorter downloadable games as opposed to over the counter games, they will end up with a higher quality product. Warner Bros had this to say to Variety:
We don’t want a low-quality console game that will get lost at retail. A downloadable game allows us to deliver the experience that fans expect.
The games will feature Rorschach and Nite Owl, and if it proves succesful there will be more. Well they are talking a good game, would you be interested in a downloadable Watchmen game? To whet your appetite you can see the awesome trailer here on Filmstalker.
