Based on the highly anticipated feature film The Adventures of Tintin directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, The Adventures of Tintin: The Game will provide Tintin fans, both young and old, the opportunity to dive into the world of Tintin and relive key adventures from the series.

Yves Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer at Ubisoft said:

We’re excited for the opportunity to work with such renowned filmmakers on the iconic Tintin franchise. Our development team in Montpellier has worked very closely with the film team to ensure that players will have the chance to recreate the magical moments of the movie and to experience complete immersion into the Tintin universe.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Game will take players on a journey through the world of Tintin. Players will rediscover the movie’s enchanting environments from Captain Archibald Haddock’s ship “the Karaboudjan,” Omar Ben Salaad’s Palace and the exotic city of Bagghar while experiencing many of Tintin’s adventures.

Adapting various elements from the Tintin comic books The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure, gamers are able to continue the adventure solo or with friends in one of three gameplay modes. Single-player campaign will offer players a unique blend of exploration, puzzles and combat. Combat also includes exotic gameplay elements such as sword fighting and aerial combat. Support for the Kinect™ for Xbox 360 will offer players with a unique control scheme for the game.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Game also offers cooperative challenges that introduce classic characters from Tintin’s adventures. Players will be able to work together in special multiplayer maps straight from the moody dreams of Captain Haddock. Those looking for extra competition will find many features in Challenge mode to compete with each other for high scores.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Game is scheduled for release this Holiday season 2011.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
