Later this year, the film of The Adventures of Tintin
is due to be released in theatres and cinemas worldwide. Inevitably, it is accompanied by a game tie-in, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
. Players will be able to venture through some recognisable settings from the film, including ‘The Karaboudjan’ (Captain Archibald Haddock’s ship), Omar Ben Salaad’s Palace and the exotic city of Bagghar.
As well as the single player campaign, the game will also have cooperative challenges for two players on maps specifically designed for multiplayer gameplay. These challenges allow players to assume the role of many classic characters from Tintin’s adventures. Both the single player campaign and the co-op modes are demonstrated in this trailer released from the Gamescom event.
Those of you who can't view the trailer will appreciate these screenshots instead:

is due to be released in December 2011.
