Only twelve days ago was War of the Worlds announced
for XBLA. Fortunately for us, more information has been released about the game with some screenshots.War of the Worlds
is inspired by H.G. Wells' novel of the same name and the game attempts to capture the terror of its inspiration.
Gamers will be submerged into a 2D side-scrolling, action-adventure game, where players will be asked to use intelligence to avoid alien invaders in a wasteland. If gamers are stuck then they can use a hint feature implemented into the game.
Other Ocean Interactive brought on Sir Patrick Stewart, famously know as Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Next Generation
and Professor Xavier in the X-Men
film series, as the game's narrator.
As narrator, Stewart will detail the adventures of a man in 1953 London who is trying to save his family from an alien invasion. The story Stewart will tell parallels the 1953 movie, but the game will have a new story arc that follows different characters and locations.
To give you a visual aid of what this will all look like, check out the screenshots released:
The game currently has no definite release date but it is set to release later this year.
