War Of The Worlds New Gameplay Video Released

By Andrew Ogley, 5 years ago
More screenshots and a video have been released by Other Ocean, the developers behind the upcoming XBLA release, War of the Worlds.

The 2D side-scrolling platform/puzzler, is a reworking of the classic tale from H.G. Wells, in which aliens from Mars invade the Earth. Just like in the original novel, the action in the game is centered around the city of London, which the video clip demonstrates, featuring gameplay around a devastated Paddington Station.



The screenshots show some more details of the same location, and also include a piece of concept art showing a scene from Hyde Park.

From all we've seen so far, the game is looking really polished. The imagery has a very distinctive style, Patrick Stewart provides narration, and judging from the gameplay video, this is not going to be an easy ride at all.

War of the Worlds hits XBLA sometime this year.
