New The War of the Worlds Trailer (Starring Sir Patrick Stewart) and ScreensOctober 6, 2011
Other Ocean Interactive has released the second trailer for its upcoming War of the Worlds game, in another one of its “Arthur Diaries” – featuring some gameplay footage and some voice work by the always awesome Sir Patrick Stewart, who plays Arthur Clark. This video shows Arthur in the middle of the alien invasion in Hyde Park.
Other Ocean Interactive states that “The War of the Worlds is a dark and breathtaking new vision inspired by the classic H.G. Wells novel, retold as a single player, 2D action-adventure. The gameplay narrative parallels the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation, but introduces a new story arc, characters, locations, and sub-plots. With gameplay paying homage to classic cinematic platformers such as Out of This World, Prince of Persia, Flashback and Heart of Darkness, players follow the exploits of an unknown everyman struggling to escape the Martian invasion of London and rescue his family. Forced to think through insurmountable odds, players will outsmart an army of alien tripods, spiders and drones as they make their way through a landscape of total devastation.”
