Watchmen Coming to Gaming

With the growing buzz of the upcoming movie Watchmen(a trailer before The Dark Knight tends to do that) comes news of a Watchmen game. The game will be episodic, downloadable and available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Deadline Games will make this third person game which will have a co-op option.

The Watchmen game will be a prequel to the movie and take place in the times before costumed adventurers were outlawed in the Watchmen world. It will also take place only at night. Players will play either Nite Owl or Rorschach. Hurm. They will play as the team in their earlier days of crime fighting, back when they were younger and more fit.

The game is expected to receive an M rating. Rorschach will be a street fighter who will use anything and everything in a fight. Nite Owl will use more finesse, martial arts and electronics. There will also be puzzles for players to overcome.

The game will be released in episodes and will be released around the time of the movie's release(March 2009).

I must say, I just read the Watchmen graphic novel in the last month, and it's definitely a lot different than any other super hero world. I look forward to it.
