Today we are given an announcement that is touted as being legendary, and by being legendary we must place our full attention on this one title. See what I did there? Ok, maybe not your full attention, but maybe some of it? Announced by Atari and the Gamecock Media Group, a new first-person shooter will have you battling it out in the torn world of the mythical creatures like werewolves and gryphons. Spark Unlimited takes the reigns and will be developing this title for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
“This exciting and original title takes the lead in our Atari Shooter line up,” said Mathias Hautefort, Executive Vice President of publishing and production, Atari. “Producing a game of this quality and scale is a major undertaking, but the highly talented team at Spark Unlimited is more than up to the job.”
Here is a bit of a plot synopsis that seems rather different then the norm, but who knows; it could end up being just a halo-control like game with a different story.
Legendary tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he inadvertently opens it, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard’s unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures.
