The lights are on
The PC developer known for pushing hardware to its breaking point is at it again, only this time the game doesn't involve guns or enhancement suits. Crytek announced a very gritty, blood-soaked game called Codename Kingdoms at the Microsoft Press Conference in Los Angeles today, using only live actors.
The reveal trailer shows a man standing in a dark battlefield, caked with fresh blood and having a very deep inner monologue. He wields a spartan-like sword and shield, and speaks of overcoming oppressive forces against all odds. As war drums beat in the background, well-armed men join him from behind. Codename Kingdom's dark presentation is reminiscent of the movie 300, but seeing another Spartan in the context of a video game only makes me think of God of War.
Could Crytek and Microsoft be looking to bring a God of War killer to Xbox 360?
Email the author Tim Turi, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
Yep, god of war made up Spartans too. Seriously, everything ever doesn't have to do with GoW.
Hahahahahahahaha that last sentence is hilarious. God of War killer. hahahahahahahahaha (BASED ON WHAT IVE SEEN OF 360 EXCLUSIVES AS OF 6/14/2010 AT 2:53 PM. I know I'm about to start a flame war and I'll probably recieve death threats) I haven't seen any 360 exclusive that can touch God of War 3.
Age of Empires? >_>
i love how the gametrailers correspondent asked the microsoft rep if this was a fps! lol
This has potential.
This game looks epicly, amazingly kool.
This is probably going to be a game that is going to get a 6.25 - 8.00 from GameInformer. If its 8 then I might be interested.
um i need to see more of this
I need more info! Now!
Yea, I got nothing out of this teaser...
if crytec is making a game similar to god of war 3 then i guarantee its going to be better in fact with the tech there bringing they would completly knock gow out of the picture.
Ugh. I'm done with all that God of War button mashing crap. If they make this title more tactic-heavy than GOW and Dante's Inferno, it'll get my money.
