180w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared an Enslaved: Odyssey to the West PlayStation 3 video interview today from E3 2010.
To quote: When we were divvying up the reporting assignments at E3, James Gallagher jumped at the chance to interview the team behind Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.
The result: we get to enjoy the dulcet tones of two poshly-accented gentlemen talking about a game that looks pretty cool by the developers of Heavenly Sword. And here's James:
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is one of the most visually striking games I played at E3. It's developed by Ninja Theory of Heavenly Sword fame and the story is written by Alex Garland, author of The Beach and the scriptwriter behind 28 Days Later. It also features the acting and directorial talents of Andy Serkis.
It's one of the games I'm most looking forward to this year so at E3, Jeff Rubenstein was kind enough to stay behind the camera while I spoke to the game's creative director, Tam Antoniades.
So What Does It Play Like? Many comparisons have been made (by watching previews) to Team Fortress 2, which is understandable due to the similarity in genre.
Although we do love TF2, we are very confident that the gameplay and feel of Lead and Gold has an identity all of its own.
Lead and Gold features six multiplayer maps, five multiplayer game modes, a co-op mode and a single player practice mode. The matches are five-on-five affairs and the game mechanics, game modes and maps have all been designed with one common goal: team play.
Let me give you some examples:
• Player characters have aura buffs – we call them Synergies – that strengthen your gang-mates if they stay in your vicinity. This is a simple but effective way to encourage players to work together.
This division sent both the Rockies and Dodgers to the post season last year and could exceed expectations once again in 2010.
The Dodgers will likely contend for first place, but really need their young guns in Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier to step up and lead the way.
Same goes for the Rockies...anchored by Troy Tulowitzki and veteran Todd Helton, expect Colorado to make a run for the division crown once again. The Giants came up a bit short last season, but with aces in Matt Cain...
The game features 6 multiplayer maps, 5 multiplayer game modes, 4 Professions and a single player practice mode.
