To quote: With TRON Legacy bringing the uncanny valley to theaters nationwide on December 17th in IMAX 3D and Disney Digital 3D, the pressure's on TRON: Evolution to serve up some bleeding-edge hardware of its own. Luckily, TRON: Evolution on the PS3 is locked and loaded state-of-the-art stereoscopic 3D as well as PlayStation Move support.
We spoke with Game Director Darren Hedges for the full skinny on TRON: Evolution and grabbed first video of PlayStation Move controls in action for the epic lightcycle sequences in the campaign.
Tech details aside, Hedges explains how TRON: Evolution's persistent character customization across all modes means your progress and upgrades (roughly 60 in all) in the single-player campaign will transfer to online multiplayer, and vice-versa.
Hedges also details how the TRON: Evolution team worked closely with the film team on TRON: Legacy, sharing assets, motion-capture...
165w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared new information today on the upcoming video game TRON Evolution for PS3, including PlayStation 3 multiplayer, 3D and PlayStation Move details.
To quote: TRON: Evolution is formally considered the second entry in the TRON trilogy, bridging the fiction between the 1982 film and the upcoming film TRON: Legacy.
But in addition to its new single-player story, TRON: Evolution will also serve up a comprehensive multiplayer mode complete with a player progression system, upgradeable weapons, and driveable vehicles. The new video below will give you a taste of what's in store.
I spoke with TRON: Evolution's design director, Chris Whiteside, to learn more about the scope of multiplayer and how stereoscopic 3D support will add to the experience (and possibly improve your aim).
And though details on PlayStation Move support are still scarce – sadly, it wasn't playable at the event – I was able to tease out a few details about how it will work when the final game ships this December.
Sid Shuman: Visually, TRON: Evolution looks to be showing many new visual effects since its last appearance....
