LucasArts Announces 'Wrath Unleashed' (PS2/Xbox) - Screens

by Rainier on May 9, 2003 @ 3:48 p.m. PDT

Part intense combat action, part thought-provoking strategy and pure head-to-head mayhem, Wrath Unleashed pits players against a stunning array of all-powerful fantasy creatures. In both single and head-to-head multiplayer mode, players strategically command an army of spectacular magical creatures as well as engage in fierce one-on-one battles with mythic monsters, demons and characters.

"Wrath Unleashed combines the accessibility and fun of an action game with a challenging twist resulting in an all-new type of gameplay for console players," says Sam Saliba, product marketing manager for LucasArts. "The game offers players a truly 'fantasmical' experience by introducing some of the most magnificent creatures ever seen in a fantasy universe. Wrath Unleashed turns traditional mythology on its head!"

In Wrath Unleashed, powerful beings called overlords fight for supremacy in a striking and imaginative ethereal void as they struggle to become gods and maintain dominance and magic. Overlords and their minion creatures battle for control of magical floating islands represented by a beautiful world map comprised of terrain tiles. Each tile on the map is imbued with an elemental affinity of fire, earth, water or wind.

Players can control four potent and deadly overlords and more than 25 wild and fearsome creatures such as fiery dragons, fierce centaurs, enchanted unicorns, massive juggernauts and all manner of ferocious demons. Creatures and overlords are influenced by popular mythology and have unique manifestations, design twists and magical abilities. All characters have elemental affinities and belong to one of the game's four realms - Dark Chaos, Light Chaos, Dark Order and Light Order.

Players of Wrath Unleashed command an army of creatures and wage war across the vast battlefield of the world map. Armies battle to control islands and capture temples capable of providing players with magical ethereal energy, or mana. Players can use mana to cast spells and provide a competitive advantage over an opponent.

When two opponents clash for domination of the same tile, the game transitions to an arena view where one-on-one battles occur. The real action begins as players are thrust into arena-style combat and full 3D control of characters is enabled. In arena combat, creatures wield magic, weapons and use teeth and claws to defeat enemies in vicious close and long-range attacks. Players must be wary for the land itself can strike out with powerful storms, fatal floods, erupting volcanoes or deadly earthquakes.

Unleash your wrath this winter. And, may the best beast win!
