About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

King Arthur is a turn-based empire-building strategy game set in a medieval, mystical Britain where you will play the role of legendary Arthur, the Once and Future King. You build Camelot, enlist the Knights of the Round Table, unite the country and ultimately challenge the powers threatening the essence of all their previous endeavors.

“Having seen early footage of the film, it’s clear this is going to be an adventure that will translate well into a great action video game,” said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer, Konami Digital Entertainment - America. “With the game shipping in the fall, we will offer gamers and movie fans an exciting way to take their experience with King Arthur beyond the silver screen.”

“The King Arthur video game is inspired by the epic true story that gave rise to the King Arthur legend,” said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager of Buena Vista Games. “By working with the talented team at Krome and Konami, the real story of King Arthur will be played out with intense battles, innovative combat and realistic environments.”

The King Arthur video game will immerse fans into the lush environments and vivid scenery from the film. Players take control of the motion picture’s heroes – Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere, Tristren or Bors – and utilize their unique skills as they embark on a perilous mission revealing the historic tale of the real Knights of the Round Table. Featuring single or cooperative play, combat on horseback and multiple mission types with diverse goals, the King Arthur video game will provide a cinematic action adventure experience of epic scale.

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, Top Gun), directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), and written by David Franzoni, the King Arthur film will hit theaters nationwide on July 7, 2004. Bolstered by stars including Clive Owen (Gosford Park, Beyond Borders), Keira Knightley (Bend It Like Beckham, Pirates of the Caribbean) and Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, Cold Mountain), the film portrays the true story behind the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
