'X-Men: The Official Game' (ALL) Gets Hollywood Voice-Overs

For the first time ever, the game enables players to truly command the powers of popular characters from the X-Men movie universe by allowing players to assume the roles of Wolverine, Nightcrawler, and Iceman as they wield and upgrade their signature powers and maneuver through unique environments designed to showcase their Super Hero abilities. Assisted by other X-Men characters, players will use an advanced control scheme to master and control the characters like never before as they unleash Wolverine's combat rage, experience Nightcrawler's acrobatics and teleportation powers, and glide through the air on Iceman's ice slide.

The game catapults players into an original storyline that serves as a prelude to Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Studio’s upcoming film, ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ and allows them to command the distinct powers of Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Iceman as they face off against formidable enemies, battle through massive environments and embark on an epic quest to save mutant-kind.

“Having these actors renew their movie characters in X-Men: The Official Game immerses gamers in the X-Men movie universe,” said Will Kassoy, vice president of global brand management, Activision Publishing. “Players will experience epic battles and uncover the events behind Nightcrawler’s mysterious disappearance and the roles the X-Men and Brotherhood play in the upcoming film.”

Co-written by Zak Penn, one of the film’s screenwriters, and legendary comic book writer Chris Claremont, X-Men: The Official Game enables players to assume the roles of Wolverine, Nightcrawler, and Iceman as they wield and upgrade their signature powers and maneuver through unique environments designed to showcase their Super Hero abilities. Assisted by other Marvel X-Men mutants, players use an advanced control scheme to master and evolve the characters as they unleash Wolverine’s combat rage, experience Nightcrawler’s acrobatics and teleportation powers, and tear through the air on Iceman’s ice slide.
