X-Men Origins: Wolverine, scheduled for release in May 2009, coincides with the global debut of Twentieth Century Fox's release of its feature film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which is also based on the famous Marvel character.
From the award-winning studio Raven Software, the video game enlists players to experience the tormented origins of Wolverine, from his escape of the Weapon X facility to the jungles of Africa and beyond.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is an epic action-adventure featuring a true-to-character Wolverine gameplay experience that takes gamers through and beyond the movie's storyline. Set in a variety of vivid real-world locales, the title challenges players to hone their animal instinct as they uncover hidden dangers, hunt and destroy enemies, and take on seemingly insurmountable situations while discovering the truth about Wolverine's tragic past. With razor-sharp adamantium claws unsheathed, the future X-Man enacts lightning-quick combat, evasive maneuvers, in-depth combo attacks, and an array of brutal finishing moves. Wolverine doesn't just deliver massive damage, either -- he also takes it, thanks to his mutant regenerative power that heals him in real time right before the player's eyes.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine players can now download the Weapon X Arena, a level composed of four unique combat simulators, from Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points and from the PlayStation Store.
Custom Combat Arena
Gamers can spawn any combination of small and large enemies to face combinations not available in standard gameplay, from hordes of grunts they can cut down in seconds to a complex mix of enemies, including a Sentinel Prototype, Jungle Grappler, Machine Gunners and more.
Once players have encountered all enemies in the game, the Ladder Challenge room unlocks, presenting gamers with a preconfigured challenge. Enemy types and numbers start small and ramp up, flooding the room for fifty waves of increasingly difficult combat challenges.
This room includes all the unique environmental weapons in the game, including broken tree branches that can be used as spears, forklift skids to throw enemies toward and computer consoles into which players can smash enemies—to name a few.
The Weapon X Arena also contains a bonus room with heightened enemy reaction effects.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine, not yet rated, is currently in development for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, NDS, PS2 and PSP, by Raven Studios and Amaze Entertainment.
