'Black & White' Coming To The PlayStation

Indulge your despotic tendencies in a PlayStation game that gives you ultimate control. Control every aspect of the lives of your citizens, command a variety of different tribes, cast dozens of spells or use your titan, to crush the opposition. Do you fancy yourself as a kind and indulgent leader or a raging and maniacal tyrant? Good or evil, black or white, the choice is yours.

Eight tribes live their lives in harmony. They work the land, fish the sea, build homes and farm animals. They only want for one thing. A god. And this is where you come in. It's divine intervention - the villagers, in trouble one day, shout for help and you swoop from the heavens and save them. From that moment on, everything changes. You are their god and they set about constructing a temple in which to worship you. And, as is the way of gods, the more worship you receive, the stronger you get.

Everywhere you look you'll find challenges. These are mini-tests and micro-quests for you to embark upon. For example, how do you deal with thieves taking your tribe's livestock? Can you find and heal the sick villager lost in the woods? How will you help your fishermen in their boats after the wind turns and blows them towards the lethal reefs? Can you outwit the gambler on the beach?

We're very excited about bringing such a well known, high quality game like Black & White to the PlayStation," said Vlatko Andonov, President of Bethesda Softworks. "The controls and gameplay are easy to manage, which enhances the fun elements that have made Black & White so popular."
