Ubisoft Goes Ape With 'King Kong'

by Rainier on April 14, 2004 @ 12:08 a.m. PDT

Delve deeper into the film experience through alternative viewpoints designed to immerse the player into the action and truly "feel" the tension of the adventure. Unprecedented Alternating Gameplay Battle for survival on Skull Island in first-person as Jack Driscoll AND experience the staggering power of King Kong in third-person taking on massive beasts. By integrating Weta assets directly into the game engine, and taking a true cinematic approach, from both a visual and audio perspective, players are thrust directly onto the Skull Island where the dark jungles, over-sized environment and lurking danger become reality.
By now we all know that Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson has been tapped to do a remake of the classic King Kong movie. Starring Adrien Brody from "The Piano" and not comedian Jack Black (recently seen in The School Of Rock), Gamespot got the confirmation from Ubisoft people that they are indeed publishing (or maybe also developing?) a game based on the movie, to coincide with the theatrical release, somewhere in 2005. No specific details are available at this time, but with E3 drawing closer we hopefully won't have to wait much longer.
