Whore of the Orient leaked gameplay footage revealed

VideoGamer has acquired the first ever gameplay footage of Team Bondi's troubled next-gen project Whore of the Orient.

The exclusive footage, supplied to us by a trusted source, offers a first look at the lead character, combat, gunplay and city of the open-world action title, which previous publisher Warner Bros. is rumoured to have dropped in late 2012. (PC, PS3, PS4, Whore of the Orient, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Looks awful. Like a "B" tier Uncharted. I know its in development, but still. And that name... They're inviting more controversy than is good for the game.
Arai  +   761d ago
The term "whore of the orient" is an old expression from Shanghai.
bicfitness  +   761d ago
I know where the terminology comes from, but I don't expect most young, modern gamers - or gaming critics - to know or care for the subtly.

Edit: Bubble for Morgan for 'intelligent', below.

Actually it was the nickname of Shanghai. Although like Saigon it was at one time referred to as the Paris of the East it was the former moniker that stuck with it.

I'm happy to see that team bondi are still around, and that this game is still in development, but one problem (totally unrelated)

THAT WATERMARK
I mean seriously, it's taking up like a third of the screen.

I agree that it looks terrible. Graphics are basic. Animations stiff. Expressionless faces.

Of course, I'll reserve judgement for the official reveal, if there will ever be one.
gaffyh  +   761d ago
This game does not look good, at all.
Mariusmssj  +   761d ago
I think it looked great for a team that has shrunk so much from what they used to be and still with no publisher and any real funding! It could look better but with time I KNOW IT WILL
Canary  +   761d ago
I don't know about controversy, but with a name like that, I'm certain the game is garbage.

Even if it ends up being a really good game, it'll still be garbage.
Kurylo3d  +   761d ago
That doesnt even make sense. Art wise the game looks hot, gameplay wise.. looks clunky and still in development.. Kinda boring looking too.

The name is actually good too. Its historically accurate.

I don't blame WB for dropping this.

You can't just clone Uncharted and make a buck you gotta GO BIG!!
NYC_Gamer  +   762d ago
I'm not surprised WB dropped the project after watching
nick309  +   762d ago
Now it shifted to next gen, this is probably a really pre alpha thing.
SpideySpeakz  +   761d ago
Looks like they need to drop it again.
Rashid Sayed  +   762d ago
Looks terrible.
360ICE  +   762d ago
Looks ok. I mean, it's probably taken from really early in development.
fsfsxii  +   762d ago
What is this?? Sleeping Dogs in an older setting??
Chrono  +   762d ago
Not bad.
Buuhan1  +   761d ago
What is this, the brain-dead cousin of Sleeping Dogs?
-Gespenst-  +   761d ago
To be brutally honest, that doesn't look very good, but we shouldn't be judging it on what is probably involuntarily leaked alpha footage of very specific parts of the game. Not to mention the footage is really short.
boing1  +   761d ago
Videogamer logo is definitely too small. Should be much, much bigger. Why doesn't it cover up whole video? What were they thinking?
Rockstar  +   761d ago
Yeah, I had to look really hard to see the logo myself.

What they should have done is flash the full screen logo every 4 or 5 frames.
starchild  +   761d ago
It looks very rough overall, which is to be expected since it is probably pre-alpha. The animations are pretty bad I have to say.
jay2  +   761d ago
Good to see it's alive............But looking bad.
Tatsuya  +   761d ago
Good god, we can only hope this does not resemble the final version of the game at all.
Kyanu  +   761d ago
even for pre-pre-alpha status it doesn't look convincing at all.
Crazay  +   761d ago
There's not a whole lot to go on here but I'd say it's coming along fairly well but if noone wants to back it, then something must be wrong that we aren't seeing. I'd like to see more from this before I make my final judgement. Here's hoping they find someone.
GoldenGamer  +   761d ago
Judging by that I think it has potential. It's obviously very very early in development and things like frame rate issues etc. from what I can gather can be ironed out much later on in development
AgentSmithPS4  +   761d ago
Amazing pimp simulator, you get points for chasing down escaped whores and then you chase and fight other pimps that invade your territory.
ExitToExisT  +   761d ago
This is a kind of video that should have stayed internally, not leaked to public, very early stages of development.
Mikefizzled  +   761d ago
Obviously people don't understand what 'leak' means. This was probably for in house documenting purposes and was never imagined been leaked to the public.
justintime57  +   761d ago
I guess it's not important, but the music in the video is from Assassin's Creed III.
RGB  +   761d ago
Game looks repetitive and boring. Controls, combat and shooting seem clunky. Shame because I really enjoyed L.A.
ninjagoat  +   761d ago
Looks good can tell its early, fighting is stiff and gun play needs a lot off improving. Apart from that they have the old Shanghai feel down. Liking the graphics tbh and i can see them improving twofold by release.
isarai  +   761d ago
you know i'm always optimistic about looking at unfinished products and can usually see the potential they hold. but i just don't see(from the little bit of video at least) how it offers anything new, looks like a typical TPS with some melee components. in short i just don't see how this can be turned into something worth buying based on this footage
stefan771  +   761d ago
Looks like it plays the same as La Noire
