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.

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.

The term "whore of the orient" is an old expression from Shanghai.

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.

inveni01004d ago

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.

gaffyh1004d ago

This game does not look good, at all.

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

Canary1004d 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.

Kurylo3d1004d ago (Edited 1004d 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!!

I'm not surprised WB dropped the project after watching

nick3091004d ago

Now it shifted to next gen, this is probably a really pre alpha thing.

SpideySpeakz1004d ago

Looks like they need to drop it again.

360ICE1004d ago

Looks ok. I mean, it's probably taken from really early in development.

What is this?? Sleeping Dogs in an older setting??
