1UP: Watchmen First-Look Preview

Episodic is right. The original 12-part Watchmen graphic novel -- considered one of the top 100 novels of all time, according to Time Magazine -- is, as most of you know, finally making its way to movie theaters in March 2009, courtesy of 300 director Zack Snyder and scripted by David Hayter and Alex Tse. Of more immediate interest to gamers, though, is the news that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will release, in videogame form, the prequel to the Watchmen comic/film, on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC

However, separating Watchmen -- which is a third-person action game -- from the typical licensed movie crossover videogame adaptation is the fact that all three versions will arrive in episodic, downloadable fashion, via Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and the usual but-yet-to-be-determined sources for PC game distribution like Steam.

The story is too old to be commented.
