Today Ubisoft held its Ubidays event in Paris and the company announced it will publish the videogame tie-in to the upcoming Beowulf movie. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (The Polar Express), the movie is an adaptation of the classic story of the warrior Beowulf and his battle with Grendel and Grendel's old lady.
The game will be a hack 'n slash affair that Alain Corre, executive director of Ubisoft's European, Middle Eastern, and Asian territories, reportedly said will "reinvent" the genre. The team behind Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is handling development. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot added that he thinks the game will be "amazing."
