Hot damn. This, as well as Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3? Take my money.

All of it.

(But give me Mirror's Edge 2 soon, please)

Yup, it's exciting news. EA make a very, very good FPS when they put their mind to it, so hopefully this turns out to be something decent.

I do agree with you about Mirror's Edge 2, though. Loved the first.

Black trolls live on the many layers of the Abyss, being fiendish descendants of trolls. These trolls, also known as demon trolls, are among the largest of their kind, most over 13 feet tall. These creatures look like oversized trolls with smooth black skin, sparse hair, green eyes with an evil gleam, and red horns jutting out from their forehead. Despite this, black trolls have an oddly humanlike physique.

Black trolls speak Giant and Abyssal.

Black trolls fight in the same manner as normal trolls, but have a much wider array of abilities, and a notably higher intelligence, which they use to their utmost advantage. They like to use their chain lightning in the middle of a melee, as their immunity to electricity protects them well.

Black trolls are considered as giant-type monsters when attacked by dwarves, gnomes, and rangers.

Rock Throwing (Ex): Black trolls have learned to throw rocks in the same manner as giants, receiving a +1 racial bonus to attack rolls when throwing rocks. Black trolls can hurl rocks weighing 40 to 50 pounds each (Small objects) up to a range of 5 increments.

Chain Lightning (Su): Three times per day, a black troll can unleash a chain lightning attack. This ability is as the spell cast by a 6th-level sorcerer (save DC 16).

Spell-Like Abilities: At will - darkness, dispel magic, pyrotechnics, telekinesis (5,000 pound weight limit), and teleport without error. These abilities are as the spells cast by a 9th-level sorcerer (save DC 10 + spell level).

Summon Monsters (Sp): Once per day a black troll can attempt to summon 1d2 normal trolls, 1d4 dretch demons, or another 1d2 black trolls with a 50% chance of success.

Regeneration (Ex): Fire, acid, and holy and blessed weapons of at least +2 enchantment deal normal damage to a black troll

What the 0_o

I bet they LOLd when the name was thought up so they chose it. I know that I would do the same.

I would name my game company either
Awesome Sauce games or We Love Bacon studios

Supposing this studio is real, I honestly can't see why EA would publish a PS3 exclusive at this point in the consoles cycle.

DrFUD2580d ago

because it's a Playstation Move FPS

Disccordia2580d ago

Fair point mate, I guess that would make sense.

I would love it to be a ps3 exclusive but I highly doubt EA or any third party will actually do an exclusive at the moment. maybe they just hired that person to work on the ps3 version. I guess it will be a shock announcement if it is true. we seem to be missing them shock announcements lately at every show.

Tito082580d ago

It could be a timed-exclusive like with Mass Effect 2 on the 360!!!

metsgaming2580d ago
