'Watchmen' Video Game Preview: Rorschach And Nite Owl Star In Subversive Prequel Set In 1970s

MTV Multiplayer Reports: "Under a cone of silence and the watchful eye of developers and WBIE studio head Martin Tremblay, we saw something entirely unexpected: "Watchmen" heroes Nite Owl and Rorschach beating up bad guys in a game that looked sharp enough to be a full-scale production built on a modern gaming graphics engine but which will actually be a downloadable, episodic game for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC next year.

In the gameplay demo MTV News witnessed, the ink-blotted anti-hero Rorschach bull-rushed a gang of attackers in a dark alley. A bronze-costumed Nite Owl backed him up with a more technological attack, using not just his fists but gadgets to electrify his foes. The developers first played the game for us as a single-player brawler and then in split-screen co-op."

The story is too old to be commented.
