EA has released several sreenshots of the “Don’s View” feature, which is how players pull the puppet strings and run their family. The game will be released on April 7. See the screenshots below the break.
The game based on the Universal Studios picture will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 platforms on Tuesday March 24. The game being developed by GRIN and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment continues the story of the movie’s main character Wesley Gibson, with a new adventure involving an elite fraternity of assassins. I am interested in how the new story will begin, because I thought Angelina Jolie killed all of the assassins at the end of the movie. I really didn’t like the movie because it was just too ridiculous and far fetched. For me leaping out windows to roof tops hundreds of feet away, killing guys from miles and miles away with a sniper rifle that requires a dentist chair to operate, or curving bullets around obstructions is just a bit much. Wanted: Weapons of Fate could end up being a good game, but the movie has just plain ruined it for me. GRIN has promised intense gameplay with features straight from the movie like “Assassins Time” and “Curving Bullets” that are supposed to create a third-person experience unlike any other. We will see soon enough, but for now all this game makes me want to do is curve a PS3 controller into my TV. (Thanks for the story Game Spy)
