On February 28th the first ever trailer for the Superman Returns: The VideoGame will be released! In anticipation of that video release, we have been able to get our hands on the first images from that video for a sneak peak.
In the first image you can see the giant version of Metallo going toe-to-toe with Superman. Watch the video on February 28th to see Superman defeat the Metallo to save Metropolis. EA has been working with DC to include some of the greatest super-villains of all time and in this case, Metallo has been able to absorbed enough metal to grow to over 60 stories tall.
For those that don't know about the game yet, here's some background:
When villains run rampant, only one man can rescue a world in peril. Will you be able to master your super powers to save Metropolis?
Inspired by the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures feature film and more than 60 years of DC Comics' lore, Superman Returns™: The Videogame will create the ultimate open-world super hero experience.
|The bigger they are, the more of them there is to hit. |
As the Man of Steel™, you'll hone your unworldly super powers such as Flight, X-Ray Vision, Heat Vision, Super Hearing, Super Strength, Super Speed, and Super Breath to fight villains that only Superman™ can defeat. Explore your super powers to discover new uses and combinations: use Heat Vision to melt a rogue car or as a focused laser-like beam to cut through thick metal; use Super Breath to move heavy objects or freeze villains into solid ice. You can also combine powers and interact with your environment; for instance, freeze water spouting from a broken fire hydrant into a giant icicle with your Super Breath and use your Super Strength to hurl it at an enemy.
Get ready to take flight, as Superman Returns' revolutionary new mechanics allow you to take full command of your aerial manoeuvres. You're not limited to flying over 800 mph (faster than a speeding bullet™) - you can also corral your enemies, perform stunning in-air acrobatics, instigate Super Speed missile-like attacks, and much more.
In Superman Returns: The Videogame, you explore and protect the truly living city of Metropolis - one that is not only expansive (with 80 sq miles and over 9,000 buildings), but also changes dynamically with you as you affect gameplay. Citizens will run away in terror from newly-erupting danger and also exit their cars to cheer and snap photos as you fly overhead to save them.
Superman may be invincible, but Metropolis is not. Player choice matters, as Metropolis' destruction will affect your ability to progress. You must face the internal conflict facing Superman at every turn: will you pause your pursuit of super villains to stop a massive tornado sweeping through the city and save its civilians? Every decision made is critical to Metropolis' existence and can affect the collateral damage meter, which ultimately keeps the player in the game.
This is not just another movie-based game. This is the Superman game you've always wanted to play. Utilising more than 60 years of rich history, Superman Returns: The Videogame is the ultimate Superman experience for players.
|Faster than a speeding bullet. Chicks don't find that too impressive. |
