GC05: King Kong presentation

GC05: King Kong presentation

Michel Ancel himself was at the Game Convention yesterday to show his very big baby King Kong at the Ubisoft press conference. I have to admit that even if the graphics are obviously based on the PS2 version, I have been really impressed by this game. The gameplay sequence with King Kong was really amazing thanks to how well you feel the power of the king of Skull Island. Another thing worth mentioning is that Michel Ancel also confirmed us that they would try to get the Xbox 360 version out before the end of the year, and that their goal for this version was to get the graphics as close as possible to the movie.

Why is he working on this game then? It really doesn't fit his style ...
He should be designing new creative games! :P

    Sdarts The difference is that they are cinematic set-pieces designed by an animation director and etc to look very cool/badass, which they do. Still the game I'm most looking forward to on Xbox One. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @digi_matrix: QB's physics simulation is great, but the stop, forward and rewind time mechanic is nothing new, it's basically a real time "Photo mode" like the ones in Infamous:SS and DA:I. (1 Hour ago)
