Gamecock are announcing games left and right, having both Hail to the Chimp and now Legendary: The Box in their new portfolio. Spark Unlimited is the developer, and the game is planned for a release in next spring on PC and next-gen platforms. Spark are primarily known for Call of Duty: Finest Hour, and are today also working on Turning Point: Fall of Liberty for Codemasters. First images can be found inside together with some info.

Quoting press release:
Legendary: The Box tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he opens the box, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world.

For those who want action and great fights, I really recommend "Int the Badlands" on AMC. The fights' coreography are amazing and the story is good enough to keep the action going. (50 minutes ago)
