E3 2010: Ubisoft Reveals Futuristic "Multi-Sensory Shooter"
Now this is a decidedly cool project.
Ubisoft's presentation at E3 included a few surprises as well as the formal announcement of the new Driver, and arguably the most intriguing is the publisher's collaboration with Q Entertainment and Tetsuya Mizuguchi for the "innovative new gaming experience" known as Child of Eden. It's described as a "multi-sensory shooter that will send players diving into a kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals that will usher forth a landmark game experience." Set for a Q1 2011 release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the promising title will be compatible with Microsoft's Kinect motion system (there was no mention of PlayStation Move in the press release). The story involves a quest to save Project Lumi, "a mission to reproduce a human personality inside Eden, the archive of all human memories." But just when they're nearing success, a virus invades and you must save Eden.
Here's a list of the features:
Multi-sensory effect: A visionary entertainment experience that synchronizes stunning graphics and innovative sound design to electrify the senses. By bringing physics in synergy with spectacular visuals and audio, Child of Eden is creating the next-generation sensory experience.
The world of Eden: Coming straight from Tetsuya Mizuguchi's creative mind: a unique, surprising, rich and beautiful world.
Controls: Simple and natural. Designed for standard controllers and Kinect for Xbox 360. With no controller required, Kinect for Xbox 360 adds an extra dimension to the experience as the player truly merges into the game. The sensor will detect the player's body movements, allowing for a completely new multi-sensory shooting game experience.
