Enslaved Golden, Two Fates Intertwine On October 5
One of the most anticipated titles of 2010 is exactly one month away and now, you can chisel that date in stone.
Today, Namco Bandai has announced that Enslaved: Odyssey to the West has gone gold. It will release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 5, 2010; the production features "influences and contributions from top music and film industry talent" and focuses on a post-apocalyptic US where machines are now dominating what is left of the human race. 150 years in the future, war and destruction have razed the landscape and mysterious slave ships roam the land, capturing survivors and disappearing.
There are two main characters: the tech-savvy young woman, Trip, and the physically capable Monkey, and they'll need to combine their talents if they wish to survive. Players will control Monkey, who enters combat with a stick weapon (along with some ranged weapons) and is capable of running, leaping and - as we've seen in some gameplay - zipping around on a hoverboard-type thing. But Trip will be crucial in scouting the environment, offering intel on enemies, identifying optional routes, and upgrading Monkey's skills.
There are several pre-order incentives if you put a deposit on the game at participating retailers, and that includes some cool downloadable content. More DLC will be discussed down the road.
