Night Watch Announced

Nival Interactive announces Night Watch, an upcoming tactical RPG "set in the epic universe of Others." The website for the game is already online, offering screenshots, animations, game info, forums, and the press release announcing the project, which does not yet carry a release date. Here's a bit from the announcement:
Join the Night Watch and step out to protect the case of Light using all your magic power! Get ready to step into thrilling magic battles in two parallel realities - in real locations of modern Moscow and in the Dusk, the Other layer of reality filled with magic. As you gain experience your power will grow - and you will choose a type of Other you want to be out of three, Shapeshifter, Enchanter and Mage, each of them having its own special spells and abilities. Magic battles in reality and in the Dusk and twisted plot with unexpected turns will make your service in the Night Watch an unforgettable adventure and a captivating challenge.

Actually it is based on the first book in a series of novels (which the movie was based on) by Sergey Lukyanenko.

I hope the name of this game doesn't cause problems for the Half-Life mod of the same name.

For you guys hoping for a Silent Storm with more RPG elements... check out "Sickle and Hammer"... its basically going to be like JA2 in how much sidequesting, dialoging, open-ended goodness you can do - it looks so freakin sweet

Night Watch looks cool too though

Silent Storm was an awesome game, but I hope there'll be a lot more RPG in this tactical RPG than just some stats for your generic squadmates.

The game is based off a Russian movie, I believe.

Yep. Stated on the website:

Night Watch is a unique tactic RPG set in the epic universe of Others, shown in the blockbuster movie Night Watch.

Haha, Wogan. I was wondering if my memory served me right and this shared the same name as that bomb.

There is a movie called Night Watch yes, it looks pretty good on the trailer. http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox_searchlight/night_watch/

But after seeing it, I can say it's NOTHING like the trailer, the special effects even look better in the trailer, the movie sucks, it's very boring. It had tons of potentional, but it just got too boring. I must note that I don't understand russian and had to watch the movies with subtitles, that might have had an impact on the final verdict.

Saw the title and hoped it was a Discworld game.
