Beowulf Game Revealed

Time to open the good mead, as Ubisoft announces Beowulf movie tie-in has word that today's "Ubidays" event held by Ubisoft in Paris saw the unveiling of plans for a Beowulf game. This is a tie-in with an upcoming movie based on the untitled epic poem known by that name, but seems unrelated to this Beowulf game (after a millennium, we're probably in ©/™-free territory here). They are not revealing details such as target platforms at this point, but do say the game "should re-invent the hack-and-slash genre." According to IMDB, Robert Zemeckis' movie based on the poem is due in November of this year, which probably serves as a good indicator of when to expect the game.

I mean, most MMOs need more than 2 patches else you get class action lawsuits.

I think that's just it, though. There aren't enough lawsuits to point out the obvious flaws in the gaming industry as a whole - too often publishers just release unfinished games. For all the moaning and griping Riley and cohorts do about Steam and such, there are far fewer technical problems encountered in running that then say...your typical EA release (which ironically the idiot, Riley, has actually praised in the past).
