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.

Well if you guys watched "The Thirteenth Warrior" you will get an idea of how a new Beowulf movie will play out. The Thirteenth Warrior was in part based upon Beowulf. This new movie should have some nasty horror scenes if what I read in the epic poem is recreated by Hollywood. Grendel the monster comes in and attacks Beowulf warrior companions who are feinting sleep and kills some of them by ripping their heads off, Beowulf grips Grendel and tears off his claw.... well when the movie comes out you will see some blood spattering gore.
