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.
