Atari and (hnngh) Gamecock have announced that they’re going to be publishing an FPS first announced last year, Legendary: The Box, by Californian studio Spark Unlimited. That’s the same studio that is releasing World War II-gone-wrong shooter Turning Point: Fall Of Liberty via Codemasters. An old trailer, as well as some quotes and new plot details follow after the jump:
Blimey, that rubble-beast looks ace. Uzis and helicopters versus minotaurs and ghosts… it just might work?
“This is the project we want to be working on and it’s shaping up to be something amazing,” said Craig Allen, CEO of Spark Unlimited. “Legendary is the type of game we want every gamer, regardless of system allegiance, to get the chance to play. We’re taking our time to ensure optimum performance, regardless of platform.”
Legendary tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora’s Box. When he inadvertently opens it, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard’s unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures.
