Raven Software, the team behind Marvel Ultimate Alliance, will be developing the game for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, Nintendo DS, PS2 and PC. X-Men Origins: Wolverine will be an action-adventure following Wolverine through and beyond the movie's storyline. Set in a variety of real-world locales, it will challenge players to hone their animal instinct as they uncover hidden dangers, hunt and destroy enemies, and take on seemingly insurmountable situations while discovering the truth about Wolverine's tragic past.
It sounds like they'll be a heavy emphasis on combat with combo attacks, evasive maneuvers and a range of finishing moves all listed in the features.
"We have an amazing team with Raven Studios at the helm, creating what will undoubtedly be the quintessential, true-to-character Wolverine video game experience that fans have been craving," said Rob Kostich, vice president, global brand management, Activision Publishing, Inc.
"X-Men Origins: Wolverine amps up the action by bringing to life Wolverine's wholly unique skills such as his brute strength, regenerative mutant abilities, and indestructible adamantium claws and skeleton in an immersive experience that is fitting to one of the most enduring and popular characters of all time."
