Tron: Evolution: When a Tie-In Looks Awesome

| 18 Jun 2010 18:30

The new trailer for Tron: Evolution looks amazing, which isn't something any of us expected from a game that's a movie tie-in.

Tron: Legacy is an upcoming film about a world based on videogames and computer programs. Tron: Evolution, meanwhile, is a game based on the movie. Based on the trailer, the game looks like it's going to be just as action-packed as the film.

As of right now, not much of the game's plot has been revealed. Based on Bruce Boxleitner's narration, players apparently aren't going to play as Sam Flynn. Instead, they'll take on the role of a program created to help fight off the forces of evil. The trailer shows light cycle racing, vehicle combat, free-running, and disc combat. On top of that, it's implied that the player will receive some help from an unspecified user who appears at the end of the video.

The Tron franchise is certainly getting some star treatment from Disney lately. After years of a hinted sequel to the 1982 film and the popularity of 2004's Tron 2.0, fans are getting a proper movie follow-up this December. As a result, Disney Interactive is releasing Evolution in November for both the 360 and the PS3.

Tron: Evolution is being developed by Propaganda Games, the studio behind 2008's Turok and the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned. While some footage of the gameplay has been released so far, the title is going to be on major display at Comic-Con in San Diego, where more details are expected to be revealed.
