Titan Quest, Iron Lore's first CRPG title, is now officially anounced.
Brian Sullivan's New Action RPG Slated to Bring Mythical Ancient Worlds to Life in 2006
CALABASAS HILLS, Calif., May 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- THQ Inc. (Nasdaq: THQI - News) today announced Titan Quest for Windows PC. An all-new action role-playing game (RPG) set in the ancient mythical worlds of Greece and Egypt, Titan Quest is developed by Iron Lore Entertainment, a new studio led by Age of Empires co-creator Brian Sullivan. Titan Quest is scheduled to release in 2006 and will be unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
"The extremely talented team at Iron Lore is focused on delivering the same level of innovation and creativity gamers have come to expect from Brian Sullivan," said Philip Holt, senior vice president of product development, THQ. "We look forward to sharing their vision for the ultimate in addictive, fast-action RPG gaming at E3 next week."
"Our primary goal for Titan Quest is to create an experience that blends the best of action, role-playing and adventure genres," said Brian Sullivan, co-founder, president and lead designer, Iron Lore Entertainment. "The lush ancient worlds of Greece and Egypt provide an extraordinary backdrop with beautiful locations, fascinating mythical creatures and age-old mysteries. We are extremely proud that Titan Quest will mark Iron Lore's first release."
In Titan Quest, players will take an epic journey through such fabled locations as the Parthenon, the maze of Knossos, the Great Pyramids and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. With an arsenal of more than a thousand pieces of unique and legendary equipment, players will have to overcome terrifying monsters and mythical beasts in their quest to save humankind from the Titans. Players can develop their character through a flexible class system and highly customizable skills. Multi-player mode allows players to share their journey through the rich, story-driven campaign.
Okay, I can see Egypt in there because ancient Egypt is fairly neat, but tossing in Greek stuff? Then again, I guess they'd have to come up with a name without Titan in the title for that.
