Disney Interactive Studios announced today that they will release a Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End video game on May 22nd to coincide with the release of the much anticipated movie in theatres. The game will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and 3, Wii, PSP, Windows PC and Nintendo DS platforms.
Players will be able to "live and die by the sword" as they take on the roles of characters Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann in adventures and locations inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of Caribbean: At World's End.
"Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise will experience adventures inspired by the second and third films while going far beyond the events of those films," said Craig Relyea, vice president of marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. "With the action, excitement, unforgettable characters and expansive locations from the blockbuster films, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End will be the definitive 'Pirates' video game experience for fans. Our games go beyond the films to introduce legendary pirates, new locations and unique endings that will satisfy the pirate in each of us."
Designed to take advantage of features offered by each game system, the game will be of particular interest to Wii players, who will be able to swing and thrust their Wii Remote to simulate actual sword fighting.
The POTC: AWE game is being developed through Eurocom Entertainment Software and Amaze Entertainment.
