What's inside Pandora's box?Atari and Gamecock Media Group has confirmed that their new first person shooter, Legendary will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC when it releases in Summer 2008. Developed by Spark Unlimited, Legendary is a first-person shooter set in a world torn asunder after all the beasts of myth are unleashed upon it.
“This exciting and original title takes the lead in our Atari Shooter line up,” said Mathias Hautefort, Executive Vice President of publishing and production, Atari. “Producing a game of this quality and scale is a major undertaking, but the highly talented team at Spark Unlimited is more than up to the job.”
“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.
