Set during the era between the two TRON films, TRON: Evolution conveys the story of significant events within the TRON mythology. The game focuses on an adventure across a massive digital world filled with high-mobility disc-based combat and advanced light cycles. The game's story takes place before the TRON: Legacy events and provides insight into the film's past. As an integrated entertainment experience, the film will reference elements of the game's story.
"We expect TRON: Evolution to be a premier action-focused game that both stands on its own and supplements a major event film," said Dan Tudge, vice president and general manager, Propaganda Games, developer of the project. "Because Propaganda Games is based in Vancouver, which was the site of the film's principal photography, we were able to leverage the proximity to continuously collaborate with the filmmakers and ensure authenticity between the two projects."
TRON: Legacy film director Joseph Kosinski consulted on the vision for the debut video game trailer, which includes computer graphics that were created by the same company that will provide the film's CG animations. Kosinski will advise on the game's vision during 2010 to ensure accuracy with the film. In addition to directing TRON: Legacy, Kosinski is renowned in the video games industry as having directed prolific feature film-quality game trailers for major product releases.
"The collaboration between the video game development studio and the film creators is exceptional," said Sean Bailey, producer, "TRON: Legacy." "From the ongoing discussions between the filmmakers and the game developers, TRON: Evolution should enhance and expand the mythology and the world of TRON: Legacy."
As part of the connection between the game and film, actress Olivia Wilde stars as Quorra in TRON: Evolution. Wilde's voice and likeness as Quorra will provide players with another direct link to the film as they discover how earlier events within the world of TRON shape her character's future.
