X-Men Origins: Wolverine First Gameplay Trailer & Live Chat Tomorrow at Noon Pacific

Dan Vondrak's Avatar + Posted by Dan Vondrak on Mar 10, 2009 // Project Lead - X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Raven Software

Hello PlayStation.Blog readers! My name is Dan Vondrak and I’m the Project Lead on X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Though tomorrow is a BIG day – we get to chat here in the Blog’s fourth live chat – today is an even bigger one: I’m stoked to announce that the FIRST gameplay trailer for Wolverine has been released, and viewable below!

Check out the Wolverine game you heard about at New York Comic-Con – the most brutal, most bad-ass portrayal of everyone’s favorite X-Man. Skydiving into his foes, taking impossible risks, using regeneration and feral sense in the way only Wolvey can…the entire team at Raven has focused on one thing above all: true-to-character authenticity. Whether or not you’re a comic fan, that translates into epic gameplay.

Alright dudes – hope you enjoyed the game’s trailer “Uncaged”. I’ll be around tomorrow at noon where you can ask me about the game, what you saw in the trailer, and even more importantly, what you didn’t. Trust me when I say this trailer is just a taste of what’s to come. ;)

-Dan

Sweet,
I still remember the Good Old Days in the official Raven Soft Forums, with MRJ and the likes…
To bad you shut those down for no good apparent reason…

Looks good. It’s about time someone translated the raw brutality of a character like Wolvie into a game. As long as the violence stays brutal and true to the character, I’m in.

Now, if give can me a faithful video game version of Faust: Love of The Damned, I’ll buy every damn copy I see…

Is raven the team that did quake 4?

Oh… wated to add- if I hear that any live action footage is used anywhere in the game, I’ll be skipping it. HUGE pet peeve. I really hope your team isn’t that lazy.

    Ha ha. There is no live footage in the game. But we do have some amazing Blur FMVs that look almost like live footage. That adamantium tank scene is just one piece Blur did for us — the guys are amazing.

Looks really sweet way to go Raven thanks guys. You guys made X-Men legends too right? cause if so then i have high hopes for this game.
Please deliver I love marvel stuff.

    Yep we made X-Men Legends. Actually the same team that did X-Men Legends 1 & 2, and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was responsible for making Wolverine.

    We are huge Wolverine fans, so we jumped at the opportunity.

looks real cool

+ xaos on March 10th, 2009 at 12:38 pm said:

Looks really fun, and I’ve been VERY pleased with Raven’s previous forays into the Marvel Universe (disappointed you guys aren’t on Ultimate Alliance 2, but hopefully you’ve laid enough groundwork for a solid sequel to be picked up by the new folks). Can’t wait to get my hands on this game and see what other characters show up :)

Lets hope for a GOOD wolverine game this time. Since the other wolverine games are average at best.

the art style looks a bit familiar… is it using the COD engine

    + Dan Vondrak on March 10th, 2009 at 1:41 pm said:

    Nope — Unreal 3

    Great engine. We had to add a whole combat node system on top of it to change it from a shooter to a melee action game, but with our previous experience we mde the conversion quickly — turned out great.

+ ryanc08 on March 10th, 2009 at 12:49 pm said:

I enjoyed the trailer, but one thing is holding me back from really getting excited about this game, its an x-men game and they have a terrible track record, like batman games, or superman games. I try to stay away from comic games, but maybe this game will change my mind

Why is the guy from Australia starring in his own game?


24

+ AguilarX on March 10th, 2009 at 12:56 pm said:

trailer looks awesome hopefully this will live up to be one of the good xmen games out there. prototype who? more like inFamous and wolverine is a must buy for me now.

Wow, that trailer looks really solid, never really was into X-Men, but maybe I could get into this.

Did he reflect a rocket back at a car?

+ nuness1988 on March 10th, 2009 at 1:33 pm said:

Looks cool. I hope it’s M rated though because the best Wolverine stories have always been the most violent. My favorite is Enemy of the State by Mark Millar.

Shoot, I won’t get home till like 3:30 CST so I’m gonna be late by an hour and a half…

I can’t wait to talk about the game — it’s been so long and we can’t wait to show we’re doing something special with our beloved Wolverine!

I’ll answer the rest of your questions at the chat tomorrow.

Thanks guys.

Wait you guys using the Unreal 3 engine? This game already fail on the PS3 if that the case. Games using the unreal engine fail on the PS3.

As for you guys. I would like to thank you for give me such as amazing experience with X-MEN Legend 1+2. Those are my two favorite superhero games of all times. Marvel Ultimate Alliance wasn’t even on par with those two games.

EPIC. I so want this game :)

+ SlashZaku on March 10th, 2009 at 2:04 pm said:

Game looks great. Gameplay also looks pretty fun (can’t say the same for the last Wolverine game, Wolverine’s Revenge) so Kudos for topping that area. As for another user’s post pertaining to the Unreal Engine 3, my heart kind of sank too at hearing that (although the game does look great) knowing that a large portion of UE3 titles run sluggish on the PS3. I’m sure we’re past that point though or atleast I would hope…

+ xaos on March 10th, 2009 at 2:11 pm said:

I guess it should be taken as a huge com;iment to Blur that a previous poster thought it was FMV ;)

+ zombiefriend on March 10th, 2009 at 2:19 pm said:

honestly, this looks like it could get quckly boring and repetitive, but idk :/

on a side note, some DLC for the comic yellow outfit would be sweet

Damn, that was a great trailer right there.
I’m praying here that the game turns out as great as this trailer.. Or better!
