Ubi Get Talkative On Lost Game


After Jack ending season 3 telling yelling “We have to go back” it now finally seems that Ubi are the ones going back and are finally talking about their game based on Lost, which they first got the rights to almost a whole year ago.

With the Comic-Con confrence approching many people spoke out and aired there thought on the game, a game which has now been confirmed to be a third-person action/adventure, that will have you take on the role af a survivor of Oceanic Flight 815. It is unknown if the playable character will be one of the known survivors or instead will be an unknown castaway that will ‘pull a Paulo and Nikki’ and appear out of frikken nowhere!

Ubisoft is thrilled to be collaborating with ABC to develop this phenomenal television series into an interactive experience,” said Helene Juguet, US senior director of marketing for Ubisoft. “Ubisoft has worked closely with ABC Studios and the show’s producers to create a compelling storyline that has the same mystery, adventure and intensity fans of the show have come to expect from the ‘Lost’ brand.

We’re very excited to be working with Ubisoft to develop a game that captures the same surprise and intrigue as ‘Lost,’” said Bruce Gersh, senior vice president, business development, ABC Entertainment and ABC Studios. “The series has such a loyal audience, and we’re happy to bring fans an additional way to interact and engage with their favorite characters.

The sense of adventure and suspense that we strive for in the show is also captured in the Lost video game,” said Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, executive producers of the ‘Lost’ television series. “Ubisoft has done a fantastic job and come up with a game that is visually amazing and imaginative both on its own and as an extension of the world of the show.

Probably the most interesting part of the games reveal was a new trailer for the game, now available to download over on 3D gamers, which showcased a brand new hatch, one currently unseen in the TV show, which had the familiar Dharma logo accompanied by a lightning bolt symbol. The trailer told viewers they would be shown they way if they “find us”.

The Lost video game will be shipping in first quarter of 2008 for the Xbox 360, the PS3 and PC. That could mean the game could possibly debut a few weeks before Season 4 begins.
