In support of the Watchmen movie adaptation coming out next March, Warner Bros. Interactive is planning to publish two downloadable games for DC's next comic flick. The games will be made for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC platforms.
Developed by Deadline Games, who created the delicious Chili Con Carnage for the PSP, the first Watchmen game episode will be released simultaneously with the film's release and the second will follow the DVD debut. According to Variety, Warner wanted to deviate from the usual console video game-movie release and the company felt that the upcoming downloadable titles will serve fans better. "We don’t want a low-quality console game that will get lost at retail," said by Warner Bros. Interactive Senior Production VP Samantha Ryan.
Written by David Hayter, who was the voice of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid game series, Watchmen is set to hit theaters on March 6, 2009. Check out the video after the cut.
