News: There can be only one... except there will be three versions.



First revealed in a financial report nearly a year ago, Eidos has officially announced that a Highlander game will be coming to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime this year. The game is being developed by Widescreen and it will use the Unreal Engine 3.

The Highlander game is being written by David Abramowitz, a writer from the Highlander TV show, and it will cover the 2000 years of the life of the heretofore unseen Owen MacLeod, an ancestor of Duncan MacLeod. During this life players will travel from the medieval highlands of Scotland, to the days of the Samurai in Japan to modern-day New York.

The game will make use of many of the signature moments from the Highlander series. Players will have to control fire and lightning as well as taking the heads of Immortals to bring about The Quickening to gain their strength and knowledge.



?Highlander itself is a cult classic. Practically everyone has heard of it and we wanted to offer the first ever next-generation videogame of the franchise,? said Darren Barnett, Development Director, Eidos. ?Having a central character that is immortal and has roamed the earth for 2000 years opens up so many gameplay opportunities in terms of story, environments, predicaments and enemies ? Highlander is a thrilling adventure for both fans of the franchise and fans of explosive, fast-paced third person action games.?

We'll have more on Highlander soon.
