Website for the videogame "The Mummy™: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor".
Sierra Entertainment today announced the development of The Mummy™: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
, a video game based on this summer's movie from Universal Pictures. The game, which will mirror the fast-paced action and adventure depicted in the film, is being developed by Eurocom Studios for the Wii™ home video game console and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and by A2M for Nintendo DS™. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
game was created through a licensing agreement with Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group.
"Sierra Entertainment is pleased to partner with Universal to deliver an exciting extension to this popular film franchise," said Al Simone, senior vice president, Global Marketing, Sierra Entertainment. "Developed in collaboration with the film's creative talent, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
video game will add another opportunity for players to experience the thrill and excitement of this adventure favorite."
In the third-person action-adventure game The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, players will take on the roles of Rick O'Connell and his son, Alex (played by Brendan Fraser and Luke Ford, respectively, in the film). Gamers will follow the lead characters on their harrowing journey - across exotic locations from ancient Chinese catacombs to beautiful, but dangerous, Himalayan peaks - to defeat the revived servants of the Dragon Emperor (Jet Li). The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor allows players to switch seamlessly between gunplay and hand-to-hand melee attacks, and also features a fast and fluid combat system and an arsenal of weaponry that can be used to vanquish the many bone-chilling enemies players will face during their journey. Fans of the upcoming Universal Pictures film, directed by Rob Cohen and set to hit theatres this August 1, will fight their way through The Mummy universe by utilizing combat, puzzle-solving and hieroglyphic decoding gameplay elements. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
video game is expected to be available at North American retailers July 22, 2008. For more information, please visit the game's official website at www.mummyvideogame.com
