GameSpot reports the long in development video game TOO HUMAN finally has an official release date. The Xbox 360 game will hit stores on August 19th in North America and August 29th in Europe.
In the works for almost 10 years by its developer Silicon Knights, the game was first announced at E3 in 1999.
HUMAN has players take on the role of the warrior Baldur--one of many characters based on Norse mythology--and then the player can choose to play one of several classes, including champion, defender, and bioengineer. The story chronicles the ongoing struggle between cybernetic Norse gods, the invading machine presence and mortal men. It features many Norse gods and characters from Norse mythology including Thor, Loki, Odin, Heimdall, Freyja, and Mimir.
Microsoft also revealed that TOO HUMAN will support co-op play through its campaign. The co-op play will be via its Xbox Live online service.
