Enslaved - Preview Xbox 360 and PS3


Enslaved: Odyssey To The West is set 150 years from now, in a post-apocalyptic future America. Players take on the role of Monkey, who has been captured by a slave ship, which harvests the remaining population after a major war.

There he meets Trip, a young woman who has also been imprisoned. They manage to escape and land in New York, where she quickly realises that Monkey, with his strength and power, is her only hope to survive the journey home. She hacks into a slave headband and fits it on Monkey, linking them together - if she dies, he dies. The two characters form an uneasy union and work together as they travel west across the US, using a mixture of brains and brawn.

Enslaved has an ensemble of British talent who contributed to the game's development. Andy Serkis (of Lord of the Rings fame) plays the role of Monkey, whilst the game also boasts a screenplay written by Alex Garland and a soundtrack by Mercury Music prize winner, Nitin Sawhney. The game's developers, Ninja Theory, also worked on the acclaimed Heavenly Sword, and are based in the UK.

Enslaved is set for release on 8th October 2010
