Child of Eden out in Q2
Child of Eden is a “multi-sensory shooter” and spiritual successor to Rez, which is coming to the Xbox in a Kinect-powered version (although it can also be played with normal controllers, and is set for the PS3, too).
It was thought the game might be released next month, at the close of the first quarter, but it seems that the date has slipped to the second quarter now, according to a report on Videogamer.com.
In other words, the Child of Eden probably won’t be born until May or June, slightly disappointing news for those who were looking forward to seeing what Kinect can do in terms of more core gaming.
The shooter will be controlled by the player’s movement – if you have Kinect, that is, but sadly no Move support has been implemented on the PS3.
A “kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals” is promised, and a “landmark game experience” no less.
One other interesting development is news which has popped up across the net that the Kinect version will actually make use of regular controllers as well.
You’ll be able to place up to four controllers about your person and their feedback vibration effects will be turned on, to give players some solid feedback from the game.
You can stick them in your pockets, sleeves, hung around your neck on a cord perhaps, anywhere. Except there, of course. Or there. Don’t forget someone else will have to use these controllers afterwards.
There are no comments yet. Why not be the first to speak your mind.
