Edge of Twilight approaches PS3 in 2009

SouthPeak Games adds Sony's console to Xbox 360, PC editions of Fuzzyeyes' steampunk-inspired adventure game next year.

In August, Australia-based Fuzzyeyes Studio revealed it would be parlaying its time spent making games about the fast-food industry into Edge of Twilight, a stylized, postapocalyptic third-person action adventure then slated to arrive for the Xbox 360 and PC at an undetermined point in the future. Today, Edge of Twilight took on a bit more focus when SouthPeak Games announced that Fuzzyeyes will be creating a PlayStation 3 version of the game as well.

As with Codemasters' recently announced Damnation, Edge of Twilight will run with a steampunk aesthetic. Players will navigate a mechanized fantasy world in which society is divvied up into separate dimensions of night and day. Players will assume the role of an ostracized bounty hunter named Lex who must find his place in a world lorded over by the industrialized Atherns and the spiritual Lithern.

Gameplay details remain elusive, but Fuzzyeyes has previously said that Lex will have different abilities depending on whether he is in the night or day realms. SouthPeak also noted today that the game would benefit from the publisher's license of Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3.

Vexx89...I thought the exact same thing, no offense to PS3 fans of course, it was the thought that came through my mind when I saw the title of the news. Thank god it ain't true...phew...

I really hope to see exclusives dwindling. I'm a 360 owner, and I do want to see more 360 games come to PS3. Why? So I can be guaranteed a sequal! I'd like to see Mass Effect and Bioshock go to the PS3 so we can definitely get sequals to those games.

I hope to see more news about this game, but so far it doesn't sound so bad.

See? Devs are bringing games to the PS3 because the developement is getting easier, and the PS3 fanbase is growing rapidly. Good to see.

Heh, I'm always up for more Steampunk games. I wonder if there'll ever be a re-make of Arcanum...

Finally, Steampunk gets some proper recognition in video games!

So developpers finally start to realize that a year from now PS3 will be leading and act accordingly. About time.

In real life, the future of the planet and the resulting toll on life is so grim, humans feel it in their bones, in a deep and dark place in our minds: the primal knowledge that without a healthy world, all flesh will decay. So post-apocalyptic stuggles are popular subject matter for interactive media. It's one part dark curiosity - how will their vision of a ruined future compare to your own? And one part hope: mankind rebuilds and continues to persist, even in a bleak future. Toss in some stealth camo and plasma grenades, and it's the perfect allure for the casually concerned youth of today.

What's up with this recent trend with alternate history/steam punk games? Not that I have any problems with that, just so long as the games are actually decent.

We'll just have to see how this game ends up. It might be good considering, starting this year it would seem for me, the PS3 is going to get amazing games suck as Haze and Killzone 2. Can't wait.
