Gamers who want more than Tron 2.0's built-in level editor can offer are in luck. Buena Vista Interactive says it will release an extensive mod toolkit for the film-based game. The toolkit allows gamers to create new TRON 2.0 levels, maps, skins, weapons, and voice packs for the game. In addition, players will be able to exchange their mods on the TRON 2.0 Web site beginning in November. The mod toolkit is available on the Tron 2.0 Web site and on GameSpot.
Tron 2.0 is set in the same realm as Tron, the 1982 sci-fi cult classic about a software engineer who is sucked into a computer world. There, sentient programs fight and die in gladiatorial contests which appear to be mere computer games to human eyes. The game, a first-person shooter, follows a similar plot line but adds new characters like data wraiths and ICPs (Intrusion Countermeasure Programs). It also features the voice of Bruce Boxleitner, co-star of the original film, and X2 star Rebecca Romijn-Stamos.
