Watchmen Episode 2 coming to PC after all
[UPDATE] The End Is Nigh will get compiled retail releases for Xbox 360 and PS3 this July; Warner Bros. reverses self on Friday, says next installment coming to PC after all.
Earlier this year, the movie comic-book Watchmen hit theaters, accompanied by the first episode of a two-part prequel game, The End Is Nigh, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today revealed some plans for The End Is Nigh Part 2 on the PS3 and 360, saying the game would be released in conjunction with the DVD and Blu-ray launches of Watchmen in July, and not only in downloadable form.
Both parts of The End Is Nigh will be combined and offered at retail as a stand-alone title on the Xbox 360. For PS3 owners, Warner is offering Watchmen: The End Is Nigh The Complete Experience, which will include the director's-cut version of the film and both halves of the episodic game. Part 2 of The End Is Nigh will also be available on its own through Xbox Live Arcade or the PlayStation Network.
[UPDATE] On Thursday, it looked like gamers who invested $20 in the first Watchmen episode wouldn't have the option of finishing the series. That's when Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed to GameSpot the episode would not be released for the PC. On Friday, though, following reports on sites such as the Big Download, WBIE reversed itself, announcing the game would be available as PC DLC after all.
Developed by Deadline Games (Total Overdose, Chili Con Carnage), The End Is Nigh is a 3D action brawler featuring split-screen cooperative play for two. The game is set before the events of the film and follows film protagonists Rorschach and Nite Owl during their days as a crime-fighting duo cleaning up the streets. The game is intended to fill in backstory alluded to but never discussed in any detail in the comic and the movie.
