Activision Blizzard has announced it will publish X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a video game companion to the upcoming film of the same name.
Due to arrive alongside its cinematic counterpart in May 2009, X-Men Origins follows the early adventures of popular superhero Wolverine. Set before the recent movie trilogy, the game will be released on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, DS, PS2 and PSP.
Activision Blizzard's vice president of global brand management Rob Kostich said: We have an amazing team with Raven Studios at the helm, creating what will undoubtedly be the quintessential, true-to-character Wolverine video game experience that fans have been craving.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine amps up the action by bringing to life Wolverine's wholly unique skills such as his brute strength, regenerative mutant abilities, and indestructible adamantium claws and skeleton in an immersive experience that is fitting to one of the most enduring and popular characters of all time.”
