Falling Skies Game Release Date Set For October After Season Four Finale: Prepare For A New Breed Of War In Tactical Sci-Fi RPG [VIDEO]
The video game adaptation of the hit TNT series Falling Skies for the Xbox 360 and PS3 systems will be getting a release this October, publisher Bandai Namco just announced. Steam support will also be available.
No specific date yet has been given. The game is a tactical strategy RPG where a rag-tag band of humans have to take down the alien invasion force using the equivalent of stone knives and bearskins.
"Players will dive into a world gone wrong and command a squad of recently-rescued survivors who have been recruited into the human resistance fighting to save the planet. The team will engage in covert tactical operations against the Espheni fighting to survive against alien invaders while also rescuing and recruiting survivors to the join the 2nd Mass." Expect a lot of familiar faces, including the Mason boys. I do hope Cochise makes an appearance, as the more work Doug Jones gets, the better the world is.
The show stars Noah Wyle as Tom Mason, a history teacher turned freedom fighter in the wake of the Espheni invasion. The series was recently picked up for a fifth and final season of post-apocalyptic goodness. The fourth season has been a great improvement over previous ones. It lacks the endless wheel-spinning the show was known for.
A new trailer has also been released showing off some tense human vs mech action. The mechs are some of the most dominant forces in the show and are rarely defeated by simple guns. Hopefully the game will allow players to out-think the technologically advanced enemy and not just rely on who has the biggest weapon.
