Vivendi Games, through their Blizzard Entertainment and Sierra Entertainment studios, today unveiled their E3 related line up of upcoming video game titles. Many of these titles have expected release dates of this fall and beyond.
Debuting from Blizzard Entertainment, said Vivendi, is a new World of Warcraft expansion pack for the highly popular MMORPG. Dubbed World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, this upcoming PC title brings forth rumors amongst a fragile peace that the Burning Legion’s war against Azeroth has been rekindled. More details on this, including details for the beta test, will be released later this year.
From Sierra Entertainment come several highly anticipated titles, including Scarface: The World Is Yours, Eragon, World in Conflict and F.E.A.R. 360. Scarface, which is planning for a fall release on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, is an open-ended action title which puts players in the role of Tony Montana, brings together an â€œall-starâ€ Hollywood cast and has a script drawn up by writer David McKenna of American History X.
Eragon, coming out this fall as well for a variety of platforms, is based on the best-selling book and upcoming 20th Century Fox film of the same name. World in Conflict, coming next spring for the PC, is a strategy title which offers up a Cold War scenario penned by author Larry Bond and features destructible 3D battlefields. F.E.A.R. 360, set to debut by the end of the year, is the Xbox 360 version of a popular 2005 paranormal action thriller set in the first person.
