The War of the Worlds coming to the PC

Yesterday, we reported that Inversion is most probably coming to the PC. Good news, right? Well, get ready everyone as we have another big surprise for you. Other Ocean Interactive’s 2D action-adventure game, based on The War of the Worlds, is coming to our beloved platform. Yeap, it’s official. The War of the Worlds is coming to the PC. Naturally, no release date has been announced as of yet. Still though, this is great news as another console exclusive game is finally coming to the PC so here is hoping that it won’t be a simple and mediocre port.
The War of the Worlds is a dark and breathtaking new vision of the classic H.G. Wells novel, retold as a single player, 2D action-adventure. The gameplay narrative parallels the timeline and events from the 1953 movie adaptation, but introduces a new story arc, characters, locations, and sub-plots.
With gameplay paying homage to classic cinematic platformers such as Flashback, Out of This World and Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, players follows the exploits of an unknown everyman struggling to escape the Martian invasion of London and rescue his family. Forced to think through insurmountable odds, players will outsmart an army of alien tripods and other menacing war machines as they make their way through a landscape of total devastation.

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
