Total Recall MMO Movie Tie-in Revealed
Sony Pictures has revealed that an MMO based on the upcoming Total Recall film remake is currently in development, and is due to be released around the same time as the movie.
The online browser-based game is being developed by Chinese online gaming company ZQGame, and will be published by Los Angeles-based See Games.
Due to be released around August 3, 2012, the game will be free-to-play with micro-transactions. Gameplay will involved PVP and PVE game modes, along with a "collaborative memory quest" system.
Corey Redmond, president of See Games, said of the announcement, "Total Recall is an action-filled sci-fi property that expands perfectly as a deep and immersive browser-based game experience."
Michael Zhang, overseas executive vice president of ZQGame, added, "Working closely with [See Games] in the development of the Total Recall online game is an unprecedented opportunity."
"Our efforts and triumphs in the Chinese online space have allowed us to surpass expectations and obtain such great projects that open the door to the worldwide market. With the closure of this deal, we have raised the bar on the viability of high-end China-US collaboration."
