: : : : : Heavenly Sword

[edit] Background

Emotionally charged, stunningly beautiful and delivering unprecedented dramatic character performance, Heavenly Sword showcases the power of Playstation 3. A dramatic tale of revenge sees Nariko, a fiery red-haired heroine embark on a quest for vengeance against an invading King and his army. The story builds around the ancient Heavenly Sword which once belonged to a powerful deity. It can never be wielded by a mortal without it draining their life-force, killing them within hours.
When the invading King (played by Andy Serkis) destroys the warrior clan that guards the Heavenly Sword, the clan leader's daughter, Nariko, takes up the sword in a desperate fight for survival. Nariko must now pay the ultimate price as she embarks on one last mission of vengeance against the King and his army before her life is finally drawn to a close.

[edit] Features

  • The Heavenly Sword itself can Transform into Three Distinct Stances.
  • The Combat Engine can Scale Up: From sophisticated one on one encounters to one on many, where enemies employ intelligent squad based dynamics, right up to combat against battalions pushing real time gameplay and AI to unprecedented new levels.
  • Physics based Combat: Players can sweep debris against opponents, kick tables to halt an oncoming surge of fighters, smash the enemy into the scenery or throw bodies into other enemies using aftertouch controls.
  • Wide Range of Objects and Weaponry: Including multi-skewering spears and devastatingly explosive bazookas.
  • Creative in game Cinematography coupled with real time story evolvement and amazing set pieces makes the action feel like a blockbuster action movie and takes combat gameplay to new heights.
