As you could tell from the first screens, Ninja Theory’s Enslaved looks to be quite different than most post-apocalyptic games. The trailer just cements the fact, and you have to dig how fluid and downright pretty everything is.

It looks a bit like someone mashed the adventure gameplay of Uncharted with a Gears of War setting and painted it all with an anime brush. Pretty interesting look to it, that’s for sure.




Enslaved takes players on a gripping, surprise-filled journey as two dissimilar characters form an uneasy union in order to survive their way through a perilous, post-apocalyptic America. In Enslaved, players take on the role of Monkey, a strong and athletic, yet solitary figure, who been captured by one of the mysteri­ous slave ships, which harvest the remaining population and take them out west never to return. Trip, a technologically savvy young woman who has also been imprisoned by the same ship, manages to escape. She quickly realizes that Monkey, with his raw strength and power, is her only hope to survive the perilous journey back to her home. She hacks into a slave headband and fits it on Monkey, linking them together – if she dies, he dies… Her journey has now become his and Monkey must now travel west alongside Trip as they traverse a demolished world, under constant threat of capture and mortal peril.
 

As we mentioned in the other article, Alex Garland (Sunshine) cowrote the script and Andy Serkis is doing motion capture and providing the voice for Monkey.

Namco Bandai is set to release Enslaved late 2010 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
