Electronic Arts Ships Warpath Jurassic Park For The Playstation From Dreamworks Interactive
First Fighting Game to Feature Head-to-Head Dinosaurs in the World of Jurassic Park
Warpath Jurassic Park takes a fresh approach to the traditional fighting game genre, says Emily Kenner, product manager at Electronic Arts. The game offers an array of unique dinosaur against dinosaur action scenes, which provides a challenging and fun game experience.
Players can choose from a total of 14 different dinosaurs and fight in 14 visually stunning 3-D arenas, most of which are modeled after actual movie locales. The recognizable fighting arenas include the Visitor s Center, Helicopter Pad and 76 Station. Gamers will find a variety of diverse and well-known predators from the Jurassic Park world including the popular Tyrannosaurus Rex, Styracosaurus and Triceratops. Helping to bring another layer of excitement and interest in the game is the addition of an array of newly discovered dinosaurs such as the Mega Raptor and Giganotosaurus.
Each of the dinosaurs will feature more than thirty moves, some of which are signature moves. Players will be able to snap, claw, rake, bite, grab, execute combination moves, reversals and slams. Dinosaurs will be able to eat Artificial Intelligence (AI) characters and animals for increased health and power.
Warpath Jurassic Park offers many compelling features and gameplay modes including arcade, choice, practice, survival, team, frenzy and versus. Battles will be supercharged with real-time wounding effects, shadows and lighting, rising dust, blood and environmental effects such as lightening. To make fights even more exciting, players can inflict damage on an opponent and win a match by strategically taking advantage of the destructible objects in the environment. For instance, gamers can throw their opponent on an electric fence or lead an opponent into an exploding oil drum. In addition, bone crunching sounds, primal tribal music and an original orchestral score help to escalate the adrenaline rush of the game.
Warpath Jurassic Park utilizes the latest technology for the PlayStation system, specifically Hierarchical Modeling Data (HMD). HMD technology allows for more life-like dinosaur movements. Additionally, HMD technology allows for realistic single skin textures, which helps to enhance real-time lighting and shadowing on the dinosaurs as they move throughout the environment. For example, players will see fluid movements and the reflective color of lights on the skin of the dinosaur.
Warpath Jurassic Park for the PlayStation, co-published by Electronic Arts and DreamWorks Interactive and developed by Black Ops, supports up to two-players via single-screen and is dual shock compatible. The game carries a T (Teen) ESRB rating and has an MSRP of US $39.95. More information on the game is available at http://www.warpathgame.com.
