We're the Princes of the Universe! YA!

If you know what film and show that song comes from then you know what this post is about and you might be excited already. If you don't know it's Queen and it's from....oh now that wouldn't be any fun would it. 

  Eidos Interactive announced the upcoming release of


for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Games for Windows.


Based on the cult film and television franchise, Highlander lets players experience immortality as they take control of Owen MacLeod in a third person action adventure spanning 2000 years of history.

Embark on a unique journey through time, fighting a variety of enemies in highly detailed and destructible worlds. Experience first-hand, the bloody combat of the medieval highlands of Scotland, the discipline and ruthlessness of facing the Samurai in Japan and even the no-holds-barred combat of modern-day New York.

In Highlander you must master the powers and abilities of an Immortal including; the ability to use your body as a conduit to unleash electricity or fire at enemies, impaling yourself on enemy weapons to disarm them and even leaping from tall buildings to your apparent death on the streets below to avoid enemy attacks. Players can upgrade their own abilities by defeating other Immortals in combat. Once defeated, by removing an Immortal’s head from their body, generates the Quickening; which is the ability to absorb the knowledge and strength of the defeated.

• 4 distinct environments and 18 missions - Play in NY (near future), Pompeii before the eruption, Highlands in the medieval ages and Japan during the Samurai era - Epic Engine for high quality graphics

• 3 weapons to master - Katana, Claymore and Double Sword

• 9 navigations features - Dagger climbing, Ropes, Dynamic ladders, Swan dive, Freefall, Traverse climbing, Cannonball, Beams, Ziplines

• Quickening techniques - Resurrection, Chi balance (stamina), Weapon Mastery (Fireblade, Wind Fury, Stone Armor), Channelling the Source (charge up for powerful attacks)

• 77 characters - New main character – Owen Macleod, Familiar characters from series/movies (Methos)

Highlander is written by David Abramowitz (writer of the Highlander TV series) and uses the Unreal Engine 3 licensed from Epic Games, Inc. Developed by Widescreen in France, the game is set for release later this year on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Games for Windows.

I believe a "Holy Crap! It's about Time" is in order here. This game was actually announced like a bazillion years ago and seemed to languish in development hel for a very long time. It finally looks like it's on track and ready to behead.
