Electronic Arts has announced today details on two games being developed in collaboration with famed film director Steven Spielberg.
The first game, a Nintendo Wii exclusive, will involve manipulating blocks with the Wiimote to take part in over a hundred different activities; it will also allow the player to create their own structures and activities. The game will feature single-player, cooperative multiplayer, and competitive multiplayer modes.
The second game is being billed as %26ldquo;more ambitious%26rdquo; than the first and will be made available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. According to EA, this action-adventure will feature a %26ldquo;touching and ever-changing relationship between you and a mysterious female character who holds the key to many futures.%26rdquo;
No release dates or titles were given for either project.
Regarding the projects, Spielberg said, %26ldquo;I am a gamer myself and game development has always intrigued me. Now I%26rsquo;ve been able to jump in and do it, enjoying the creative collaboration with the EALA team on our first two games and I feel we have two incredibly unique projects in development.%26rdquo;
Spielberg originally signed on with Electronic Arts in October 2005 to collaborate on three EA Los Angeles-developed projects. The third project was not detailed in EA's press release.
