Sources close to film director Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming videogame project with THQ have said that the upcoming title will actually be an RPG trilogy. According to MMOMFG, the director of Pan’s Labyrinth visited the office of development studio Volition in Illinois, where it was revealed that the series will be “along the lines of Mass Effect.” Other details from sources confirm that the trilogy will have Locecraftian horror themes and that the plot will involve inter-dimensional travel.
Volition has worked with THQ in the past on titles, like Red Faction and Saint’s Row. Guillermo del Toro is expected to officially reveal more about his upcoming game project during the VGA Awards next month.
