[REC] First Person Shooter in the Works!

It was announced today by our friends over at Bloody-Disgusting that Filmax and Tonika Games have reached an agreement and the [REC] franchise is soon going to be turned into a video game.

Can you imaging how intense it's going to be to fight off one of the infected from [REC] with a fireman's axe?

The game is going to faithfully reproduce the story from the movies. Each movie is going to have its own world or level. The first two that are going to be released are [REC] and [REC] 2, and the others will come out when [REC] 3 and 4 are released. The game is going to be developed using the Unity3D engine that is capable of making games for PlayStation 3, iPhone and Android. It is going to be a "gender-based" FPS that will use the Unity3D engine to recreate the immersive experience of the movies in game play. So far, word is that the game play is going to be mission based with objectives to be met, and will be set at locations from the movies, such as the apartment complex from [REC] and [REC] 2.

Dynamic lighting and surround sound is going to be incorporated in the game, in an effort to make it as terrifying an experience as watching the movies. Weapon choices will be different for each character and scenario/mission, and it's sure to be a bloody violent, yet scary good time.

[REC] the game will be available for play on the iPhone, iPad, PC, Blackberry and Android tablet, in English, French, Castilian, Italian and German. The scheduled price is 2.99 Euros, and it is currently projected to be released for PC and Mac in January 2012, and can be purchased at the official website, or at the App Store for iPhone and iPad and Android market for the Android tablet.

You can sign up to be a beta tester for [REC] the game at the official website: rec-thegame.com
