Watchmen: The End Is Nigh

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that the first episode of “Watchmen: The End is Nigh,” the downloadable game series based on the classic graphic novel, will be released on March 4 over the Xbox Live Marketplace and for PC, and March 5 over the PlayStation Network.

The game allows players to take on the roles of either Rorschach or Nite Owl II in single-player or cooperative multi-player. Rorschach and Nite Owl are the only playable characters in the game’s first episode, which comprises six “chapters.”

“The End Is Nigh” takes place during the Crimebusters era (but it has been renamed to The Watchmen for the film adaptation), when Rorschach and Nite Owl II were crime-fighting partners before the Keene Act, which outlawed masked vigilantes, passed in 1977.

Cut-scenes that look like animated comic panels, similar to those seen in the Watchmen motion comics, bookend each chapter, and two of the film’s actors, Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earle Haley, provide their voices for their characters Nite Owl and Rorschach, respectively.

The game features a mix of “Beat ‘Em Up” and puzzle game play, with the two characters having different strengths and abilities. Rorschach is faster but weaker and makes use of improvised weapons like crowbars and chairs; Nite Owl is slower but stronger and uses technological abilities, such as “screecher bombs.” The characters must work cooperatively to pass puzzles and defeat enemies.

Deadline Games developed “The End Is Nigh” which was written by Len Wein, the comic’s original editor. Dave Gibbons, Watchmen’s co-creator and illustrator, and Zack Snyder, the film's director, were also advisors to the project.
