The EA/38 Studios presentation will be on Thursday July 22nd from 1 pm to 2:15 pm, Room 6A. The panel will consist of the entire 38 Studios team including Todd McFarlane, R.A. Salvatore, Ken Rolston, and Founder Curt Schilling. Not much has been said about this ambitious title for some time, when last we saw our heroes they had just signed a publishing deal with EA. Also attendees of the panel will get a limited edition poster, so if you're interested you better show up early, because this is going to be HUGE!
For those that need to be refreshed, 38 Studios is the collaborative project, created and founded by ex-American Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher of the Boston Red Sox, Curt Schilling. Somehow Curt got together some of the greatest talent in media today and said "hey, let's make a video game". With comic artist Todd McFarlane (Spawn), New York Times Bestseller R.A. Salvatore (Forgotten Realms, Drizzt) and Ken Rolston best known for his work on The Elder Scrolls, we should be in for a video game treat that excites and tantalizes the senses. With their powers combined, these visionaries are bringing us two projects, Copernicus the MMOG and Project Mercury their new RPG.
Project Mercury is the codename for the exciting new RPG in development by legendary game designer Ken Rolston (Lead Designer of Morrowind, Oblivion) and the team at Big Huge Games. Set in a world imagined by creative giants R. A. Salvatore and Todd McFarlane, this single player game will introduce a vast open world to explore, giving players a first look at the exciting universe of Copernicus. Project Mercury will offer unparalleled RPG combat, seamlessly integrating magical and melee attacks into an innovative and visceral experience that will satisfy gamers both old and new. Featuring hundreds of quests and countless characters, creatures, weapons, and spells, Project Mercury will provide players with endless hours of intricate, immersive, and compelling adventure. Published by Electronic Arts, Project Mercury is poised to bring gamers into an amazing new world of RPG entertainment.
