After working on three straight third person action games based on licensed properties (Star Trek Deep Space Nine: The Fallen, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Indiana Jones and the Emperorís Tomb) developer The Collective is creating a console action game thatís not only an original property but in a far different genre. Wrath Unleashed is already shaping up to be a unique original property and HomeLAN recently received a full retail beta of the Xbox version to try out (the game is also scheduled to be released for the PS2 as well).
The game (which openly takes its main inspiration from the classic game title Archon) takes place in an over the top fantasy world that seems to owe a lot to comic books in terms of Wrath Unleashedís art style. You are literally playing one of four gods in the game, which are based on the four classic Greek mythology elements of earth, air, water, and fire. Each of these gods is trying to defeat each other by controlling their fantasy lands via control of creatures like giants, centaurs, dragons and so on.
