Following the VGAs trailer bonanza, today was a rather reserved day in the industry. What did emerge were a couple of details about Guillermo Del Toro's project came out and there were trailers from Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and X-Men:Destiny. We've got all of that and a little bit more in today's daily gaming wrap up.
THQ announced today that the recently revealed horror title inSANETM will actually be a trilogy of original games. Acclaimed writer and director Guillermo del Toro will serve as an external creative director for the trilogy, and he will be working with THQ and Volition Inc. Studios during the development process.
Del Toro has also stated that he would be open to he possibility of trans-media projects such as film or novel tie ins. Fans of horror related games can get excited as Del Toro is quoted as saying, "With this new series of video games, I want to take players to a place they have never seen before, where every single action makes them question their own senses of morality and reality." inSANE is expected to have its first title released in 2013.
Not content to give fans just a taste of Thor: God Of Thunder in the wake of this year's VGAs, Marvel has released a (somewhat) new trailer for another superhero game today. This time, they're giving players a look at X-Men: Destiny, a game that at least appears to give players RPG style control over whether they ally themselves with Professor X or Magneto. Although it's mostly teaser stuff, jump to the end for a shot of what looks to be a massive boss.
