Starbreeze has been keeping busy. Along with working on a sequel to Payday: The Heist, the team also announced a mysterious project called P13. Today they lifted the veil on P13, revealing it to be Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
The game, which is coming early next year, is a project that's been in development with the help of Swedish movie director Josef Fares.
“When I first visualized Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons I knew I wanted to combine the deep, engrossing storyline of a film with the physical experience of a video game, allowing players to emotionally connect with the characters as they trek across sweeping, interactive environments such as peaceful vistas, foreboding forests and dangerous mountainsides,” Fares says.
“I chose to partner with Starbreeze and 505 Games to make my vision a reality and am confident that together we are creating an amazing and unique experience for gamers.”
As far as what the game's about, here's a quick synopsis:
A man, clinging to life. His two sons, desperate to cure their ailing father, are left with but one option. They must set out upon a journey to find and bring back the "Water of Life” as they come to rely on one another to survive. One must be strong where the other is weak, brave where the other is fearful, they must be... Brothers.
Look for Brothers on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam in early 2013. We'll have a preview soon!
