Child Of Eden PS3 release date delayed to September
Ubisoft has confirmed to IGN that the PlayStation 3 version of Q Entertainment’s Child of Eden has been moved all the way back to September of this year. No specific reasons for the delay were cited. According to IGN , PS3 owners will have to wait till September to play the game. Although it has been delayed, PS3 gamers will be happy to know that it will have PlayStation Move support.
Xbox 360 gamers will be able to jump into the colorful world of Child of Eden when the game launches on June 14 in North America. Though the game supports a controller, Child of Eden has been getting plenty of attention for its support of Microsoft’s Kinect peripheral.
Developed by Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s Q Entertainment, Child of Eden is largely in keeping with the developer’s previous work. The game takes its cues in large part from Mizuguchi’s acclaimed rhythm shooter Rez, and it features the same style of music-enhanced shooter gameplay with psychedelic visuals.
The title was nominated for Best Original Game and Best Motion Simulation Game by the E3 Game Critics Awards, but lost both selections to Harmonix’s Dance Central.
The game’s visual style approximates a virtual reality universe and is heavily reliant on geometric shapes in motion against an ever-shifting background. The shapes join to take on aspects of the virus, evolving from tiny single-block creatures to giant wormlike monstrosities.
Child of Eden will be released on July 14, 2011. pre-order it for PS3 or XBox 360 from Amazon here.
