Earlier we reported that Ubisoft has obtained the rights to a video game based on Heroes. Well the news doesn’t stop there.
Ubisoft has revealed that they have right to James Cameron's 20th Century Fox movie ‘Avatar‘, due out in 2009. The rights give Ubisoft full control over adapting a next generation game based on the movie.
Furthermore, the publisher also revealed the first trailer for ‘Lost’, the video game, due out in early 2008. The game follows the story of the hit ABC TV series where players will take a role of passengers on Oceanic Flight 815.
"The video game will allow players to experience an untold adventure of Lost in an immersive, interactive world," according to Ubisoft.
The crew behind the television show already fell in love with “stunning” visuals and “imaginative” narrative effects. The game will also feature a epic battle with the eerie smoke monster, and possibly reveal secrets about the show.
Ubisoft hasn’t revealed any further specifics on the game play of either games, but both will be hot topics at this years Comic Con. Stick with PSU for upcoming news.

Yeah looks like they already screwed the pooch on Lost, I thought it was a realism based TV show...smoke monsters? I would really love to see a good open sandbox version of the Shield. The PS2 game was garbage.

Not very interesting... I don't follow the show, never watched it. But whatever makes them money.

I can't believe anyone still plays movie based or series based video games. Superhero movies like Spider-Man and Fantastic Four are one thing, but making games based off movies, in essense, playing the movie, is retarded, I can't believe they make so much money off of these terrible games that people continue to purchase.
