EA Announces a Game about Creation called Create
I love getting game announcement press releases, because it’s fun to try to figure out what the new game is from the inevitably vague and non-descriptive descriptions the releases typically give. I had a good time doing that this afternoon as I attempted to discover just what the hell EA’s Create is. And then I watched the trailer, which paints a pretty interesting picture.
Kinda makes me think of Elefunk mixed with some Trials HD and crack, though I don’t think that description at all explains what this is. Here are some vague words from EA to muddy the waters a little more:
” ‘Create uses families’ imaginations to develop new ways to play together that are both fun and challenging,’ said Harvey Elliott, VP and General Manager at EA Bright Light. ‘We wanted to design a game where the entire family can explore, decorate, and solve challenges where no solution is wrong and the only limit is the imagination.’
The more players explore the game, solve level-based challenges, and customize their world, the more rewards will be unlocked. Creativity will be unleashed as players design environments with easy-to-use brushes and tools, including textures, props and animating objects that bring the scene to life. On the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and MAC players can share any of their creations, solutions or challenges with the community through the console and also via the official Create website at www.create.ea.com. Friends can download and remix solutions and set challenges for other players to download and complete. Imaginations will run wild this holiday!”
Well, OK. I’m still not sure what’s up with this thing, but that vid does look pretty sweet. Looking forward to seeing more of this, whatever it is. It’s out on PS3, 360, Wii, PC and Mac in November.
