EA Reveals Orcs & Elves
A new mobile title from the developers of DOOM RPG
EA announced today the development of a new mobile title called Orcs & Elves, created by id Software and Fountainhead Entertainment.
After the success that was DOOM RPG, available on mobile phones, EA has decided to team up with John Carmack and co. to develop its latest title, which also happens to be of the RPG genre. Played entirely in first-person and featuring a turn-based gameplay system, EA's fantasy title is primed to be an epic adventure that will apparently make use of the next generation DOOM RPG graphics engine.
With the help of a magical talking wand, players explore an ancient Dwarven fortress riddled with a variety of beasts and treasures. As is the standard in the genre, expect to find a lot of different weapons and items throughout your quest, such as flaming swords and cross bows.
Orcs & Elves will be available exclusively to Verizon Wireless Get it Now customers on May 9, 2006, with a nationwide release expected sometime in July.
