If you found yourself wanting more after watching the 2007 Spanish horror, [Rec], as well as its sequel, I have some great news for you! The film franchise is currently being adapted into a first person shooter game for your PC and mobile devices to be available in 2012.
Bloody-Disgusting reports that Tonika Games has just signed an agreement with Filmax to develop a video game that closely follows the franchise, originally created by Jaume Belaguero and Paco Plaza. The game will include content from all four films and it will break up the game into four different worlds, based on the coinciding movie in the franchise.
The first person shooter will have a similar style to Grand Theft Auto and L.A. Noir, requiring the players to complete missions based on particular locations that were featured in the films. The game is being developed with Unity3D technology, which was used to develop several platform games as well as other popular mobile games.
The 2007 film, which was remade for the US in 2008, follows a young reporter who is shadowing a group of firefighters. When the team goes out on a routine call at a nearby apartment building, they realize that things aren’t as routine as they had thought. The group of people begin coming sick and violent and what’s worse: they are trapped inside. The sequel followed a medical and S.W.A.T. team as they entered the building to ease the situation, only to find themselves trapped as well.
There are two more films slated to release within the next two years, and they will follow different story-lines. The upcoming, [Rec]3: Genesis, will be released in March 2012 and will follow a group of individuals at a party who begin to experience similar behavior as the people from the first two films.
The video game franchise will be available for the IPhone, IPad, PC, Blackberry, and Android platforms. Keep a lookout for the new series in 2012.
