Sorcery Hits Shelves Today

Action News Playstation 3 Sony

It’s time to brush that dust off your Playstation Move as the fantasy tale of Sorcery hits Australian shelves today. Sorcery, developed by The Workshop, with help from SCE Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America, is the latest title in the Playstation Move library. Players take control of Finn, a sorcerer’s apprentice, who accidentally unlocks a great evil, spreading across the Faerie Kingdoms. Using his arsenal of spells, Finn must defeat the great evil and revert the world to its normal state.

“Sorcery has remained an eagerly anticipated title for PlayStation Move on PS3 since it was first announced and we’re thrilled to offer this unique title to gamers everywhere today,” Patrick Lagana, Marketing Manager of Sony Computer Entertainment Australia said upon the launch of Sorcery. “Built from the ground up with PlayStation Move in mind from the beginning, Sorcery takes full advantage of our motion controller’s precision to provide a compelling gaming experience that is sure to capture the imaginations of players of all ages.”

Sorcery uses a gesture-based motion control system for casting spells as well as chaining spells to create more powerful combinations. Players can also brew potions, solve puzzles, find new spells and items and upgrade any potions the player may have. The game is available now across Australia. Check out some screenshots of the game below, including the box art and BBC’s Steve Mould, who hosts Sorcery – The Science Behind The Magic.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
