Total Recall MMO To Release Next Year

SEE Games & ZQ Game have announced a Total Recall MMO. The game is set to release around the same time as the Total Recall film remake, which comes out on August 3rd 2012 in the US.

The Total Recall MMO will be free to play and will use micro transactions to fund the running of the game with both PVP and PVE areas.  The press release also says:

– ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW –

“The Total Recall game will be one of a rare and relatively new breed of full 3D browser-based games capable of rendering console like graphics and environments without the need for a client download.”

Sounds pretty impressive graphics wise if it can deliver console like graphics. Corey Redmond, SEE Games’ President said:

“Total Recall is an action filled sci-fi property that expands perfectly as a deep and immersive browser based game experience.”

Meanwhile Mark Caplan, Vice President of Sony Pictures Consumer Products Inc, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures, said that the upcoming MMO “will offer fans of the franchise and gamers alike an engaging and authentic experience.”

  1. Shotgun the 3 boobed alien!

    • “Baby – you make me wish I had 3 barrels…”

  2. Can you play as Arnie?

    • Did you miss the word “Remake”?

    • Yeah, you are actually more likely to be playing as Colin Farrell if anyone.

      Likelihood is that it won’t be as it’s an MMO (otherwise you would probably have a hell of a lot of Colin Farrells running around!).

      • And you also won’t be on Mars. It’s set on earth, more in line with the book the story comes from. Which to me was part of what made the Arnie version great.

    • Yep, I totally missed that word, silly me!

  3. I wonder if it will use the new technology that somebody showcased where they played a pretty high end game without a client download in the browser. Can’t remember the details. Was it UT3 and Adobe?

    • Yep UE3 is capable of running in flash.

  4. Slightly off-topic (but not really), i don’t see why Total Recall needs to be remade in the first place. It still stands up today as a great movie (albeit a bit cheesy, but it is Arnie so it kinda comes with the territory).

    Same goes for Robocop too.

    Have hollywood really run out of ideas now?? I mean, i know people say that there are only 6 stories (or something) & everything else are all variations of those stories, but c’mon!

    • I’m waiting for the inevitable Robocop vs Terminator. See, now someone in Hollywood will get paid millions for that idea, unless..

      *starts script*

    • Agree with you on Total Recall Forrest but Robo-cop these days looks like hes shit his pants when he moves.Kind’ve detracts from him remembering emotions when it looks like he needs an Enema shot.

      • That’s all part of the charm though!

        “I’d buy that for a dollar!”

      • LOL.

  5. If they get the right people they can be decent(Dawn of the Dead 2004 springs to mind) but yeah most often they seem to be bland or worse,Wicker Man anyone?
    I’m more against the bastardising of world cinema tbh,quickly knocked out,dumbed down shite without an exception i can think of offhand.
    Anyways a game based on a novel in a genre that isn’t able to tell a story,i guess we’ll know more when they print the transaction details.

  6. film will be rubbish, I would put my house on it.

  7. I hope we get to start the reactor and save Mars.

  8. So if TSA ever reviews it and it was negative (since its likely) would the sub heading be

    “Hasta la vista”

    ?

    Never watched, never on actually, but yeah why can’t they make a Jackie Chan film into a MMO especially Druken master, that would be sweet, way better than Arnie imao
