Disney Interactive Studios has announced the development of TRON: Evolution.
Developed by Propaganda Games, TRON: Evolution is described as an action/adventure game set between the original TRON and the upcoming TRON: Legacy. Disney is promising an epic adventure across a massive digital world filled with disc-based combat and advanced light cycles.
"We expect TRON: Evolution to be a premier action-focused game that both stands on its own and supplements a major event film," said Dan Tudge, vice president and general manager, Propaganda Games. "Because Propaganda Games is based in Vancouver, which was the site of the film’s principal photography, we were able to leverage the proximity to continuously collaborate with the filmmakers and ensure authenticity between the two projects."
As part of the connection between the game and film, actress Olivia Wilde stars as Quorra in TRON: Evolution. Players will discover how earlier events within the world of TRON shape her character’s future.
TRON: Evolution is scheduled for release in Holiday 2010 before the TRON: Legacy film arrives in cinemas.
