SCi Games Ltd., one of the UK’s largest games publishers, has announced that Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has awarded SCi Games the license to publish the forthcoming videogames for Constantine, which are being developed by Bits Studios and are based on the upcoming Warner Bros. Pictures film due in February 2005.
Based on the DC Comics/Vertigo Hellblazer graphic novels, the supernatural thriller Constantine tells the story of John Constantine (Keanu Reeves), a man who has literally been to hell and back. When he teams up with sceptical policewoman Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) to solve the mysterious suicide of her twin sister, their investigation takes them through the world of demons and angels that exists just beneath the landscape of contemporary Los Angeles. Caught in a catastrophic series of otherworldly events, the two become inextricably involved and seek to find their own peace at whatever cost.
Constantine the game is already well into development and will be released on Sony PlayStation 2 and Microsoft Xbox to coincide with the film release in 2005.
