Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings
 
We should start seeing some new screenshots from Lucasarts after the first of the year for the new Indy game. E3 is coming up and I'll bet they will toss us a bone or two in regards to the Indy franchise. Is it coming out in '06 or '07?

IndyBuff 12-29-2005 01:33 PM

From what I've heard, it's scheduled to come out sometime in 2007. Personally, I wish they'd release more games instead of one every three or four years but at least they're promising us another game. I'm hoping there will be some more news at E3 but at this point it may be too early to tell.

Thought I'd bump this thread a little. I saw the new issue of Stuff magazine and it mentioned that the new Indy game will be out in 9 months. :D

I'm more than happy to wait 3 or 4 years between Indy games if LucasArts continues their stellar game design.

I as well. Indy ain't Star Wars. The franchise itself doesn't really lend itself to multiple games a year. There just aren't as many...
A. story ideas.
B. appropriate gameplay types.
C. characters (Come on, you can't have an Indy-less Indy game :D)

That sounds great! It would be nice to finally see another Indy game and film surface or at least go into development this year.:)

It is supposed to tie in with Indy 4.

How are they going to tie this game in with the new film in only nine months? I'm guessing that means that Indy IV will be filmed this summer and ready to release late this year or next year. I'm not sure how they will do it but hopefully we'll see the game before the end of the year.

I've been playing Fate of Atlantis and Emperor's Tomb quite a bit lately and I'm always looking forward to the next Indy game.:whip:

VP 02-08-2006 04:41 AM

Maybe we get to play the previous adventure that ends in the beginning of Indy 4, like ET and ToD?

That's a good possibility and it would be a neat way to lead into the film.

If I recall correctly, Excalibur was just a nice sword, but it was the scabbard that protected King Arthur from shedding blood? Maybe?

It would be a neat idea, although Indy already discovered those items in The White Witch novel, so I doubt they'll use the same artifact twice. Still, you never know....:whip:

VP 02-09-2006 02:53 AM

Umm, we already have two Indy games about Atlantis.

Finn 02-09-2006 03:17 AM

Let's say one and a half.

VP 02-09-2006 03:19 AM

Two and a half. FoA, FoA Action and FoA 2.

Finn 02-09-2006 03:33 AM

FoA 2's not done yet, so it's two after all... at the moment.

I would love to see a modern game based on Raiders! I just played the old 2600 version yesterday. Came very close to winning, but I got my parachute stolen in the Well of Souls and didn't feel like going back for another, so I just quit. Maybe aI'll try again today.

Katarn07 02-16-2006 04:04 PM

It's supposed to be next gen only, so no current gen consoles will play it. Kinda sucks. I plan on getting an X360 eventually but if not, it's sure to be PC as well.

Anyone see this old video about the next Indy game? Don't get your hopes up. It's LEC in general but they mention Indy (for a whole 30 seconds! Whoo) and you see part of the game briefly. I can't fast foward and it doesn't come around until the 2:10 mark so put up with the BS about how great all the new SW games are (:sick: ). Better than nothing though, right?

spohlso 02-21-2006 11:30 AM

Got a link there Katarn?

(Just so everyone knows. I beat the 2600 Raiders yesterday. Oddly anti-climatic.)

IrishLuck1980 03-21-2006 02:41 AM

Katarn, you can't say you saw a glimpse and not post a link. That's wrong.

:mad:

VP 03-23-2006 10:53 AM

Nothing that I know of. They released all the info about ET about six months before the planned release.

Katarn07 03-23-2006 01:04 PM

Heh. I must've forgot to actually paste that part. :o VP linked the right one. As said, nothing special.

And yeah, all I know about the game is it is not an Indy 4 adaptation. So if and when that comes out, we'll probably get that as well.

San Holo 03-23-2006 03:15 PM

I tried the link, but computer is garbage. What does this glimpse of the game look like-for those of us who can't watch the video?

I can't get the video to work for me anymore but basically it just had the announcers talking about the game and it showed a few outlines for levels in the game and things like that. It was interesting but you're not missing much by not seeing it (and you don't have to watch Adam Sessler act crazy, which is a good thing).;)
