Reign of Fire for the PlayStation 2 will follow the movie’s story with gamers playing as either a human fighting for survival, or as a fire-breathing dragon out to extinguish the humans. In the game, the player will view the action from a third-person perspective as they start off as a member of a resistance group, the Kentucky Irregulars. The group, which is led by the rough and tumble Denton Van Zan (MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY), hails from the United States. The group has arrived in England based on information concerning the origin of the dragon threat. They meet up with another group of survivors, whose leader, Quinn Abercromby (CHRISTIAN BALE), was present as a young boy at the location that the original dragon first arose and whose mother was killed by the beast. Together these groups must defend themselves from the dragon threat and eventually make their way to London and a dramatic final conflict with the ultimate dragon. Reign of Fire will offer the player spectacularly scorched and devastated landscapes that are a result of the fierce battles between these two species competing for survival. The game will capture the atmosphere and tension of the movie’s dramatic feel in a pyrotechnic maelstrom as players view wrecked forts, burned landscapes, destroyed vehicles and more. Reign of Fire will offer reactive music, which will give the game a film-like atmosphere, in addition to showcasing spectacular and realistic fire effects, which are an important and integral part of the game.
