Beowulf The Game is a multi-platform hack and slash action game from Ubisoft that was released in November 2007. In addition to the Xbox 360, this game has also been released for the PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable platforms. This game is based on the movie version (directed by Robert Zemeckis) of the Old English heroic epic poem Beowulf and features the voices of the actors that starred in the film.

For Beowulf The Game, Ubisoft utilized the YETI game engine. Ubisoft’s award-winning YETI engine has been used in such games as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (1 and 2) and America's Army: True Soldiers.

Gameplay

In this game, players play the titular character Beowulf, the legendary tormented Norse hero. Although based on the movie, Beowulf The Game allows the player to experience and shape Beowulf’s life through the 30 years not shown in the film.

As Beowulf the warrior, the player travels to Denmark, fights a murderous monster, and maneuvers himself to the throne. Once King, the player must lead and command his warriors as they battle enemies of the kingdom. The player has control of his warrior’s battle positions and weapons.

WIth each battle, the player gains legacy experience points. These points can go to replacing weapons, gaining more warriors and carnal upgrades (Carnal Power, Carnal Fury). Beowulf’s abilities, parries and combination attacks get stronger as the game progresses. By gaining more experience, the player can also unlock an army of up to 12 thanes.
