Sir Patrick Stewart to narrate The War of the Worlds

In our first look at Other Ocean Interactive's PlayStation Network- and Xbox Live Arcade-bound The War of the Worlds, Max teased that we'd be in for a treat when it came to the game's narrator.

He wasn't lying!

It's none other than Sir Patrick Stewart, which you knew as of about ten seconds ago when you read the headline. "As a young boy, I remember watching the The War of the Worlds so many times I was quoting the lines," says Stewart.

"The alien invasion both terrified and fascinated me and the movie has stuck with me since then. Now, being part of this project will provide a new way for gamers around the world to experience a fresh new take on a classic." As a bonus, Other Ocean has thrown in screenshots with this announcement. Take a look.
