As you know, my only reason to attend the London MCM Expo with regularity is the fact that Koei tends to be there with its Dynasty Warriors-flavored glory. This year, however, I have a few more reasons to attend, not least of all Sierra’s freshly announced presence, and the promise of The Bourne Conspiracy and Ghostbusters!
Ernie Hudson, the man who played Winston in Ghostbusters and is due to reprise his role in the game, will also be at the event on both days to sign autographs. Yay autographs! Sounds like this year’s Expo will be a little more cool than the last one.
Any of you charming readers attending this event? I’ll be there on the Saturday if any of the Destructoid faithful are coming. In the meantime, hit the jump for the press release concerning Sierra’s contribution to the event.
Marlow, 20th May, 2008 – Sierra Entertainment UK today announced their participation in the forthcoming MCM London Expo, to be held at the London Excel Arena over the weekend of the 24th and 25th May.
During the event, Sierra will offer visitors the opportunity to experience two upcoming, blockbuster titles. Not only will The Bourne Conspiracy be showcased, but Ghostbusters will also be present – as will Ernie Hudson, star of the original movies.
The Bourne Conspiracy gives players a chance to be Jason Bourne and experience, first hand, his signature mix of hand-to-hand fighting, gunplay and dramatic escapes. Additionally, the demo will provide a tantalising taster of the gripping gaming experience with extracts from three heart-stopping, action-packed levels. First, the infamous escape from the Paris Embassy – focusing on Bourne’s hand-to-hand fighting skills and ability to escape the inescapable whilst evading the clutches of the Gendarnerie. Secondly, a cinematic shoot out with Divandelen – one of the many big bosses featured in the full game – and finally the now legendary high speed pursuit with Jason’s unwitting accomplice Marie, across Paris in the Mini Cooper.
The Bourne Conspiracy will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 on the 27th June, 2008. For more information on the game, visit: https://www.bournethegame.com
As for Ghostbusters, in order to deliver a special gaming experience to the dedicated fan base around the world, the game will feature cast members from the classic Ghostbusters films. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson – who will be available to sign autographs on both days of the MCM Expo event – will reunite for the first time in more than 20 years. Come and see for yourself how – equipped with a variety of unique weapons and gadgets – you’ll be able to hunt, fight and capture a wide range of supernatural villains in a funny and frightening battle to save New York City from its latest paranormal plague.
