Activision Announces Generator Rex: Agent of Providence

Game based on popular Cartoon Network show coming this fall.

Activision will be publishing a video game version of the Cartoon Network show Generator Rex, for release this autumn.  Generator Rex: Agent of Providence stars a nanite-powered teenager who suffers from amnesia.  So if we’re understanding this right, and I’m at least partially sure that we are, the largest third party publisher in the world is bringing a Final Fantasy game featuring a younger version of Alcatraz from Crysis 2 to the market…or something like that.

According to Pete Yoder of Cartoon Network, the game will feature “a conflict-driven storyline, aspirational characters and an arsenal of cool weapons and vehicles.”  Players will square off against Exponentially Variegated Organisms (E.V.O.s) which are capable of bonding with a host and subsequently changing them into hideously-mutated beasties.  The quest to stop the dastardly Van Kleiss will take players through locales such as “the depths of the jungle, the scorching deserts, and the heart of metropolitan cities”.

So we’ve covered the good guy, we’ve talked about the bad guys and we mentioned the setting.  What else are we missing?  Of course, Collectibles!  Gamers will be tasked with keeping an eye out for blueprints that are necessary in order to construct increasingly powerful weaponry for use in fending off the nefarious E.V.O.s.

Agent of Providence is being developed for the DS, 3DS, 360, PS3 and Wii.  It seems that either the PSP/NGP are being left out in the cold on this one, or Activision is waiting until a later date to announce a version for Sony’s next-gen portable.
