It's not often that Xbox 360 owners can lord adventure game supremacy over everyone else, but for the next few weeks they'll be able to do just that after the release of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
Created by Swedish film director Josef Fares and developer Starbreeze Studios, Brothers tells an "epic fairy tale" of two sons desperate to save their ailing father. To find a cure, they must venture far from home and brave a number of obstacles and perils, working together cooperatively in order to survive. If they are to succeed, "one must be strong where the other is weak, brave where the other is fearful, they must be… brothers."
Players will alternate control between brothers as you "experience co-op play in single player mode." There will be puzzles to solve along the way, but this is not a traditional adventure, so you can also expect to fight "boss battles" as you explore the varied environments.
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is available now exclusively for download on Xbox 360 for 1200 Microsoft Points. PC and PlayStation 3 gamers don't have much longer to wait, fortunately, as the PC version is due out on Steam on August 28th and the PS3 version will launch on the PlayStation network on September 3rd.
