Back at E3 2010 there was a little game called Sorcery. It was the reason that many people became interested in the PlayStation Move and caught a lot of attention. Many of the message boards I visit had users routinely putting the game in their top five most anticipated titles list and the hype was pretty high. Plenty of time has passed and we hadn't heard anything about the game until today, when a PlayStation Blog post threw out a ton of new information.


It's welcomed info as you would imagine, especially when this game was considered by many to be vaporware. In fact, I saw many cracks that said this would be the PS3's own version of Sadness but thankfully things never got to that point. Sorcery looks to be one of the best uses of the PS Move and, as you can tell from the title, it is coming to us in the not-too-distant future.

The story of Sorcery centers around the Nightmare Queen, who has broken the ancient pact with mankind and threatens to cover the land in eternal night. As a young sorcerer’s apprentice, it is up to the player to master the arcane arts and fight back the foul creatures of this magical realm. The Move allows players to conjure up magic as they wade their way through the dark Faerie Kingdoms. The game also has some puzzles, a multitude of enemies, eight spells that can be used in combination, and also allows one to craft strange potions with the in-game alchemy system. There' also a gesture-based combo system that lets players chain together basic spells into powerful combos.

There are five unique realms to explore, each with their own enemies and challenges. Players will descend into the kingdom of the dead to battle the Banshee and the Restless Dead warriors, venture into the endless stair where vicious bogies are wreaking havoc, brave the faerie forest, raid the Slumbering Palace to free Lord Fey, the Faerie King, and the team at The Workshop promises much more.

We're all excited here at TPS for Sorcery. I'm sure many of our readers have been awaiting new information and feel free to take to our comments section to let us know how happy you are to see this game is indeed coming along. Check back for more updates, including a solid release date, in the coming months.
