And gamers will soon also be able to get themselves Lost in the pacific, with a partnership between Ubisoft and ABC. The Lost video game will be shipping first quarter of 2008 for the Xbox 360, the PS3 and PC-DVD Rom.
“Ubisoft has worked closely with ABC Studios and the show’s producers to create a compelling storyline that has the same mystery, adventure and intensity fans of the show have come to expect from the ‘Lost’ brand,” said Ubisoft’s Helene Juguet.
“The sense of adventure and suspense that we strive for in the show is also captured in the Lost video game,” said ‘Lost’ executive producers, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.
“Ubisoft has done a fantastic job and come up with a game that is visually amazing and imaginative both on its own and as an extension of the world of the show,” they said.
