From what we've seen from screenshots and video diaries, The War of the Worlds is shaping up to be an XBLA game worth noting. Based on the H.G. Wells book and developed by Other Ocean Interactive, the launch trailer showcases some of the crazier elements such as the alien forces invading to jumping puzzles to straight-up action. Not to mention Sir Patrick Stewart himself is narrating the action as you wield an axe at a small alien. Keep a lookout for this title before the aliens strike when it hits digital shelves next Wednesday, October 26 for 800 MSP.
