Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is proud to announce that Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earle Haley, stars of the upcoming Watchmen film, will lend their voices to the long-form downloadable videogame Watchmen: The End is Nigh. Developed by Deadline Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Watchmen: The End is Nigh will feature the voices of Patrick Wilson as Nite Owl, a refined fighter well-versed in martial arts and cutting-edge gadgetry, and Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach, a feral, streetwise fighter who can disarm enemies and use their own weapons against them.
A prequel to the Watchmen film directed by Zack Snyder, the videogame Watchmen: The End is Nigh will be released on March 4, 2009, two days before the movie opens in theaters nationwide. Watchmen: The End is Nigh extends the film experience and will delve into the characters, rivalries and challenges in a mature action-brawler. The game explores the crime-fighting partnership of urban vigilantes Nite Owl and Rorschach, who track and beat down criminals to uncover a dangerous conspiracy.
Watchmen: The End is Nigh will be released on Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC, and on March 5, 2009 on the PlayStationNetwork.
