Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect Trailer: Come Join the Murder
As SAMCRO moves on from the jaw-dropping conclusion of the 'Sons of Anarchy' TV series, a new one-percenter is willing to do anything to get his Reaper patch.
According to Polygon, Orpheus Interactive recently posted its debut, rough cut trailer for Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect. This marks the first real time that SAMCRO gets its own game. Based on what we see in the trailer, Orpheus seems to be influenced by Telltale Games. This would make sense as Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and other popular TV shows have successfully made the jump using a similar format. Telltale's influence becomes apparent when you see the cel-shaded graphics used that help tell the story of this would-be outlaw biker. There are some instances of combat, motorcycle driving, talking and cigarette smoking, all done from a first-person perspective. Since this game is going to be episodic with its releases and launch on mobile and tablet devices, we have a feeling most of these events are scripted.
In the actual trailer, we see some hectic motorcycle-riding down a crowded, winding road at night. We also see one of Sons of Anarchy's Sergeant at Arms (basically an enforcer for the club -- the guy who does the dirtiest work) hand you a gun, ordering you to kill someone they have captured. We must note that this character doesn't look like Chibs or Tig from SAMCRO, who each previously held the Sergeant at Arms patch throughout the seven seasons of the TV series. It could be that the game wasn't allowed to use the actors' likenesses, or that this is an entirely different charter than the Redwood Original crew from Charming, CA. If this story wants to be fresh, we have a feeling it'll be one of the more distant chapters of the biker gang.
While no launch window was announced, Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect will launch on tablets and mobile devices.
