Hey kids! Patrick Stewart, famous for being PATRICK FREAKING STEWART has joined the cast of the upcoming War of the Worlds game based off of the classic H.G. Wells novel with a story that closely parallels both the original novel and the 1953 movie adaptation. The game features a new cast of characters in a new story arc, so things will be a little different than what we’ve seen before. My curiosity in this title grows the more I learn about it, and I look forward to seeing more as we near it’s release date, which is said to be sometime later in 2011. Check out a few screenshots and art after the break.
