Rock of Ages will roll in August

Rock of Ages will roll out in August 2011. Developers of the game from ACE Team confirmed the release date of their new title for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Rock of Ages is an upcoming Tower Defense game, which is being developed in Chile by the creators of a notable action title – Zeno Clash (2009). The new project by ACE Team promises tons of multiplayer fun, when two competing opponents will switch sides, while using a huge rock to destroy the enemy’s castle.

The defender of the keep will get access to various sets of obstacles to be placed on the battlefield. These objects should stop the boulder from reaching its target. Earlier the game had been planned to come out in Spring of 2011, but later on the premiere of the title for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms was delayed.

We contacted ACE Team to find out the reasons for changing the release date. Carlos Bordeu, who is a Partner, Game Designer and Artist at ACE Team responded telling us that Rock of Ages developers have been working really hard to get the title ready for its premiere.

The start of summer is filled with various events in the game industry like the E3 2011 (07-09.06). In June Carlos Bordeu from ACE Team will make a speech at a Game Developers Conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the problems of battling the video game piracy in Latin America are to be discussed as well.

Regarding the upcoming release of the new ACE Team title, Carlos Bordeu told our GameScope media: «We’re working on getting the final details for the different platforms. We want to make a simultaneous launch for all platforms. The Rock of Ages release date is August 31st. It’s taken longer than we expected, but this is our debut Unreal Engine game, so I’m sure things will be easier next time».
