Sony Computer Ent. America Inc. announced the release of LAIR, available exclusively for PlayStation 3. Developed by Factor 5, LAIR engages players to fight alongside a voracious dragon and to save a world from the brink of extinction. LAIR includes high-definition graphics in 1080p, immersive 7.1 surround sound, and interactive, motion-based control utilizing the SIXAXIS wireless controller.
Set in a world ravaged by endless conflict and natural disaster, a call for peace turns into a bloodbath of betrayal and deceit in LAIR. Users play as a warrior named Rohn, who rides a powerful dragon as part of the Asylian army's elite Sky Guard. Rohn engages in a battle to stop the war-hungry Mokai and save the Asylian civilization, facing legions of soldiers and massive creatures in intense boss battles. Users engage in seamless air-to-ground combat to influence large-scale battles taking place in the skies, on land, and out at sea. The SIXAXIS motion-sensitive controller provides for intuitive tilt control and gesture recognition, allowing for 180-degree turns, dives, and attacks.
LAIR is one of the first 1080p native resolution games on the market and includes a score by Academy Award-nominated composer John Debney (SIN CITY, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST).
"Creating new, original themes for this primal world has been one of the most stimulating experiences of my career, something I will look back on and cherish," said Debney. "The score for this game is unique also in that it truly presents a large-scale symphony in three acts; the music alone in this game would fill three complete movies. In the end we created a work richly melodic, deeply passionate, and savagely primal, all of which fits in with the theme, tone and dramatic elements of LAIR."
As the game heats up and battles intensify, players can unlock new combos, upgrades and other gameplay elements, along with a vast array of extras including exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and developer commentary on this fully-packed Blu-Ray Disc. LAIR offers deep replayability with sandbox-style gameplay that allows for varied strategies and a multi-tiered medal scoring system that constantly offers up new challenges as players advance. Players are then able to compare their statistics against other users via the online leaderboards and exchange tips on how to achieve even higher medals on the online forums -- all from within the game itself.
The independent Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) rates LAIR "T" for "Teen" (Descriptors: Blood and Gore, Violence). For more information about LAIR, visit www.LairTheGame.com.
