Some environment screens from Eidos’s upcoming Highlander on GameInfoWire. It’s got people on stakes, apparently. The game’s out on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year.

Speaking to VG247, Highlander developer Widescreen Games has confirmed the unthinkable: the Kurgan will not appear in the action title.
This news hit us hard. The Kurgan was the main “baddie” in the original 1986 movie, the baldest man on celluloid. Luckily, as associate producer Luke Timms told us, at least one of the films’ favourites will make it into the game.
“Kurgan, no, but there is one familiar character Highlander fans will be happy to see,” he said. “Working closely with the original writer – David Abramowitz – ensures that we are in tune with what Highlander fans want and expect.”
What we expect is some hardcore immortality action. Doesn’t sound like we’re going to be disappointed.
“One of the things we have found that is as compelling today as it was in the original film is the idea of immortality,” said Timms. “This really opens up some cool, unique gameplay opportunities. For example if you get impaled by a sword, you can pull the sword out of your stomach and use it to behead your enemy.”
Good enough for us. Highlander’s releasing for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 this year, published by Eidos. Read all of Luke’s answers to our questions after the link.
