Ubisoft has released a new teaser trailer and three screenshots for Babel Rising, its PSN and XBLA game which allows you to play God and keep the Babylonians from building three different towers to heaven.

Players will use the elements to destroy said towers throughout different historic eras in 15 single-player missions across four game modes. The game also contains competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.

It won’t be as easy as just casting a bolt of lightning though, as workers will be constantly carrying stones; priests will be protecting the workers from spells; and siege towers will help the Babylonians access the tower’s upper levels faster.

However, you can cause plenty of havoc using fire, water, earth and air, each of which provides a unique effect depending on the target. These powers will also get stronger as you progress, and you can use Kinect and Move to unleash your fury – if you own the devices. If not, just use your normal controller.

So, start practicing throwing fireballs, releasing tornadoes, raining meteors down and more now in your yard.

If you are not able to perform such magic in real life, you’ll just have to wait until the game comes out this spring.
