A man, clinging to life. His two sons, desperate to cure their ailing father, are left with but one option. They must set out upon a journey to find and bring back the “Water of Life” as they come to rely on one another to survive. One must be strong where the other is weak, brave where the other is fearful, they must be… Brothers.
505 Games in partnership with Starbreeze Studios and filmmaker Josef Fares will release Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons – previously known as P13 – for Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and for Steam in spring 2013.
When I first visualised Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons I knew I wanted to combine the deep, engrossing storyline of a film with the physical experience of a video game, allowing players to emotionally connect with the characters as they trek across sweeping, interactive environments such as peaceful vistas, foreboding forests and dangerous mountainsides,” said Fares. “I chose to partner with Starbreeze and 505 Games to make my vision a reality and am confident that together we are creating an amazing and unique experience for gamers.
Fares is a Crystal-Simorgh winning film director who was born in Beirut, Lebanon and moved to Sweden when he was 10 years old. Variety declared him one of 10 upcoming directors to watch in 2006. That same year he won the Nordic Council Film Prize for his film “Zozo.” Since then Josef has received several awards and prizes, both as writer and director, and his last feature film “Leo,” in which he also appeared, was selected for the Focus section in the 58th Edition of the Berlin International Film Festival in 2008.
