The Last Remnant: Square Enix's first next-gen RPG


Square Enix, the developers behind the Final Fantasy games franchise, have announced their newest RPG project: The Last Remnant (PS3, XBOX360). Gamespot have already been given a sneak peak, and you can read the press release at Yahoo. Here's an interesting excerpt:
Imagine a vast, war-torn battlefield, scarred by years of conflict. Countless enemies surround the player, who is backed up by his own army. Threatened by numerous foes and saved in the nick of time by allies, players will feel the true tension of a soldier on the battlefield. In THE LAST REMNANT, as many as seventy units will duke it out at once in fierce yet beautiful battles. Backed by the visual power of next-gen hardware, the unique play style and battle system will challenge and invigorate players like never before.
The publishers yesterday announced that the game would make use of SpeedTree®RT technology. If you've played any of these games, you've seen it in action. The middleware creates some of the most realistic forest environments gamers have seen.

French site Xboxygen has some high-res screenshots to whet your appetite. Bon appetit.
