When I first read the news I thought, "How could a game called Titanic be a driving simulator?" Then I realized that it is actually Titanic - The Diving Simulator. That "r" makes a big difference.
Regardless, this simulation game intrigues me. It allows the player to pilot a mini-submarine to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean to explore the wreckage of the Titanic. Shoot photos, raise artifacts and learn more about the story of the tragic night from 1912 than you thought possible.
Titanic - The Diving Simulator will be released November 26. Here's a link to the publisher's site, but it calls the game by a different name; I'm not sure what that's about. It doesn't currently have a US price but I imagine it will hit the $30 price point like the recent Farming Simulator 2011. Does this type of game / experience interest you?
Titanic - The Diving Simulator
Excalibur Publishing are proud to announce the release of Titanic - The Diving Simulator
Visit the most iconic shipwreck of all time in this PC CD-ROM simulation as you descend deep into the ocean abyss to explore the remains of the Titanic. The proud vessel, sent to the depths of the ocean after a catastrophic iceberg collision still captures imaginations today. Operating the mini-submarine, "Nephron" travel 4000 metres to the sea bed and catch your first glimpse of this once great liner as imagination becomes simulated reality.
Using a freely controllable robot camera, explore deep into what was the most luxurious vessel in the world, as echoes of the Titanic's date with destiny accompany you as every room and staircase is explored. However, beware the denizens of the deep as you may not be the only visitor to the final resting place of this mighty vessel!
This once in a lifetime visit to the Titanic forms part of a gripping adventure story as you shoot rare photos and raise artefacts from her watery tomb. Every artefact has a story to tell - heroism and heartbreak, she saw it all that fateful night in 1912.
Also featuring a "free roam" mode, three levels of difficulty and a wealth of fascinating background information on the most famous final voyage in the world, the Titanic will hold you spellbound in her grip.
Titanic - The Diving Simulator will retail at £24.99, and is available for pre-order at www.excalibur-publishing.com and will hit the shelves in all major game retailers on 26th November 2010.
