Activision doing Wolverine movie tie-in

It's in development for all platforms.

Activision plans to pop out an X-Men Origins: Wolverine videogame to accompany the film next spring.

Raven Software, of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and X-Men Legends background, will take the helm, developing for PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and DS. That's quite a spread.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine follows and furthers the plot of the film; the escape from the Weapon X factory, the jungles of Africa, and the mutant powers of the grizzly fighter.

Those powers - two sets of retractable adamantium claws and a near invulnerable adamantium skeleton - lend themselves rather well to third-person combat. And Activision promises plenty of devastating combos, "brutal finishing moves" and acrobatics.

The X-Men Origins: Wolverine film launches next May, according to IMDB, so expect the game to be released around then.

There's nothing else to go on just yet, but we'll let you know when something emerges.
