Eidos has trickled out new information for its Highlander game.

Its take on the well-known licence begins in Gaul over 2000 years ago, where young Owen MacLeod discovers he cannot die in none other than a gladiatorial arena. Awfully handy.

After this he lives forever with his special Quickening powers and is guided by mentor Methos. Soon he attracts the attention of a very powerful enemy who tracks him right through time to the modern day, and you embark on a quest to piece three fragments of a stone together to wield the power you will need to stop him.

Quick, chop its head off.

Eidos has finally revealed details about its Highlander project, naming French outfit Widescreen Games as the developer of the PS3, 360 and PC games.

It will be a third-person action adventure that spans over 2000 years, giving you a chance to explore feudal Japan, medieval Scotland, a futuristic vision of New York and Pompeii before the historical volcanic eruption.

Similarly to the film, the aim will be to journey around the world and meet other immortal warriors in battle, lopping off their heads to win. You'll have the choice of Katana, Claybore or Double to use, and be able to use various techniques to overpower your foe - like Resurrection, Chi Balance, Fireblade, Wind Fury, Stone Armour and other powered-up special attacks.
