It's been nearly eight months since the last new episode of "Lost" aired. Eight months to whip up conspiracy theories, play some alternate reality games, and go to "Lost" fan conventions in full Hurley cosplay regalia. Now that we're within two weeks of the season four premiere, MTV Multiplayer's Stephen Totilo has the scoop on Ubisoft's Lost: Via Domus to slake the last bit of our eight month thirst for tropical island mysteries.
We already knew you were going to be playing as a new character to the series, an amnesiatic photojournalist named
Frank West Elliott. However, we weren't quite sure of the level of interactivity you would have with the show's plotline and characters (many of whom are voiced by the actors who play them on the show). After Totilo's brief time with the game, he assures his readers that there will be many opportunities to view actual events from the show from a different angle, like the initial plane crash, or the untimely detonation of Arzt (we hope).
If being chased around an island by sentient clouds of smoke is your idea of a good time, Lost: Via Domus drops on Feb. 26 for the PC, PS3, and 360. If not, be patient. We're sure they'll make a video game adaptation of "Sex and the City" soon enough.
