Little Orbit announced today that they will be teaming up with best-selling fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson to bring Mistborn: Birthright to the Playstation 3 in 2013.
Mistborn: Birthright is an RPG set in a dark world of ash, mist and Gothic creatures ruled by a seemingly immortal villain Lord Ruler. The game will feature a rule based magic system called Allomancy which allows players to temporarily enhance their physical and mental abilities by ingesting burning flakes of metal. Those who have the ability to burn a single metal are called Mistings, and those who can burn all metals are known as Mistborn.
Mistborn: Birthright will feature an original storyline created by Sanderson and will focus on a “unique combat system that puts Allomancy into the hands of gamers“. You will take control of an arrogant nobleman Fendin “Fiddle” Fathvell as you try to master his powers before dark forces destroy his whole family.
