Enslaved May Have The Prettiest Post-Apocalypse Yet

Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory's next game, Enslaved, may offer the most pleasant looking post-apocalyptic environment ever, as new screen shots of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game illustrate.

Sure, the environments in Enslaved definitely look dilapidated enough, but they don't have that post-nuclear feel that its end of the world peers have. Namco Bandai still hasn't dated the game, which is apparently based on the 400-year old novel Journey to the West, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature—which may explain why the full title of the game is now Enslaved: Odyssey to the West—but it's penciled in for a "fall 2010" window.

That's when you'll enjoy the Hollywood-caliber one-two punch of cut-scene co-directer Andy Serkis of being Gollum fame and "famed novelist and screenwriter," Alex Garland, responsible for 28 Days Later and The Beach.

Enjoy some new screens of Monkey and Trip and their adventures in the wastelands of Enslaved in the gallery below.
