Curt Schillings' 38 Studios outs Project Mercury at the San Diego Comic-Con this month, giving con-goers the first look at the mysterious role-playing game that features the talents of R.A. Salvatore, Todd McFarlane, and Ken Rolston.


All we know about Project Mercury so far is that it's got amazing talent working on it, and a publishing deal with EA Partners. Aside from that we're in the dark, but the big names alone are enough to get us excited.

And soon we'll know what we're excited about.

The Thursday schedule for the San Diego Comic-Con has been posted, and along with panels on Dead Rising 2, World of Warcraft, and the Transformers, Schilling will be on hand at 1:15PM to show off his new game to the public, and he's bringing friends.

Be among the first in the world to see the video game debut from Curt Schilling's 38 Studios. Hear from the visionaries who have teamed up to create this highly anticipated RPG and the rich world it is set in, including 38 Studios' executive art director Todd McFarlane (Spawn, Spider-Man), executive creator of worlds R. A. Salvatore (Forgotten Realms), lead designer Ken Rolston (Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion), and founder and chairman Curt Schilling. Learn all about this ambitious new project as 38 Studios unveils the name of the game along with the world premiere of the game's first trailer directed by McFarlane. Attendees will also receive a limited-edition poster.

Hopefully we'll have a man in the stands for this one. I'm not going this year, as last year's visit to Comic-Con blew my convention budget for the next decade.

I was going to complain about Comic Con and how none of that was comic-related, but then thought "fuckit, I'll complain about someone else."

The lead designer for the game is the lead designer for another game that required several mods to be any good? Worried.
