Despite its name, Rock of Ages is not a reference to the song or the musical, nor is it a music game. It’s a third person game which features players as large, round rocks with the means to roll over and flatten all who stand in their path.
The latest trailer showcases more of the ‘Ages’ portion of the game, with stages influenced by the Medieval, Ancient Greek and Renaissance periods as well as many others. Environments are as colourful and destroyable as ever.
It would also appear that players can do more than just roll the lumbering boulder, with footage showcasing an ability to jump, perform impossible turns and generally defy the laws of physics.
Aside from that, the trailer sheds little light on game features beyond what has already been seen, i.e. a controlled boulder smashing its way through obstacles and people alike with a good measure of humour thrown in.
ACE Team is bringing Rock of Ages to PC in winter 2011.
