Chronicles of Riddick and Syndicate developer Starbreeze today finally lifted the wraps from its mysterious project 'P13' codenamed, revealing Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons. A far cry from its usual ultra-violent FPSs, the collaboration with Swedish film director Josef Fares is a grand fairytale adventure of two brothers on a journey to save their dying father with a monstrous chum.

Details are few and far between beyond what you can see in the announcement trailer. We do know it's built upon Epic's Unreal Engine, published by 505 Games, and slated for release on PC (via Steam), Xbox Live Arcade, and PlayStation Network in spring 2013, but that's about all.

"When I first visualised Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons I knew I wanted to combine the deep, engrossing storyline of a film with the physical experience of a video game, allowing players to emotionally connect with the characters as they trek across sweeping, interactive environments such as peaceful vistas, foreboding forests and dangerous mountainsides," Fares said in the announcement.
