The Ultimate Open-World Super-Hero Experience will be Available for Xbox 360, Current Generation Platforms and Handheld Systems in Time for the Holidays

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:ERTS) will ship SUPERMAN RETURNS: THE VIDEOGAME, licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, on November 20. The game, which features storylines from both the Warner Bros.

See firsthand what it is like to be Superman in the first multi-dimensional open world game, where you can go anywhere in the 80 square miles of Metropolis, from the street up into the clouds. Revolutionary new flight mechanics gives the player full command of all your aerial maneuvers. As Superman, the player must protect Metropolis from the most well-known villains in the DC Comics universe and conquer more than 100 missions that only Superman can overcome including saving Metropolis and its citizens from destruction, battling enemies and saving the planet from natural disasters. Make split-second decisions about which superpowers and moves are best suited to defeat the multitude of enemies. The game will feature all the classic superpowers, but learning to master all of them during flight and combat will take work -- even for Superman.
