The producers behind familiar-looking third-person action adventure Shadow Guardian have called it the ‘most ambitious game’ Gameloft has made.

The claim was made during the international press demonstration earlier today, as the world’s media had their first look at the new title.

The claim is apparently supported by the number of polygons, which is claimed to be over four times more than Avatar. The animations (over 600 for the main character alone) look far more refined than the earlier release.

The range of gameplay options also looks to be plentiful, with scenes demonstrating the Tomb Raider-esque exploration, third-person cover-based shooting, and puzzle solving with cryptic clues.

We’ll have a hands on with the title later in the week, so stay tuned for our in-depth (and ambitious) preview tomorrow.
