Games publisher Codemasters has teamed up with FRONT magazine to blur the line between fantastic videogaming and fantasy girls with a stunning new collaboration with FRONT’s resident siren Alex Sim-Wise.
Forthcoming action role-playing game Rise of the Argonauts features all the greatest heroes from Greek mythology and FRONT has taken this even further by introducing MySpace’s favourite babe as a new virtual heroine.
In a special six-page feature published in this month’s FRONT magazine (out today), Alex Sim-Wise is transformed into a real “God of Phwoar” – bestowed with the ability to cast fire from her hands at the flick of a wrist. She’s seen squaring up to mythological enemies, including the mighty Medusa, ready to blast them with her heat-inducing powers, whilst enveloped in a blanket of flames.
To commemorate this collaboration, Codemasters and FRONT have released three official wallpapers of this momentous photoshoot which are available from community.rise-of-the-argonauts.co.uk.
“The shoot was super rad,” says Alex Sim-Wise. “I’m massive gaming geek – so taking down the incredible bosses from Rise of the Argonauts was definitely my cup of tea. The results of the shoot are incredible. So much so I’ve been jumping around since, casting flames from my hands. Although, I did accidentally set light to a small cat.”
Rise of the Argonauts is coming this autumn for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and can be pre-ordered from the seenit.co.uk store.
