Warner Bros. Games has released the first video clips from Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters. Set in the continuity of the forthcoming Green Lantern live-action film, the game puts players in a battle between the Green Lantern Corps and the Guardians' failed first attempt at a galactic police force, the android Manhunters. The newly released video does not feature gameplay, but rather one of what we're sure are a number of animated story sequences, specifically the arrival of the Manhunters on Oa, and the Green Lanterns flying into action.


Starring the voice of Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters will drop on June 1, just ahead of the film's opening on June 17. It was previously revealed that players can choose to pursue the game's quests as either Hal Jordan or Sinestro, who at this stage in the saga is still a Green Lantern. The video depicts Hal using his ring to fire energy blasts and Sinestro creating a very cool-lookin gatling gun. Hopefully Hal will be able to create familiar Green Lantern constructs like boxing gloves, too.
