Developed by Deadline Games A/S,
Watchmen: The End is Nigh is a hardcore mature action brawler featuring bloody
visceral combat in settings which are reminiscent of the film. Watchmen: The End
is Nigh Part 1 takes place more than a decade before the film’s main story,
delving into the partnership of urban vigilantes Rorschach and Nite Owl before
the hero-banning Keene Act. In Part 2, the duo team up again as Rorschach
contacts Nite Owl to help solve the case of a missing girl, Violet Greene.
