Ubisoft's blasted out two lots of new E3 screens and a trailer for From Dust, the god game described as a "spirutal heir to Populous." As well as the gorgeous art style--and a huge number of press quotes--they show off how you'll be harnessing the elements to reshape the landscape and save its inhabitants.

Developed at Ubisoft Montpellier with Another World(aka Out of this World) creator Eric Chahi, From Dust is headed to Steam, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this summer. The XBLA version is being released during Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion, which kicks off in July.

      I can't actually wait to play this, as soon as I get the chance I'll surround the tribal village with a mote of wwater and than drop lava on them!

        A Populous 3 style game with the Red Faction: Guerrilla engine would be nice.

        Did you create that user name in hopes that some day you would be able to make this statement?
