MyWorld Game based on GIS data; Will integrate Social Media

The game, officially Project: MyWorld (do not confuse it with the GIS package of the same name), will be out in 2011 and promises a real world game environment, build on GIS data (no indication of what GIS data). It appears for the trailer it will include a lot of detail (buildings), that you can buy and customize and of course sell. You can travel the world by car or plane and see social media messages (Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google, and Loopt) within the world. The goal of the game is unclear to me, but is another way to integrate social media in to non-real world geography. The game will be from developer Realtime Worlds which apparently offers a game called “APB.” Trailer and walkthrough videos after the jump.
