Alpha Protocol is hitting store shelves this summer. The espionage game, a fiercely original take on the role playing game genre, will launch in Europe on 28th May 2010 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC Games For Windows.
â€œAlpha Protocol offers a new take on the RPG genre giving players the chance to immerse themselves in the world of modern day espionage,â€ said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director of SEGA Europe. â€œBeing the first ever RPG in this setting, Obsidian have written a truly immersive storyline with a cast of characters everyone will remember.â€
With a plot torn from todayâ€™s headlines and more twists than a blockbuster movie, Alpha Protocol brings a new level of modern day realism to the world of RPGs. Tasked with uncovering the perpetrators behind a tragic missile attack on a passenger jetliner, players dive into a story rich with characters and locations to discover an international arms-dealing conspiracy. Through their actions and choices, players direct the outcome of the game as they ultimately decide who to befriend, trust or kill.
In Alpha Protocol, players assume the role of rookie spy Michael Thorton and are given unprecedented control over the development of his abilities and interactions with other characters. Customisable character skill-sets, attributes and weapons all play an important role in allowing gamers to tailor Thorton to their play-style. Enjoy the new Xbox 360 packshot from the upcoming game.
