News: Sixties crime saga coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this fall.
Codemasters has announced they've teamed with inXile Entertainment to create Heist (officially spelled HEI$T in that annoying DRIV3R/SE7EN way) for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Right now, the plan is for Heist to make a break for stores near the end of the year.
Heist transports players back to San Francisco in the year 1969 as Johnny Sutton, a recently paroled mook who has a family history of thievery, including his late father and his Uncle Sal. With Johnny out of the slammer, Uncle Sal pulls his crew back together for a new series of bank robberies.
Heist will cover a whole crime spree including raiding bars, restaurants, strip clubs, armoured cars, and more as Sutton's crew prepares to knock over the San Francisco Mint. And what would any proper heist be without a high speed getaway? Codemasters has promised each robbery will end in a thrilling chase.
"We designed HEI$T so that players feel like a part of the best robberies and car chases from classic movies," states Maxx Kaufman, Creative Director at inXile Entertainment. "Everything from the different types of jobs to pull and the reckless pursuits by the police through the streets of San Francisco, to the sarcastic banter back and forth between the members of the crew, gives HEI$T the action and style of the great attitude and rock-driven films of the 60's."
You can find the first two screenshots of Heist right here and we'll have more soon.
