News: Espionage RPG to be published by Sega.
Sega and Obsidian Entertainment have announced they will team up to bring the espionage RPG Alpha Protocol to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. The modern day spy storyline will involve a young agent going rogue:
Loyalty carries a price and no one knows this more than agent Michael Thorton. A talented young agent cast out by his government, Thorton is the only one with the information needed to stop an impending international catastrophe. To do so means he must cut himself off from the very people he is sworn to protect. As players determine how to accomplish different objectives, the decisions made and actions taken in each mission will ultimately transform the type of secret agent Michael Thorton will become. Every choice the player makes as Michael Thorton will carry consequences for his future and the fate of the world.
?Alpha Protocol blends Obsidian's knack for intricate stories, engrossing characters, and significant character advancement with fast-paced modern combat,? said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. ?Alpha Protocol embraces everything we enjoy about making RPGs from a fresh perspective. We are confident our talented staff at Obsidian will enable us to deliver this exciting RPG experience.?
