FIRST GAMEPLAY TRAILER FOR ALPHA PROTOCOL GOES LIVE
The Worldâ€™s First Modern Day Spy-RPG To Be Released In October 2009
SEGA Europe Ltd. today announced that Alpha Protocolâ„¢ â€“ the groundbreaking game combining espionage, action and excitement with RPG choice and depth â€“ will be available on retailer shelves globally October 2009.
The new gameplay trailer, showing in-game footage for the first time shows how players will travel to exotic locations around the globe, infiltrating terrorist camps and spy on unsavoury characters in the manner of their choosing. Alpha Protocolâ€™s RPG and dialog system will allow players the choice to be smooth like James Bond, cold and precise like Jason Bourne, or just plain explosively kick-ass like Jack Bauer.
The year is 2009. Worldwide political tensions are at a breaking point when a commercial airliner is shot down by a U.S. missile over Eastern Europe, killing all aboard. Despite evidence to the contrary, the U.S. government claims no involvement and dispatches agent Michael Thorton to bring those responsible to justice. With more options than any other RPG, Alpha Protocol offers unprecedented control over the development of Thortonâ€™s abilities and interactions with others. Physical combat, weapons mastery, cutting-edge technology and even seduction are just some of the skills to master. Hunted and alone, players will discover just how deep the conspiracy goes in Alpha Protocol.
