The Getaway is FINISHED!

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced recently that The Getaway has gone gold in Europe. This, of course, means that the game is being prepared for retail and has completely finished development. 

In The Getaway, players assume the role of a retired bank robber. Your character's son has been kidnapped, as you must travel through the environments of London. The most impressive feature of the game is there are absolutely no onscreen energy bars, arrows, ammo counts, or small maps. This strategy is to ensure the game's cinematic feel is not detracted from. To adhere for this there are hints in the way to travel amongst the areas and player's health loss is shown with limping and bloodstains. This intuitive system is shaping up to be an extremely useful tactic in the game scheme.

The Getaway will be released in Europe on December 11 and in North America early next year.
