Alpha Protocol Golden, Set To Infiltrate Stores June 1
June should get off to a good start, now that Obsidian and Sega's promising "espionage RPG" has been cleared to launch on the first day of the month.
Sega has announced that Alpha Protocol has gone gold and will indeed be ready to go on June 1 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in North America (European gamers will get it three days earlier). Combining a variety of appealing gameplay elements, including role-playing, stealth, and straight-up action, you will discover the deadly intricacies of a spy's daily regiment. "With production values on par with a blockbuster action movie," it's all about player decisions; what you do can and often will have a drastic impact on the game's outcome. Perhaps most interesting is the implementation of what they're calling the innovative Dynamic Stance System (DSS), which lets you pick a particular "stance" during a verbal encounter. This means you don't have to give a direct answer; the importance of which every spy fully understands. As they say, your "key weapon is choice." How you interact with other characters and even enemies will be crucial, so make your decisions carefully...lest you reap the whirlwind at a later date.
The game certainly seems to hold a lot of promise, and we'll be interested to see how it turns out. After Heavy Rain, we're lovin' the idea of choice in games.
