Gamecock (Website: Gamecocklove.com...err ) had the great idea to release some new assets of Velvet Assassin at the same time as Microsoft's Gamer's day event, so here they are. The game was previously known as Sabotage and will be released this fall on PC and Xbox 360.
Gamecock press release:
‘VELVET ASSASSIN’ TO INFILTRATE XBOX 360 AND WINDOWS-BASED PC THIS FALL
Beautifully Realized Stealth-Action For Gamers
Cockpit, Austin, Texas – May 13, 2008 – Gamecock Media Group today announced that ‘Velvet Assassin’ will be available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows-based PC when it releases in fall 2008. Developed by Replay Studios, Velvet Assassin is a stealth-action game set in World War II and is inspired by real-life British secret agent Violette Szabo.
“This is a project we’ve been incredibly excited about from the start,” said Sascha Jungnickel, Creative Director at Replay Studios. “Velvet Assassin is going to be an amazing experience both in its visual style and gameplay, it will be awesome to get it to such a massive audience.”
Players assume the role of Violette Summer and head deep behind enemy lines with no support or official backing from the British Government. Violette risks her life fighting to defeat the German war machine one stealth mission at a time. Velvet Assassin combines lush, surreal visuals and a ground-breaking stealth combat system to deliver a gaming experience which is truly the first of its kind.

but the fact that it's been toned down even further is a bit disconcerting. And to think, there were people who believed next gen could produce Avatar levels of visuals. Deary me. (10 minutes ago)
@HR2: I think it's the fact that it's not a major departure from last gen that has everyone's jimmys in a rustle. (11 minutes ago)
