Alpha Protocol unveiled

Alpha Protocol unveiled

Announced by Sega and Obsidian last month, Alpha Protocol is now officially unveiled with a pack of screenshots showcasing the main character of the game, Michael Thorton. We still don't really know what this game is gonna be, but looking at the developer we can expect something between RPG and action. The game is planned to be released next year on X360, PS3 and PC.

Yeah I skimmed over the article in the latest GI. Sounds like Mass Effect with spies. In other words, eh.

That's the same impression I got :p

If these screens are anything to go by, then the game might have stealth elements too.

edit: On second thought, wall hugging doesn't really mean stealth.. but what the heck..

Well, if it's obsidian i'll keep an eye on it. Untill i get some more juicy tidbits on the gameplay i can't have much of an opinion. I like that the screens at least look like actual screens, not some photoshop job or a render :P

Hm. Might be interesting. Unfortunately, Obsidian have earned a reputation of being forced to ship out unfinished games, KotoR 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2, so it may happen yet again.
Commented on 2008-04-04 22:14:31
Thats definitely not Ilai lol... wtf are you talkin about ?

Mission Impossible!

Talk about a generic main character >.<

He's saying that the guy in the third pic resembles ELI Vance (come on, it's not that hard to spell). Not that it is, in fact, Eli.

While true, I'm still willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for now. Hopefully this turns out better than their previous efforts. Aren't they working on another RPG right now as well?

OMG, it's a video game clone!
How fucking dare someone else make a video game...*sigh

- As long as it plays exactly like Perfect Weapon, I'm in.

The screens scream out Mass Effect, but the game was one of the best games i've ever played, so im not complaining.

a MASS EFFECT clone? YES PLEASE!!!
Commented on 2008-04-05 19:59:08
no thanks!

Looking at the screens, I would have thought this game was the new Bourne game.
Commented on 2008-04-06 18:50:03
Screen 3 looks a bit odd, dunno if it's AA or bizarre texture resolution. The others look great and the second one in particular looks very atmospheric!
Commented on 2008-04-07 04:26:25
Im hoping this will be a mix between action and stealth, my two favourite genres :)

If you ask me, this looks pretty fucking good.
