Alpha Protocol Announced

This press release announces plans for Alpha Protocol, an espionage-themed RPG in the works at Obsidian Entertainment slated for release on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 sometime next year:
LONDON (March 13th, 2007) –SEGA® Europe Ltd. and Obsidian Entertainment, Inc. today announced a thrilling new espionage role-playing game set in the modern world - Alpha Protocol™. Alpha Protocol is developed by the globally revered and genre defining development studio, Obsidian Entertainment, known for smash hits such as Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and Neverwinter Nights 2. This exciting new game will set the world alight on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PCs in 2009.

“Alpha Protocol blends Obsidian’s knack for intricate stories, engrossing characters, and significant character advancement with fast-paced modern combat,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “Alpha Protocol embraces everything we enjoy about making RPGs from a fresh perspective. We are confident our talented staff at Obsidian will enable us to deliver this exciting RPG experience.”

Loyalty carries a price and no one knows this more than agent Michael Thorton. A talented young agent cast out by his government, Thorton is the only one with the information needed to stop an impending international catastrophe. To do so means he must cut himself off from the very people he is sworn to protect. As players determine how to accomplish different objectives, the decisions made and actions taken in each mission will ultimately transform the type of secret agent Michael Thorton will become. Every choice the player makes as Michael Thorton will carry consequences for his future and the fate of the world.

“Working with Obsidian Entertainment on a project of this stature is incredibly exciting for SEGA. We have one of the best independent developers working on what will be one of the definitive games of 2009,” stated Gary Knight, European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe Ltd. “With innovative RPG action and an incredible interactive storyline to match the very best spy-thrillers, Alpha Protocol delivers a heart thumping high definition experience.”
Alpha Protocol is set for global domination on the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and PC in 2009.

Just finished NWN2 and the expansion. I think there was one crash throughout the entire game. Of course, I updated it with patches before playing.

Jade Empire on the other hand from Bioware, which I've just started playing (after getting it for like $10 on gogamer), has this annoying bug where you can't see see your character/NPCs the first time you load it up. There are no still patches for it after all this time.

At least Obsidian maintains their games.

Sounds interesting. Personally, I think Obsidian is getting better with each new game. NWN2 had fewer bugs than KOTOR2, and actually had an ending. MotB didn't have any big bugs, and seems to have been generally well-received.

I was one of the lucky people who managed to avoid any major bugs in the unpatched NWN2, so that might color my opinion. But I've always liked their games, and I look forward to their future titles. I'm not sure how well a secret agent RPG will work out, but at least it's different.

I wouldn't put KOTOR 2 and NWN 2 in quite the same league of bugginess. KOTOR 2 was just fundamentally wrong whilst NWN 2 just had bugs.

I am optimistic about anything that looks like an RPG whether it's a port from a console or not. I just hope it won't be too action orientated.

nwn2 is at least a solid game now though, but yeah wasn't worth playing at release.

Hmm, for some reason, secret agents and RPGs just don't seem to mix. Maybe it's because secret agents are supposed to be good at everything. Guess we'll find out when the game comes out.

...at least you'll know what you're buying up front. something buggy, unsolvable, and painful to play -- just like the two games listed above. kotr2 and nwn2 were heartbreakingly buggy.

Could be good.
