More Info On The Agency Released

agency3Today more info about the new cross platform secret spy game, The Agency, has been released. First off, the cross platform gameplay between the PC and PS3 are up in arms according to Sony. Kevin O’Hara, Sony Online Entertainment’s senior game designer, said: “We have not decided if you can play between the two. They are cross-platform. We’re able to do it - it’s more of a design concern. We’re doing a lot of focus testing and we’re finding that people just, ‘oh they’ve got a controller, it’s not fair! Well they’ve got a mouse it’s not fair!”

This exactly what I was fearing. They need to find a way to make it work, like Epic Games did with Unreal Tournament III, otherwise I think this game could flop.

Then some info straight from the Agency Website and screenshots below:

Live the Life of an Elite Agent

The Agency requires spy world skills in combat, stealth, and style. Players jet around the globe to exotic locales picking up intel, forming networks and taking out criminal masterminds. With gameplay ranging from sneaky infiltration to all out firefight assaults, there’s something for every aspiring agent.

Fun Now, No Waiting

The Agency blends the action of shooter gameplay with the persistence of an online virtual world. At any point, PS3 or PC players can jump right in and frag opponents in head-to-head “PvP Anytime” combat or advance the ranks in a rich story packed with exciting missions.

Mercenary or Spy-the Choice is Yours

Operate as a slick super spy or a gritty mercenary, administering arms deals, executing assassinations, managing espionage, counter intelligence, and more. Collect the right weaponry, gadgets, gear, attire and aliases to gain access to numerous locales and influence over the people within them.

Put Operatives to Work

Operatives are collectible non-player characters who provide the goods and services players desire, and the in-mission support to keep them alive. Operatives work 24/7 to help players concentrate on the mission at hand. Trade them with friends or sell them to the highest bidder.

Build Your Own Agency

As players advance through the ranks of their faction, they’ll also begin building their own Agencies. Players increase their power even further by creating Joint Agencies with others.
