The Agent will be an open sandbox espionage title set in Germany… or maybe not

Ben Feder from Take-Two has been chatting to Eurogamer about the upcoming PS3 exclusive title The Agent. Well that may be pushing it really as he has actually been chatting about GTA and mentioned The Agent… but you get the idea.

When quizzed about The Agent Ben had this to say

“It’s a completely different storyline, there is completely different character development. It’s a game about espionage, set in the 1970s. GTA is obviously more about an urban experience, a typically rags to riches experience. Very, very different storylines, very different character development. It’s going to be very fresh for gamers.”

And from that I take it that The Agent will be an open sandbox styled game where you will run around a large 70’s styled city working as a spy and furthering good for whichever side you work for.

There will be cars and bikes and I expect a multi-player segment where two or more warring factions will be dropped into the city and tasked with taking each other out or recovering the prize before the other side does.

I guess it’s going to be set in Berlin with the option to move between East and West and the four sides will be the CIA, MI5, KGB and Germany (BND?).

Well from a little quote I just sold myself on this game and if Rockstar don’t make it with these ideas then I think I have a hit game on my hands.

What would you want to see in my awesome new title?
