I thought Death For Spies 3 had been garrotted in an alleyway or invited to a polonium picnic. As it happens, despite a prolonged and unexpected stay in a sinister bunker between national borders, the third-person stealth action game is still with us. A failed crowdfunding campaign may have delayed development but a demo has now been released, showing the cold war setting. In-game footage below.
I haven’t actually played either of the previous games in the series but ‘Hitman with spies’ sounds fairly close. The developers say this: “Overall it’s a social stealth with open levels, where you can change clothes, use various weapons, hide and sneak. It’s like Hitman+Splinter Cell+Commandos.”
It’s not clear how much of the previous information about the game is still relevant, with the website claiming three characters will be in-play simultaneously, using unique skills like Lost Vikings playing The Great Game. The Greenlight page only mentions the return of Semyon Strogov though, and his information-gathering and enemy-slaying skills.
