E3 09: The Agency Developer Walkthrough


We've not been paying much attention to Sony Online Entertainment's new MMO, spy-shooter The Agency, but since 2009 is clearly Year Of The Spy, we thought we'd best post up some of the E3 09 insight. In this case it's a GameTrailer's-acquired developer walkthrough, posted below. The game definitely has a whiff of City Of Heroes to it, in that the public areas are "City Of Spies", but there's nevertheless something quite refreshing about seeing someone playing real-time FPS (or TPS) combat in an MMO instance. It's going to take some successful hands-on time with this to really convince me, however, as it does just seem a little lightweight. Being an MMO, I do wonder where the grind will come from, and how cookie-cutter those missions are really going to be. Anyway, go take a look.
