PC Gamer Magazine's latest issue reports on a new MMORPG by SOE
, (Sony Online Entertainment) maker of games such as Everquest, Vanguard: Saga of Heroes
. The new game, dubbed The Agency
utilizes the new Unreal 3 and will be available for Windows and the Sony PS3. The Agency
will focus on a system of spy-themed gameplay in addition to incorporating a shooting aspect. The game will also have RPG elements. However, unlike other contemporary MMOs, you don't level up in The Agency
. You complete missions in order to acquire more and better support personnel. Player versus Player combat is also said to play a large role in the game.
Let's just hope that The Agency
doesn't go down the path of Planetside
or Star Wars: Galaxies
. Maybe SOE will have realized their mistakes by now. The Agency
is set to be released winter of this year.
