The Agency is a spy themed MMO shooter set to be released on December 12, 2010 for the PS3 and PC.

Gameplay: The game will feature first-person shooter-style gun fighting, with the ability to switch between third and first person views, with some driving and other vehicular segments as well. Skill will be the primary determining factor in the success of the player, though some RPG elements will come into play as well. It has been mentioned that one shot to the head will instantly kill any player, suggesting it will be a somewhat realistic shooter. The game will also include subgames and minigames.

Story: There is little released on the storyline, although it is hinted that there will be one that ties together all of the agencies within the game.

I hope it's not like APB whereas you have to pay to play.

I keep getting this mixed up with Agent.

Yeah that'd suck. If that's the case I likely wont buy it... I was all stoked for DC Universe, then when I found out you had to pay I was completely turned off :pi:

Agent sounds fantastic too. The Agency is a typical spy copycat though - I mean, I'm on the website now, and one of the characters has the same gun that James Bond uses - Walther P99. Do they really think that's the ultimate spy weapon or something? :p

Agent sounds good too :D And I never noticed the "copycat" thing. I'm sure it'll still be good though :)

As long as they dont copy too many things (constant use of wigs, anonymous billionare funding an agency, game chapters seperated into hours etc... :p) I dont really mind XD

I'm quite excited for this- it looks quite fun actually. And apparently, it'll be free to play, but we'll see in the end. I just really want some more news on it.

I thought this was something to do with the Hitman series :(

Wouldn't it be called Hitman: The Agency if that were the case? :p

he works for The Agency, so i thought it might be a thread specifically about his employers and their business; but that thread wouldnt last long, as theres not much to talk about it considering theres not much we know about The Agency.

Ah, yes, the ICA. I hope they reveal more in Hitman 5.

LOL. When I first saw this I wondered what an spy based MMO was going to be like. What would you do? Run around spying on each other? Then I saw that it was going to be pretty much a generic shooter with spy thematic skins. At that point it did not look very good. I think I will pass on this one.

i wonder if the "Your Majesty" Diana was talking to at the end of BM was Elizabeth II?






:pi:

anyways, were getting off-topic, and i dont want to have to report us.

I hope Diana is the last hit of the series, that would be an epic way to end the series.

Ah, yes, the ICA. I hope they reveal more in Hitman 5.

Me too :tmb:

Yeah, spy themed...shoot-out? :confused:

Well, if I were to forget about the theme, then I guess this could be good.
Although it just looks like a shooter so far, no mmo elements.

If you call lots of players an mmo, then I guess MAG is one as well :|
I'll wait for more info.

It's rather contradicting isn't it?
Like, usually when I hear 'spy' I think of stealthy espionage, not shoot-outs in public.

Yep, but I might be reading wrong.
There are supposed to be two factions in the game, The Mercanries (Guns blazing)
and the spy's (tactical) I hope that gameplay was just an early brief preview of the Mercanries.

Mercenaries are Paragon.
Spies are UNITE.

I thought I saw a mixture of both in there. Either way, I'll be joining UNITE, naturally.
