Activision Publishing’s Secret
Service puts the President’s Life in Gamers’ Hands
Activision Publishing, Inc.
announced today that Secret Service will be released later this year for the
Xbox 360, Playstation 2, and PC. The title will allow players to assume the role
of an elite agent, tasked with protecting America’s top leadership.
Secret Service takes place on
Inauguration Day in Washington D.C. An extremist assault has been launched
against the capitol – security has been compromised and it is unclear who is
friend or foe. There is no time for negotiation as you are thrust out of the
shadows and into the line of fire in order to protect the nation’s leaders. The
action takes place among famous landmarks and everywhere in between, including
both Marine One and Air Force One.
A tactical first person action game
full of plot twists and revelations, Secret Service features story and level
design contributions by Daniel Arey, who previously worked on Uncharted, the Jak
series and the Crash Bandicoot series.
“This game is a unique addition to
the first person action genre, with a rich storyline set across famous locations
and the need to use both lethal and non-lethal force to achieve your
objectives,” said Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. “Secret Service brings a
nice refreshing spin to fans of run-and-gun games.”
Secret Service will be available for
$39.99 on Xbox 360, $29.99 for Playstation 2, and $19.99 for PC. The Secret
Service videogame is not approved, endorsed or authorized by the U.S. Secret
