Velvet Assassin Has Gone Gold
Summer Receives Her Most Important Mission Yet
Games announced today that Velvet Assassin for the Xbox 360 and Windows PC has
gone gold and will be shipping next week.
“World War II is such a common theme
amongst games in the last ten years, but it’s truly rare to find a title that
brings gamers into the visceral reality of what happened,” said Richard Iggo,
Vice President of Marketing at SouthPeak Games. “Velvet Assassin excels in its
ability to make players feel something more than just gameplay.”
Velvet Assassin brings players into
the world of Violette Summer, a British secret agent behind enemy lines in
multiple hot-spots during World War II. Players are introduced to a bed-ridden
Violette as she slips in and out of fevered dreams, reliving her most poignant
missions through her memories. With no outside support, Violette must sneak her
way into heavily guarded Nazi strongholds, assassinate high-level targets and
even deliver cyanide to fellow operatives caught in the field. Using
true-to-life weapons and tactics, Violette is one of the few people standing
between the Nazi war machine and total domination. Velvet Assassin asks players
to focus on the reality behind these clandestine acts, with no technological
marvels, no special weapons, just your wits and the equipment on hand.
Velvet Assassin will be shipping to
retailers on April 30th, 2009.
