Alpha Protocol

"Alpha Protocol promises to merge the pulsating action of games like Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune with the deep, considered and player-defined character development of Mass Effect.

As far as bringing together hot ideas, Obsidian could hardly have suggested two better points of comparison to get people salivating. However, this experienced developer is not simply walking in the footsteps of BioWare again.

Most of you will probably know Obsidian best as the developer of KOTOR II and Neverwinter Nights 2 (both franchises started by BioWare), but the founding members of the team were from Black Isle Studios, responsible for the seminal and hugely influential Fallout and Fallout 2.

Since Black Isle was closed by Interplay, Obsidian has done consistently solid work on the titles it has been handed, but Alpha Protocol is a genuine opportunity for the developer to stamp its character on a new IP and for its team to once again make a claim for being the best RPG creators in the business."
Uncharted + Mass Effect + Fallout = Alpha Protocol
