Sierra Entertainment today announced that The Bourne Conspiracy will ship for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on June 3. The ship date applies to North America only. Sierra did not reveal a European release date.
The Bourne Conspiracy blends hand-to-hand fighting, gunplay and escapes, the latter of which will give gamers the ability to re-enact the high-speed chase through Paris in the Mini Cooper.
Sierra’s version of the Jason Bourne storyline is an entirely original story written in collaboration with the screenwriter for the Bourne feature films. The Bourne Conspiracy will explore a bit more of Jason Bourne’s past and the conspiracy shrouding his origins, plunging players into the role of Bourne as both trained assassin and marked government agent.
Developed by High Moon Studios and based around a combat system co-designed by Jeff Imada, the fighting choreographer for the films, The Bourne Conspiracy delivers every signature Jason Bourne element, from hand-to-hand fighting and shooting to escape and evasion.
One of the most anticipated sequences, though, is likely the game’s high-speed pursuit based on the car chase from The Bourne Identity. In this sequence, players will take the wheel in an upgraded version of Marie’s red Mini Cooper and try to evade seemingly every police car in Paris. The gameplay in this sequence will be a mix of arcade-style racing and destructive stunt setups.
