Who doesn’t love RPGs? Who doesn’t love spy thrillers? Combine these two and you get Alpha Protocol from Obsidian (also at the helm of Fallout New Vegas)
Alpha Protocol unites role-playing, stealth, and action gameplay into a single experience that captures what it feels like to operate as a modern day spy. With production values on par with a blockbuster action movie, the consequences of the player’s actions in the high stakes underworld of arms dealing can be explosive. Perhaps unleashing on suspected terrorists with the Pentagon’s latest weaponry is the best move… or maybe just stay in the shadows and stay cryptic in your interactions. There isn’t a single correct approach.
Alpha Protocol ups the stakes in the RPG genre with the integration of the innovative Dynamic Stance System (DSS), dialogue tech that allows the player to pick a ‘stance’ instead of a direct answer. Players need to think on their feet, because in Alpha Protocol a key weapon IS choice – and every decision not only shapes your relationships with in-game characters, but it changes the entire world around you.
