Alpha Protocol Finally Goes Gold

May 5, 2010 Written by Dan Massi

Many been waiting for this moment for a long time now. The anticipated Alpha Protocol is the secret agent answer to Bioware’s Mass Effect, and has disappointingly been delayed several times now. However, the wait is finally almost over.

SEGA have announced that Alpha Protocol has gone gold and is heading for a June 1st release in North America and European release of May 28th. In the game, players will play as CIA field agent Michael Thorton, who is betrayed by his superiors and being hunted by the United States government after a failed mission. The response from Thorton is the use of “Alpha Protocol”, which allows senior agents to work undercover.

Alpha Protocol was developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the developer behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2.
