SEGA’s Alpha Protocol dated

Alpha Protocol, SEGA’s high-octane "spy action" RPG, has just been dated for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game, developed by Obsidian, is set to launch sometime within February 2009.

Personally, the role playing aspect is what intrigues me in the title. There seems to be a drought of decent RPGs on PS3 thus far, western or otherwise.

A talented young agent cast out by his government, Michael Thorton is the only one with the information needed to stop an impending international catastrophe in SEGA’s upcoming Alpha Protocol. Every decisions the player determines as Thorton will carry consequences for his future and the fate of the world. More on Alpha Protocol soon.
