SEGA Europe has announced that Obsidian Entertainment's Alpha Protocol will be released on May 28 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC Games for windows.

"Alpha Protocol offers a new take on the RPG genre giving players the chance to immerse themselves in the world of modern day espionage," said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director of SEGA Europe. "Being the first ever RPG in this setting, Obsidian have written a truly immersive storyline with a cast of characters everyone will remember."

Players assume the role of rookie spy Michael Thorton and are tasked with uncovering the perpetrators behind a tragic missile attack on a passenger jetliner. Through their actions and choices, players direct the outcome of the game as they ultimately decide who to befriend, trust or kill.

Customisable character skill-sets, attributes and weapons all play an important role in allowing gamers to tailor Thorton to their play-style.

Wow, just seen the new boxart. I'm kinda torn as I really liked the original (pretty damn blue - world map in the background), it reminded me of the Man From UNCLE for some reason, and feels perfect for what he game looks like it'll be. But the new one is also... fantastic. There's a small image of it on the official site (larger ones are circulating round other forums, but I can't attach the image to these posts).

The new one is certainly akin to the Dragon Age boxart, classy and icy cool. Damn. I wish they'd print both, in a reversible option. What does everyone else think of it?

I'm with Clockpunk, if it's anything like ME2 I will adore it.

Even though I could see some depth into the decisions you make. I hope this game isn't short. I would love this game to have twists and turns to really throw the gamer.

I hope the style of this is much more ME2 than DA:O. Looks good, though, of not a little cliche... but still, I've got my copy preordered! ;)

Mass Effect is a great game, even more so if you have played the first one.
