SEGA has announced that Obsidian's espionage RPG Alpha Protocol has gone gold and has been sent off to manufacturing.

Alpha Protocol brings together elements of role-playing, stealth, and action gameplay into a single experience designed to represent what it feels like to operate as a modern day spy.

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.

Alpha Protocol is scheduled for release on June 1 in North America and in Europe on May 28 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

The latest Back on Topic made it sound pretty interesting. Am I ready for another game that's like Mass Effect 2 but not quite as good? Nah... :laugh:

Please, please, PLEASE be as good as Mass Effect! It looks fantastic, though I miss the original boxart... I hope there's plenty of incentive for several playthroughs, story-related I mean, more than just achievemenet points...

Been interested since word go. I hope this game isn't a flop as of the E3 gameplay footage seemed quite impressive.
