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.
