SouthPeak Games has announced that Velvet Assassin for Xbox 360 and Windows PC has gone gold. The game's scheduled for release in the UK on May 8.

"World War II is such a common theme amongst games in the last ten years, but it's truly rare to find a title that brings gamers into the visceral reality of what happened," said Richard Iggo, Vice President of Marketing at SouthPeak Games. "Velvet Assassin excels in its ability to make players feel something more than just gameplay."

Velvet Assassin is a stealth-action game set during World War II, which sees players take control of Violette Summer, a British secret agent deep behind enemy lines with no support or official backing from the British Government.
