First Preview of The Agency

Sony Online Entertainment's Seattle division is sick of the high fantasy, men in tights type of MMO. The team said so at a recent SOE event, which was a surprising statement considering that the EverQuest 2 and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes development staff was only feet away. Titled The Agency, the studio's upcoming game will be a first-person shooter MMO with spy and espionage themes. No release date is yet available (except that it won't be in 2007), but the Agency is in development for PS3 and PC, with the possibility of cross-platform interconnectivity.

The story is too old to be commented.

I am actually into a SOE game. I mean honestly this game could do really well. The first real fps mmo really.

Aren't the games APB and Huxley also fps mmo games? So, depending on the release date, this probably won't be the first (as the others were announced a while ago).

SOE has had a FPS MMO out for years now called Planteside.

I am a big MMO fan and while this sounds good I have my reservation. Many MMO have had big ideas and plans only to not fulfill them. I have seen many traditional fantasy MMO fail simply because they failed to execute well on release. Doing something way outside the box in this area will either be a big hit or a big flop.

"SOE has had a FPS MMO out for years now called Planteside."

I didn't know that. It definitely means that APB and Huxley won't be the first fps mmo games (my mistake). Thanks for the info.

But they don't have any real decent rpg elements. This is the first one that could be a really be a good community rpg fps. PLanetside was a real bust, and didn't have many rpg elements. And huxley, seems to follow in the same path as planetside. This is the only one that seems to be interesting. Wonder what happens with this game.

1. Possible PS3-PC interconnectivity = higher server populations (this is a good thing).
2. Open PvP or what they call "PvP anytime"
3. World Domination Mode

Count me in.
