Even with these screens we still know nothing about the game. Some news must be due soon, even if it is to say it's cancelled.
M4I0N3  +   1193d ago
hmm interesting, the environment looks very middle eastern
gaffyh  +   1193d ago
Yeah it kinda does. I know these are old, but for some reason, I think this game will be like Hitman by looking at these images.
Electroshocked  +   1193d ago
I've been waiting for ages for at least some artwork of this game and finally we get some, awesome. This game is created by Rockstar North, so I'm hoping that it's a sandbox/open world game.
HBK619  +   1193d ago

I thought of Hitman too, weird!
norman29  +   1193d ago
A bit old no? if you click on any of the 2 images they both have a watermark in the bottom left that say 2009.....
inveni0  +   1193d ago
The screenshots are old, but they've not been found until now...so it's not old.

I'm hoping this is open world. If not, the graphics are a little underwhelming.
ReservoirDog316  +   1193d ago
Haha, like I always said, the sound of this game reminds me of the movie Munich! It's 70s, seems middle eastern and it's about assassinations!

Either way, Agent always just sounded good to me. Can't wait.
SilentNegotiator  +   1193d ago
And the "artwork" looks surprisingly close to actual polygonal 3D renders.

lol, seriously, how new must you be to the industry (as a VG news writer) to mix those up?
Oh right, it's GamersMint.

Hmm... 1979?

hmm seeing this sorta kinda made my excitement more manageable, i was hoping a huge russian, u.s. cold war story gta style, drive tanks and heli's , Speed boats and spy for both sides and do espionage missions like sam fisher and lots of 007 action... and that old school gta humor with it...and add a little uncharted style duck n cover and stylish slow motion kills and be given contract hit and the freedom to set up how it goes down, block the streets with semi's sniper from a rooftop ,chase down the target, choose to work for them ,set up a car bomb, kill the limo driver, throw the kill off the pier, have to disarm traps,and cloak yourself ,dress as the enemy, blend in and plant bombs and take down the whole facility from the inside, betray your employer,find out nuclear secrets, find advanced plans, break into the vault while a party is going on, build a team up sending them on there part of the assignment,4 player co-op one person watching the scene, others making there way in , the getaway driver trying to bust into the compound, the other person coming in air support mini gunning it , 70's rock , russian stations awesome snow effects ,drive into snow piles and hide from pursueing baddies,i dunno

Indeed. It makes me wonder if Agent and the recently announced "1979" games are one in the same, perhaps?

i don't think this is exclusive anymore.

@Newmonday... I think you have Sony confused with MS
MS is the one who is keep losing exclusives like 6 months after release.
CommonSense  +   1192d ago
looked kinda like the RE mansion to me.
NewMonday  +   1192d ago
then why did Jack Tretton and Andrew House refuse to comment about the exclusivity of Agent on 2 separate occasions. both saying to go ask Rockstar.

@newmonday.....I don't know..............
You'll have to go ask Sony.

I don't know about Agent, but Rockstar said on their twitter that they are going to soon reveal some Max Payne 3
ainsz  +   1193d ago
Awesome, thanks for sharing that.

It kinda makes me sad when i think that Rockstar has such a great line up of games but they just never seem to release them. I'm not complaining though, the more development time the better.
crzyjackbauer  +   1193d ago
i hope to get some news on max payne 3
but on a nother topic
these kinda look like the mansion from resident evil remake for the gamecube
the look cool imo
Raf1k1  +   1193d ago
That doesn't look like artwork to me. All the assets in the images are obviously made up of polygonal models. Just looking at the arches you can see they're modelled in 3D. They're in-game screenshots as far as I can tell.
xtreampro  +   1193d ago
I notice that as well, these are in-game screen-shots and not artwork.
gaffyh  +   1193d ago
Yeah it's not artwork, definitely in-engine renders, but they're from 2009, so as far as we know the game could be completely different to this now.

Agent is supposed to be the next big thing as what gta did for the industry. So R* made it exclusive and they are taking their time so that they can make a good game.

Nobody wants a rushed game

Agree or Disagree if you Agree or Disagree
turgore  +   1193d ago
this looks like a middle eastern setting. there is a rumor going on that AGENT is supposed to take place during the Iranian revolution in the 70's.
I think it is an incredible premise and setting - watch Persepolis and you will understand why.

I don't think Agent is still exclusive.

Other than that, these artworks do not blow me away.
LOGICWINS  +   1193d ago
To be fair, this is from 2009. The game will most likely look better than that. I agree that its probably not an exclusive anymore..which doesn't bother me as long as I still get to play it.
DiRtY  +   1193d ago
artwork has nothing to do with graphics. They should give you a feeling for the game. So it doesn't matter how old it is.

Here is an awesome artwork for one of lionhead games.


too bad it was cancelled.

@xtreampro totally agree. Rockstar better have come a lot farther with this game as what I see here is not impressive. Clearly it is work in progress...but whatever these screen shots are of....they are not wowing anyone.
SephirothX21  +   1193d ago
They're probably only early stage screen-shots from back in early development.

sweet, hope its open world, heard somewhere its first person also..
SephirothX21  +   1193d ago
This will be a stealth assassination game and it is not a sandbox game because it is set in many different locations around the world. It was originally a ps2 title that was left off. There was news before that locations would include places in Africa. At least this is proof that the game is in or at least was in development. Likely a late 2013 release with GTA V launching next year. If not cancelled, I still think its a PS3 exclusive because Rockstar North wanted to launch a new franchise by fully utilising the PS3's power.

Looks ok but since it's confirmed that it's coming to the xbox 360 by Sony at E3 i expect the 360 version to be vastly better looking.

have a link that says sony says it's coming to 360? i googled it out of curiosity and can't find any confirmation.
jack tretton DID say that it was up to rockstar where the game would land - and that does sound like it could end up on xbox at some point - but there hasn't been any official confirmation that it's coming to the 360.
MysticStrummer  +   1193d ago
Since nothing of the kind was confirmed, I expect Raven_Nomad to agree with you.

Use common sense and stop being stupid FANBOYS
I find it very sickening that people get on N4G, make derogatory comments, talk trash, Stealth disagree, call people Trolls, and just overall act stupid towards people who are presenting "Opinions based on experiences" and or stating verified FACTS!!

Some of you on here have just turned into Butt-holes cause Agent is No Longer a PS3 Exclusive. So instead of using GOOGLE to find out about something that was first announced by Sony America (SCEA) CEO Jack Trenton HIMSELF on live TV "That Agent is NO Longer a PS3 Exclusive but will be developed to take advantage of the PS3 and be a quality product".

Some of you just Rant like children and post negative comments telling people to prove it or that they are liars. If you were such a True Fan (and not a mindless Fanboy) of the PS3 you would be up to date on current events!

here's the link....read it and grow up!!


this was only aimed at a few nameless people on here and not everyone......Game On!

ooooo stealth disagree lol. to be honest it doesn't bother me anymore weather this game is exclusive or not i just want the damn thing to have a release date and be playing it.

and just to put a counter argument to you your quote isnt a quote lol the article you linked to doesnt say that at all it just says Jack Trenton doesnt know and its upto rockstar
ATi_Elite  +   1193d ago
I was watching the interview LIVE when Jack Trenton said "Agent was no longer a PS3 exclusive"!! Go You-Tube it since your so smart!! everybody skates around words now a days to get web hits and make rumors outta nothing but AGENT is no longer a PS3 Exclusive.

And why would Jack Trenton NOT know if Agent is an Exclusive or not when he is the Sony America (SCEA) CEO for crying out loud! He's the one who makes the deals and signs the checks so Rockstar can make Agent an exclusive and if R* has declined his offer then Jack Trenton is the FIRST to know!!

This is the exact stuff i'm talking about! You have the Dam CEO of the company telling you something and people just wanna argue, disagree, nit pick words and not use common sense.

No Agent footage or info cause R* is busy making a 360 or WiiU version....Duh!

I'm so done with the ignorance in this thread! Believe what you wanna believe but go argue with You-tube or Google!

From: Palm

Message: INCOMING!!!

I'm truly amazed that you can interpret this (Tretton's words)...

"I’m not sure exactly where we’ll land on that, that’s more something for Rockstar to decide, but i’m sure we’ll have a great offering on Agent for Ps3"

...as this (your words)...

"Agent was no longer a PS3 exclusive"

I mean, seriously man, this is basic reading comprehension we are talking about here. He just acknowledged the possibility that it may no longer be exclusive, because at the end of the day, with Rockstar publishing and developing, where the game ends up is entirely up to Rockstar.

Tretton confirmed the possibility that it CAN go multiplatform, not that it HAS gone multiplatform.

This says nothing about Rockstar's intent. It only goes to show that any agreement they entered into with Sony wasn't a contract that Rockstar (or Sony) couldn't opt out of. Rockstar or Sony aren't going to opt into a contract which make it impossible for either party to back out. But just because Rockstar CAN back out, it doesn't mean they will.

100% exactly MrBeatdown
go to RockStar games official sites:

an look at what platforms are listed for the game! how freaking hard is that for some people,here let me help...i will once again post the info..from Rockstar's Home page, an their official site for this game.

look for the games by platform:

first xbox360...nope no Agent there:


than by the PS3



first the intro right from their official site:

about this game

Rockstar Games is proud to announce Agent. Developed by the people behind Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar North, Agent will be available exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

Agent takes players on a paranoid journey into the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations during the height of the Cold War at the end of the 1970's.

please notice:

"Agent will be available exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system."


official site for the game:


once again the only platform that's listed is the PS3 for this game.

Granted anything could change, but this seems like the MGS:4 all over again

it's coming to the xbox360..it will it has too.lol
