Leigh Donoghue, a environment artist who has worked on Grand Theft Auto IV has posted some screenshots of work he did on a game he’s calling “Agent” as part of his profile.
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.
hmm interesting, the environment looks very middle eastern
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.
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.
@Gaffyh I thought of Hitman too, weird!
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.....
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.
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.
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.
Finally we got.. something!!! All we had been shown since E3 09 is the picture of the logo :P
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
@M410N3 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.
ah yeah, very good point actually. I'd like to see an option to travel between countries, that'd be awesome =).
Agent is competing with FFvsXIII for the "Biggest Vaporware of the Gen" award.
MS is the one who is keep losing exclusives like 6 months after release.
looked kinda like the RE mansion to me.
@DualConsoleOwner 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.
You'll have to go ask Sony. *wink*
I don't know about Agent, but Rockstar said on their twitter that they are going to soon reveal some Max Payne 3
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.
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
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.
I notice that as well, these are in-game screen-shots and not artwork.
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.
ZOMFG DOWNGRADE!!! I kid, I kid. Good to see this take one more step away from being vaporware.
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
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.
ps2 graphics .... and that's my opinion
Even for artwork, it looks good. Then again, im not expecting much of this game. If it still exist that is.
I don't think Agent is still exclusive. Other than that, these artworks do not blow me away.
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.
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. http://www.gamingonly.nl/im... too bad it was cancelled.
That's because it's not artwork. Look at the images closely. They're pretty much in-game screenshots.
Yeah, these screens tell us nothing about this game...
It lives! Maybe
seriuosly R*, we don't even know how it looks we only saw the logo, come on show us something.
So true - even a new logo in different color would at least grave my need for more info on this game.
Well it's about time. Setting is unexpected.
As long as they dont gimp the PS3 version it could go multiplat for all i care. Anyways this is one strange title just one vid where they show the logo and after that zip nada.
The textures look amazing on the wall. At least we know it was being worked on. In 09.
What!? those screens look horrible and the game's supposed to be set in the 1970's so what the heck is with the screenshots? It clearly isn't finished by the looks of it
@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.
They're probably only early stage screen-shots from back in early development.
These are from 2009.
They probably dug this up from the same secret underground bunker that they're hiding Sorcery and The Last Guardian. How about some news?
Cant wait for this game to come out on the Xbox 360! Gonna be sick with XBL!
The troll emerges!!
if I had a penny for every time you didn't troll Raven, I'd have no pennies.
this guy has alot of dreams
@ kingslayer1000 And it's your job to destroy those dreams.
No exclusives for Xbox 360 is making desperate the trolls like Nomad.
. You actually want a PS3 exclusive to come the 360!
@ Frigid: No, it really wasn't.
What's it about?, Im getting no sense of gameplay style from these screens.
its not an exclusive so i don't care keep it
sweet, hope its open world, heard somewhere its first person also..
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.
I would love to see that.
I hope we'll see this this yr.
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.
Since nothing of the kind was confirmed, I expect Raven_Nomad to agree with you.
It would suck that this game went multiplat when Rockstar said this was exclusive for the PS3. Hope there's news soon.
It doesn't look interesting at all. Stick to what you do best, Rockstar. Open-world gameplay.
I'm sick of open world games. Uncharted or Killzone are better than any open world game.
