Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Spy Hunter, a reboot of the legendary combat driving series, specially developed for PlayStation Vita by TT Fusion.
On the eve of the franchise's 30th anniversary since the original Spy Hunter was released to arcades in 1983, the new Spy Hunter races forward on its most thrilling and dangerous ride yet. The player once again takes on the role of the "Agent", the driver of the high-tech G-6155 Interceptor supercar, armed extensively with advanced weaponry, and ready to take on a global terrorist organisation set on world domination.
"Spy Hunter's classic gameplay has been upgraded to give PlayStation Vita players a new, adrenaline-charged experience," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Gamers now have more choice in the transformation and customisation with greater hand controls, brilliant graphics and enhanced action cameras."
The Interceptor seamlessly transforms from supercar to off-road assault vehicle to speed boat, allowing players to go where they like within the game's branching mission tracks. Players can choose to outfit and upgrade the Interceptor's many weapons and high tech gadgets as they like throughout the course of the game. And for the first time, the Agent will have additional support in the form of an unmanned aerial support drone, allowing players to plan their destruction when assaulting enemy agent strongholds.
Spy Hunter also features thrilling crash choreography and a camera system that follows the action in slow motion to let players savour the destruction they created.
Check out the Spy Hunter launch trailer on YouTube. The game will be available in Spring 2012.
