Sony Computer Entertainment is announcing the launch of The Getaway: Black Monday
, the sequel to the three-million worldwide best-seller and ?Greatest Hits? title, The Getaway
, created exclusively for the PlayStation 2. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe?s Team Soho, The Getaway: Black Monday
fuses gaming and cinema into one medium, providing players with an exciting, in-depth, interactive entertainment experience, as gamers make ?moral choices? in the gangland thriller that will determine their path through the story, concluding with one of the multiple endings. Team Soho used more than 25 square miles of London, adding 17 new locations for the sequel, including rooftops and portions of the ?Underground? subway to give The Getaway: Black Monday
a truly authentic look at the London criminal world.
Three very different Londoners? lives collide in The Getaway: Black Monday, which culminates in an explosive showdown with London?s new gangland boss, Viktor Skobel. Gamers will piece together parts of three new playable character?s stories -- Sergeant Ben Mitchell, who works in tandem with the Metropolitan Police?s firearms division, Eddie O?Connor, the boxer, and Sam, the stealthy thief and computer hacker -- all while making critical moral decisions that will influence the final outcome of the game.
