Activision doing Secret Service game

Tactical action for PC, Xbox 360 and PS2.

Activision has unveiled Secret Service, a tactical first person action game for PC, Xbox 360 and PS2. We're told to expect the title before the end of the year - rather sudden.

Secret Service casts players as an elite operative protecting the president from an extremist attack on Washington DC during Inauguration Day. Only this is more complicated than it sounds: friends soon turn to foes as the plot twists and revelations are made.

Developer Cauldron, noted for work on the Soldier of Fortune: Payback, is behind the wheel, and the game appears to a budget release. Specific European details are unknown, but we're checking them out.
