NCIS video game announced

Ubisoft partners with CBS.

Ubisoft and CBS are making a NCIS video game.

The game based on the TV drama launches on Nintendo 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 on 28th October 2011.

You play as characters from the series and search for clues to solve murder, espionage and terrorist cases. The game includes four original NCIS episodes written and developed with the writers of the show.

Playable characters include agents Ziva David, Tony DiNozzo, Abby Sciuto, Ducky Mallard, special agent Gibbs and special agent McGee.

Environments include a casino in Atlantic City and a luxury hotel in Dubai. There are mini-games and activities "to keep you on your toes". You can bond with the NCIS characters, apparently, and experience the group's "humour, personality quirks and defining characteristics".

The game's debut trailer and screenshots are below.
