Monolith reveals NOLF spin-off

Contract Jack, it's called.

Monolith has released details of its latest title in the No One Lives Forever franchise. As opposed to delivering another sequel, the developer is backtracking to create a spin-off prequel called Contract Jack. The player takes up the role of John Jack, a contract killer working for H.A.R.M. in a story that begins just after the events in NOLF1 and criss-crosses and triggers events in NOLF2. Apparently the title will offer a far more action-based experience than its predecessors alongside a more robust multiplayer element. Here's some screenshots for you, scamps.
