Rockstar's Agent "Very, Very Different" From GTAS

What do we know about Rockstar North's PlayStation 3 exclusive title Agent? Not much, other than that Rockstar founder Sam Houser believes that Agent, set in the 1970s and full of delicious espionage, will be "the ultimate action game."

Take-Two CEO Ben Feder sheds a little more light on the mysterious PS3 game to Eurogamer, saying that Agent will feature "very, very different storylines, very different character development" from the wildly successful Rockstar North series Grand Theft Auto.

"It's a game about espionage, set in the 1970s. GTA is obviously more about an urban experience, a typically rags to riches experience," Feder says. "It's going to be very fresh for gamers."

The Take-Two CEO doesn't have much to share beyond that, opting to opine "I think gamers will be blown away by it."

Officially, Take-Two says that "Agent takes players on a paranoid journey into the world of counter-intelligence, espionage and political assassinations during the height of the Cold War at the end of the 1970s."

As to whether it's truly a third-party exclusive to one particular console, as almost no games are these days, Feder doesn't say, instead offering "we don't disclose anything beyond what we've already said."
