London, 16th February 2005 –- Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Pursuit Force, a fast-paced arcade-action game, that fuses driving and combat mechanics to create a unique gaming experience for PSPTM. Developed by Bigbig Studios, a new development team that pulls together some of the leading creative talent in the gaming industry, Pursuit Force follows the misadventures of a rookie Police Officer tracking down five criminal gangs across an entire fictional state in America.
Playing a young, cocky, street tough cop, the player is tasked with bringing to justice five of the Capital City's most infamous gangs, including 'The Killer 66', a deadly gang of far eastern origin - perhaps the greatest threat to the security of the entire state! Assisted by the old-school, short-tempered Chief of the Pursuit Force who likes to play by the book, players find themselves immersed in an adrenaline fuelled, high speed chase across 400km of city streets, freeways and off-road tracks, in their battle to outsmart the bad guys and rid the state of crime.
Pursuit Force features more than 30 heavy action cases to crack, set across five distinctly unique districts, with their own hazards and dangers. The player must exploit the unique ability to leap between a variety of different vehicles whilst racing at breakneck speeds of over 150mph.
Prepare to engage in intense combat with gang members whilst hanging onto moving vehicles, dodge bullets and defy the natural forces of gravity to avoid being thrown off whilst on the move – all in the Pursuit of Justice!
Pursuit Force is set to reinvigorate the action-driving genre in Autumn 2005. For more information about Pursuit Force, please contact your local PR Manager.
