SEGA has released a video dev diary for Alpha Protocol, an espionage role-playing game in the works at Obsidian Entertainment. The main character in Alpha Protocol, Thorton, a talented young agent cast out by his government, is the only one with the information needed to stop an impending international catastrophe. To do so means he must cut himself off from the very people he is sworn to protect. As players determine how to accomplish different objectives, the decisions made and actions taken in each mission will ultimately transform the type of secret agent Michael Thorton will become. Every choice the player makes as Michael Thorton will carry consequences for his future and the fate of the world. Alpha Protocol will be available on February 17 2009, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
