Sony is developing a game based on the hit television show 24, and plans to have it released by spring this year.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Cambridge Studio is creating the game, and is working in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox and 24's producers, directors, writers and actors. The game will be set between seasons two and three of the show, and will feature another bad day in Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) member Jack Bauer's life.
Fans of the show should find plenty of goodies in the game, with a release from Sony stating the game would resolve many "unanswered questions", such as: "who was really behind the assassination attempt on President Palmer? How did Kim Bauer get a job in the L.A. CTU? How did Jack Bauer and Chase Edmunds first start working together?"
24: The Game will have multiple character plots and strands and over 100 missions covering multiple genres of game-play including: on-foot sections with shooting, stealth, puzzles and sniping; driving challenges varying from stealthy tailing to high-speed pursuits; interrogations where you have to coerce information out of suspects; and gadget sections including decoding information and examining satellite images.
The game will feature many of the stars from the first three seasons, including Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), Kim Bauer (Elisha Cuthbert), Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard), and more.
