Today, Ubisoft and CBS Consumer Products announced the development of an all-new video game based on the top-rated drama series, NCIS. The game will be available worldwide for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, Windows PC and Wii system, on October 27, 2011. I am a huge fan of the series, along with my wife – so this is very pleasing to me if they can get this right, and not be like the CSI games that have been released prior by Ubisoft.
For the first time ever, the world of the NCIS TV drama series comes to life on home and portable gaming consoles and Windows PC. Fans can play as their favorite characters from the NCIS series and search for clues to solve complex murder, espionage and terrorist cases. The game features four original NCIS episodes written and developed with the writers of the hit TV show.
· PLAY AS THE CAST, BE PART OF THE FAMILY – Take on the role of your favorite character from the NCIS team and use their special skills and field expertise to solve the crime. Investigate crime scenes as agents Ziva David and Tony DiNozzo, conduct forensics analyses as Abby Sciuto, perform victim autopsies as Ducky Mallard, interrogate and break suspects as special agent Gibbs, and use satellite tracking to apprehend bad guys on the run as special agent McGee.
· EMBARK ON YOUR OWN NCIS ADVENTURE – Written with the writers of the hit TV show, embark on an all-new NCIS story arc complete with four original NCIS episodes. Travel to exotic environments, from a casino in Atlantic City to a luxury hotel in Dubai. Discover exciting connections between the four cases as you crack each one, and work toward solving the entire investigation.
· TOTAL IMMERSION INTO THE WORLD OF NCIS – Use your guts and cutting edge technology to solve cases. Engaging mini-games and activities keep you on your toes: scour crime scenes for clues, collect evidence, use the latest forensic tools to perform autopsies, and conduct dramatic interrogations of your most promising suspects. Put the clues together using your wits to deduct the truth!
· EXPERIENCE NCIS TEAM CAMARADERIE – Bond with your favorite NCIS characters and experience the group’s humor, personality quirks and defining characteristics. Interact with the characters through compelling layers of storyline and dialogue designed to make you an integral member of the team.
The NCIS video game is based on NCIS, the #1 rated drama series on television in the US, averaging 20 million primetime viewers. NCIS is currently in its ninth season and airs in more than 120 territories worldwide.
