Maximum Games today announced the November 10th release date of the 1960s Cold War stealth game, Alekhine’s Gun, with a brand new cinematic teaser trailer. Alekhine’s Gun is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and PC.
“Whether you surprise attack with straightforward combat or use more manipulative measures to take out enemies, a huge part of the game is to move through each environment without being exposed, and players will be rewarded for doing so.”
Set in a time of extreme civil unrest, Alekhine’s Gun begins with a flashback to the late days of the Second World War, and follows the events leading to the assassination of John F. Kennedy and beyond. Featuring high-stakes, choice-based gameplay, Alekhine’s Gun will put players in the shoes of KGB colonel turned CIA spy, Agent Alekhine, as he finds himself tangled in a conspiracy that could have global consequences.
As a trained assassin and CIA operative, Alekhine boasts a wealth of abilities to dispose of enemies, several of which are alluded to in Maximum Games’ new video. Explore open levels with multiple hidden routes and rooms, remaining undetected in order to accomplish varied missions.
“Stealth is critical in this game,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games. “Whether you surprise attack with straightforward combat or use more manipulative measures to take out enemies, a huge part of the game is to move through each environment without being exposed, and players will be rewarded for doing so.”
Combining the intrigue of Cold War espionage with the thrill of combat maneuvers, Alekhine’s Gun blends the real history of the nuclear arms race and communist paranoia with conspiracy theories and corruption for an enthralling new narrative that puts you at the center of the conflict, tasking you to unravel the conspiracy infecting the world at large.
Alekhine’s Gun is scheduled to release for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 10, 2015, and is not yet rated by the ESRB.
