The Outsider

Another living, breathing world - with the chops to back the claim up

The framework in which Braben’s ambitions will be realized is a political thriller with elements of 24 and The Fugitive - but, as he insists, the plot itself is very much down to you, and not just in the “choose the good or evil path” way that we’re more than used to by now. You take on the role of an unnamed CIA operative who’s placed in the frame for murdering the President in the very opening minutes of the game. What happens next is your call - you can clear your name, wreak revenge on the perpetrators, or even join them and bring down the whole US government. Or just wander round shooting indiscriminately - this game won’t tell you what to do, and it won’t push you in any direction via pre-scripted cut-scenes. Whatever happens, happens - and you’re in control.
