by November 7, 2019 0 comments

One of India’s favourite game of the yore, Project IGI’s new instalment, Project IGI Origins was announced last year. A few weeks ago, the studios responsible for its development, Antimatter Studios and Toadman Studios, announced that the development was well underway. We did not know much regarding the game, except for the fact that it would be the prequel to the original IGI. Yesterday, not only did the developers released a teaser but also announced a tentative release date for the game. 

Posting the trailer on the community discord, their discord community Admin DaTau said that “the I.G.I. Origins development is progressing extremely well.” 

According to what we can see in the teaser, the game will be set in the 1980’s in Gdansk, Poland. From what can be seen in the trailer, the main focus of the game seems to be on stealth. The protagonist wears a red beret. Even though the description on the game’s Steam listing reveals that the protagonist works for MI6, red berets in the UK are worn by the Parachute Regiment. The description of the game reads: 

“The prequel to 2000’s Project I.G.I.: Experience a high octane thrill ride through a spy fantasy world of gadgets and guns against the vivid, sumptuous backdrop of the 1980s. Unravel a mystery that threatens to plunge the world into a new era of nuclear annihilation. You’re going in.” 

In the about section, it is revealed that the MI6 agent we take control of will be codenamed “Regent”. This will a change from the original protagonist, Jones, who was a SAS agent.  

“The year is 1980. You play code name “Regent” an agent in the service of MI6 on active duty. Tasked with critical responsibilities of national security, Regent will undertake a series of missions across the world to achieve the objectives of Spy paymasters in a dramatic, filmic experience that explores the origins of the Institute of Geotactical Intelligence. Using a variety of weapons and gadgets at your disposal, your actions will determine the boundaries of where friends and enemies lay, as you seek to uncover the truth behind events leading to world shattering ramifications.” 

The official requirements for the game have not been revealed, though the release date is slated to be somewhere around 2021.
