True Crime: New York City, the follow-up to True Crime: Streets of LA, is in stores now. The game puts players into the role of Marcus Reed, a former gang member turned cop who confronts four of New York’s most deadly crime syndicates as he hunts down the murderer of his mentor, all while cleaning up neighborhoods from Chinatown to Harlem to Times Square.
“True Crime: New York City is the first game to deliver the ultimate urban drama set against a realistic version of Manhattan,” said Will Kassoy, vice president of global brand management for Activision Publishing. “The game’s deep and diverse gameplay takes players into the city’s neighborhoods, buildings and subways and lets them virtually experience the city in a way that has never been possible in a videogame.”
In True Crime: New York City players turn in or take out informants, killers and criminals as they navigate an authentic recreation of a present-day Manhattan, which includes landmarks, subways, interiors, GPS-accurate streets and real neighborhoods. At your disposal are five fighting styles, advanced weaponry, special driving maneuvers and all-new interrogation tactics. The voice-over talent includes Christopher Walken, Laurence Fishburne, Mickey Rourke, and even Beetlejuice (from the Howard Stern show).
