The Agency, which is currently in production for both PS3 & PC, will not be your typical MMO. The game is set in a world where players are spies. The developers promise you won’t spend 5+ hours in order to have fun in the game. The Agency will allow players to jump in the game and start enjoying the game the moment they step into the game world.
The one thing that will set this game apart from the others is how you will interact with the game without being in the game world. You will be able to set up alerts that can go to your cell phone or IM client of choice that will update you on what’s going on while you’re gone.
