Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is pleased to announce the November release of 'The Getaway Black Monday' the follow up to the platinum selling The Getaway. Exclusive to PlayStation?2 and developed again by Team Soho, 'The Getaway Black Monday' is set in a real living breathing London, complete with clogged up roads full of cars, motorcycles and the congestion charge!
'The Getaway Black Monday' is set two years after the events on the Sol Vita. London has moved on. It's Sergeant Mitchell's first day back on the Met's (Metropolitan Police) firearms squad, and it's going to be one to remember; a dawn raid on a council estate turns nasty. But that's just the beginning...the next 48 hours will see him come up against the most powerful man in London.
Meanwhile on the other side of the City Boxer Eddie O'Connor is getting a severe beating; the bank job went horribly wrong, his crew are decimated. Bodies are continuing to drop left, right and centre. His only ally in this whole mess is Sam, a lightweight thief more comfortable with nicking laptops than extreme violence. He knows he's way out of his depth - now his friends are dead and somebody is going to have to pay.
'The Getaway Black Monday' takes these three very different perspectives of a dark 48 hour period and weaves them together unpredictably to create a sophisticated compelling narrative. Central London streets are again mapped in great detail, while real world interior locations are key in keeping the twisting narrative flowing. The real world locations in 'The Getaway Black Monday' include an East End boxing gym, an old snooker club, thrilling chases across rooftops and pivotal game sections featuring the famous London Underground, amongst many others.
'The Getaway Black Monday' promises to take you on a tour of the dark side of London. The side of London you don't see, the side that exists alongside the Red busses, the changing of the guard, Big Ben, telephone boxes and Buckingham palace. The side where murder and violence are the answer to life's problems...
