'Gangs of London' (PSP) - Features and Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST

Set in the mean and moody streets of London, this title isn't for the faint-hearted. Action meets strategy as you take on London's fiercest gangs in a bid for domination of the capital. With the opportunity to play as one of five gangs, you have to use brains and brawn to overcome the rival criminal factions and gain control of the city's underworld. Become the guv'nor of the Cockney, Triad, Yardie, Russian or Pakistani gangs and take on the capital over a number of unique and challenging game modes:

Created by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's London Studio, developers of The Getaway franchise, Gangs of London was designed specifically for the PSP and will be presented in stunning graphic-novel style narratives. Dynamic storylines enable each player to experience their own unique progression in nearly 60 different missions that immerse gamers in an elite criminal underworld in modern day London. Complete with new gameplay modes, Gangs of London provides intense free-roaming gameplay perfectly tailored for a handheld system.

Gangs of London offers a variety of modes of play including Story Mode, Gang Battle, Free Roaming, London Pub Games and a unique Game Sharing mode. Each mission is separated with narratives that guide players through the background story of criminal masterminds fighting for the right to be called London’s number one gangster. Gamers can re-play missions from different gang perspectives. If it’s pickup and play gaming that players are looking for, Gangs of London also offers a set of British Pub mini-games that include darts, pool and skittles.

Gangs of London also supports a completely original Game Share mode that will generate a new level unique to each PSP system, with the content dependent on the serial number of the target system. Once activated, players will find themselves faced with uniquely different mission objectives, environments, characters and weaponry.
