Gaming companies are getting into the war and spy games in a big way. One of the latest on the gamewar map is ESPionage, which Midway Games Inc. has in development and is expected to ship in Fall 2003 for the PlayStation2, Xbox and GameCube. ESPionage is the first action/stealth game to integrate traditional weapons combat with extensive Psi (psychic) mind powers. Combating a terrorist movement set to overthrow world order, Nick Geller an elite American Psi-Operative fights using telekinesis (lifting and throwing objects), pyrokinesis (controlling fire), remote viewing (going "out-of-body" to plan attacks), mind drain (draining Psi energy from enemies), aura view ("seeing" elements that arent visible in the real world) and mind control (taking control of enemies) to fight against an army of programmed, psychic terrorist super soldiers that will stop at nothing to reach their goal. Players will also have access to traditional weapons such as handguns and automatic weaponry. Enemies are equipped with deep AI, adaptive artificial intelligence, making the bad guys extremely aware of the players actions to respond and deliver more intense, realistic fighting. As players strategically navigate seven huge immersive levels within four distinct compounds, they encounter multiple ways to solve missions.
