Midway Games Inc. (NYSE: MWY), a leading interactive entertainment publisher and developer, announced today that Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy has just shipped to retail outlets nationwide for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft. Melding the extensive use of psi (mind) powers and traditional weapons, players take on the role of Nick Scryer, an elite psi-operative soldier capable of wielding six incredible powers; Telekinesis, Pyrokinesis, Mind Control, Mind Drain, Remote View and Aura View.
"Psi-Ops’ intense, fast-paced action blended with strategic decision making and challenging puzzle elements, offers gamers a fresh take on the action/adventure genre," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "With stunning visuals and smart game design, Psi-Ops truly raises the bar for what a third-person action title should be."
Psi-Ops’ blend of Psi powers and traditional weaponry provides gamers with unique gameplay attributes that set it apart from others in the action/adventure genre. As Scryer’s Psi powers are reawakened, he must use them to take down The Movement, a terrorist organization set to overthrow world order. Using Telekinesis, Mind Control, Pyrokinesis, Mind Drain, Aura View and Remote View, Scryer must fight strategically against The Movement in order to win a very serious "mind game" against an amassed army of brainwashed terrorist super soldiers and powerful Psi agents.
Psi-Ops offers players a unique gameplay experience, stellar graphics and a ground-breaking hybrid of the Havok 2 physics engine that allows gamers to manipulate almost any object in the interactive world, when using Psi powers.
