SOE Fan Faire '07: The Agency: Q&A with Hal Milton and Matt Wilson

The Spies Who Loved Us

At SOE's 2007 Fan Faire Ten Ton Hammer got a special screening of The Agency lead by Lead Designer Hal Milton and Design Director Matt Wilson where they answered questions regarding game features. Player versus player, combat mechanics, skill progression and sweet spy cars were discussed in detail. 

The preview started out with Hal Milton explaining exactly what niche The Agency was looking to fill. He stated they are looking to put players in a "persistent online world" meaning something is always going on even when you aren't around. The experience doesn't just end when you log off, the world continues to move and evolve. A "serendipitous interaction" between players and the game will extend life beyond the leader boards and the ordinary.
