Frontier's new 'next generation' game - "The Outsider” is a gripping, high-tech thriller played out against the backdrop of a living, crowded city based on present-day Washington DC and its environs including the CIA HQ at Langley, Andrews Air Force Base and Newport News Naval Dockyard. As a CIA operative the player has a mouth-watering arsenal of technology, combat talents and weaponry available to him.

A shocking opening scenario wrongly makes him Public Enemy Number One in the eyes of the media and the public at large, but leaves many different ways to proceed: to wreak ultra-violent revenge, to turn the tables and exploit the shady organisations he is mixed up with for his own ends or crusading to clear his name.

The game radically enriches the player’s experience by abandoning the traditional, prescriptive, mostly linear story of current generation games, and replaces it by simulating characters’ motivations and aims. This gives the player genuine freedom to change the story outcomes in a way that has not been seen before - each player will get a truly unique, sophisticated, visceral experience rather than simply switching between ‘good’ or ‘evil’. The techniques used are enabled by the greatly increased processing power available to the imminent new consoles like PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Braben: Second-hand sales "killing single player game... (4)
Frontier Developments' founder David Braben shakes his fist menacingly at the pre-owned games market, because it's "really killed core games." Retailers prefer to rely on 'the churn'.

He said he knows publishers who cancel projects because some retailers "won't reorder stock after initial release," but single player is hit hardest. They're "super high risk."
