    Return to the dangerous streets of London in the hard-hitting, uncompromising sequel to the smash hit gangster thriller.

    With its mix of gritty, adult storyline, car chases, shoot-outs and a photo-realistic Central London, it's not surprising the original Getaway sold over 3 million copies. Now it's back, bigger, brassier and bloodier than ever before with the blockbuster sequel The Getaway: Black Monday.

    Explore over 40 square kilometres of stunningly real London streets, including Trafalgar Square, Oxford Street and the Thames Embankment, all closely recreated from photographs and video footage of the areas. As the dark tale of London gangland unfolds, you'll explore the four corners of England's capital on foot and in a variety of vehicles, including Police motorbikes, Smart cars and the iconic red double-decker buses.

    Three London lives are about to collide in a cloud of violence, intrigue and murder. It's the first day on the job for Sergeant Mitchell, newly recruited to the Metropolitan Police's firearms division. When a dawn raid on an East London council estate turns nasty, it sets in motion a chain of deadly events that will see Mitch up against the most powerful man in London.

    Across town, boxing hard-man Eddie O'Connor is beaten bloody after a bank job goes wrong and leaves many of his crew dead. He's in over his head and his only ally is a foul-mouthed petty crook called Sam who's as tough as she is pretty.

    The next 48 hours will be a matter of life, death and heavy Congestion Charge fees for all three of them.

    • Improves on the ground-breaking photo-realism of the original adding new locations such as the Thames river, the London Underground and the interiors of actual buildings for an even more 'real' London experience


    • Three playable character - a cop, a thug and a thief


    • Improved car physics and a greater selection of vehicles offer an even better ride


    • Gritty, hard-hitting dialogue taken straight from the seedy underworld of London's violent gangland
