    Who Wants to Live Forever?

    Deine Mission: Schlüpf in die Rolle von Cate Archer, einer hübschen, aber auch gefährlichen Agentin, die im Auftrag von UNITY agiert - einer Geheimorganisation, die die Welt vor dem Einfluss von H.A.R.M befreien will. Du musst List und Tücke anwenden und dich auch im direkten Kampf beweisen. No One Lives Forever ist ein 60er Jahre-Spionagespiel, das dir hochentwickelte Waffen, nervenaufreibende internationale Schauplätze und gefährliche Gegner bietet. Du bist mit zahlreichen Spezialwaffen und ausgeklügelten Gegenständen ausgestattet und musst ein Mysterium lösen, das dich um die halbe Welt führt. Nur du kannst die Antworten finden. Also bleib ganz ruhig und erledige deinen Job gut.

    [captions]:

    15 Missionen mit über 60 Levels. Einzigartige nervenaufreibende Situationen, mit denen nur eine Top-Agentin fertig werden kann, wie z.B. einen Fallschirmsprung aus einem abstürzenden Flugzeug, ein Kampf mit Killerhaien oder das Erkunden gefährlicher Dschungel.

    Wähle deine Waffen mit Bedacht: Ein AK-47-Sturmgewehr und eine 9mm-Automatikwaffe mit Schalldämpfer oder ein M79 Granatwerfer sowie einer unauffällige, aber äußerst effektive Scharfschützen-Armbrust stehen dir zur Verfügung.

    Multiplayer-Modus für bis zu 16 Spieler. Hier geht es um alles oder nichts. Spiele Gut gegen Böse oder tritt Mann gegen Mann im Deathmatch-Modus an. Wähle aus über 30 verschiedenen Charakteren.

    Clevere Gegner bewegen und verhalten sich absolut authentisch. Sie verstecken sich, reagieren auf auffällige Geräusche und starten überraschende Angriffe.

    Fahr Motorrad oder Schneemobil in einer weiten, realistischen und texturreichen Umgebung mit hohem Detaillevel.

    Tarn dich, um den Gegener aus der Entfernung zu überwältigen oder greif ihn direkt an.

Press Release:

    FOX INTERACTIVE CASTS ELITE MODEL AS THE MUSE
    FOR ITS NEW 60s SPY ADVENTURE
    "No One Lives Forever" Brings Sexiness and Sophistication to the PC

    LOS ANGELES (May 11, 2000) -- Fox Interactive today announced at The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) that Elite model and former L’Oreal cover girl, Mitzi Martin, has been cast as the muse for the lead character in its upcoming 60s spy, first-person adventure, No One Lives Forever. Martin’s likeness and features will form the cyber model for Agent Archer, the beautiful, but deadly, female operative who braves corrupt agents and other evil forces to protect important international diplomats.

    "Fox Interactive wanted to redefine the 60s spy adventure genre for No One Lives Forever and project the title’s style and sophistication," said Karly Young, director of worldwide brand marketing, Fox Interactive. "We searched both domestically and internationally for the right look and attitude for Agent Archer and found exactly what we were looking for in Mitzi Martin – beauty, strength and sex appeal."

    Fox Interactive has taken an innovative approach to mold a real-life face and personality as the lead character in an original game. In an extensive model search for the perfect Agent Archer look, Fox Interactive interviewed hundreds of beautiful women around the world – the first-of-its-kind casting call for the interactive entertainment industry. Fox Interactive chose Mitzi Martin for this groundbreaking project. Martin has modeled for L’Oreal, Maybelline and Lubriderm and shot with the industry’s top photographers including Herb Ritts, Patrick DeMarchellier and Mathew Rolston.

    "We are not surprised with Fox Interactive’s decision to use Mitzi in No One Lives Forever," said Elizabeth Costa of Elite Modeling. "After reading the game’s story, we knew Mitzi had the perfect look they were searching for— beautiful, piercing blue eyes that exemplify sophistication."

    60s Style Looks That Kill
    No One Lives Forever plans to bring style and sexiness to the classic 60s spy adventure genre. The title will be an exciting story-driven game that delivers over-the-top action, tense subterfuge, outrageous villains and wry humor. Players assume the role of Agent Archer armed with an assortment of conventional and experimental weaponry and gadgets as they explore exotic locales, circumvent devious traps and contend with deadly agents determined to take her out of the spy trade once and for all.

    A Lethal Cosmetic Case
    Players will enjoy the action in 15 challenging single player missions and ten multiplayer levels including death match and cooperative assault. The cooperative assault missions allow gamers to team up against each other and accomplish story-driven goals. Players must utilize more than 30 unique weapons and extravagant gadgets such as a rocket launcher briefcase, robotic poodle, exploding lipstick and lethal acid perfume to defeat more than 20 outrageous characters and their henchman. Spy fans and gamers alike will enjoy hours of gameplay in exotic locales and in expansive outdoor environments including Morocco, Germany and the French Alps.

    No One Lives Forever is being developed by Seattle-based Monolith Productions and will be available on the PC in Q4 2000 and on PlayStation2 in 2001.
