This morning, at its annual E3 press conference, Nintendo showed a brief trailer for Ubisoft's recently trademarked C.O.P. The Recruit. Described as an action adventure, the game appears to incorporate third-person on-foot shooting sequences, as well as high-speed vehicles that include a police car, a monster truck, a speedboat, and presumably lots more. Most of the gameplay in the trailer took place outdoors, but protagonist Dan Miles (a plays-by-his-own-rules cop, no doubt) also appeared inside a large casino at one point.
Unlike Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, which is perhaps the most obvious game to compare C.O.P. The Recruit to, the upcoming game employs a more traditional third-person perspective. When you're driving, one of the screens will be used to display a map of the city, which appeared to be comparable in size to Chinatown Wars' Liberty. We look forward to bringing you more information on C.O.P. The Recruit just as soon as we can get our hands on it; hopefully, on the E3 show floor later this week.
