Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has today released the first information on The Getaway 2, which was confirmed in December. The game will once again be set in London, but it will not see players reprising the roles of either former crook Mark Hammond or police officer Frank Carter.
It's not yet clear how many playable characters will be included in The Getaway 2, but SCEE has today released a profile of the game's main character, Eddie O'Connor. A part-time fighter, part-time bouncer, and occasional hired muscle, O'Connor is apparently something of a local celebrity in London's East End as a result of his amateur boxing success. All we've been told about the game's plot at this time is that the same values that make O'Connor a good guy to stay on the right side of could drag him into a world that he can't control.
Make of that what you will, but it sounds to us like O'Connor could be playing the role of a reluctant villain similar to Mark Hammond in The Getaway. We'll bring you more information on The Getaway 2 as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, be sure to check out today's screenshots, which, strangely, don't feature a single double-decker bus, London taxi, or vehicle of any description.
