In development at Japanese studio feelplus, Mindjack places players in the turbulent world of 2031, when the planet is beset with political unrest. They will assume the role of Jim Corbijn, a federal agent equipped with high-tech devices that allow him to "hack" the minds of enemies or civilians and control vehicles to control their respective abilities. His skills will come in handy once he is sucked into a netherworld of intrigue where corporations battle countries for supremacy.

In terms of gameplay, Mindjack will feature drop-in multiplayer that will allow players to join friends' single-player campaigns in progress. The game will also award experience points, which will sharpen Corbijn's suite of abilities.

Mindjack has not yet been rated by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's latest preview.
