Gotham Games has today announced the North American release of The Great Escape for the PC, PlayStation 2, and Xbox. The game, which has been developed by Pivotal Games, is based on the 1963 Steve McQueen movie of the same name and challenges players to escape from the Stalag Luft III POW camp in 1944.

The gameplay in The Great Escape is both stealth- and combat-based, and as players progress through the game's 18 levels they'll control multiple characters with such specialized skills as lock-picking, impersonating Nazi soldiers, and picking pockets.
