Codemasters Gets Criminal In HEIST

Codemasters has announced that their new game HEIST will be coming to the PC and Xbox 360. It chucks players into the big bad shoes of criminals running amok in San Francisco in 1969. Specifically, you'll be robbing banks, pulling jobs, getting caught up in high-speed car chases with cops and shoot-outs as you work toward your ultimate goal - breaking into the San Francisco Mint. Sounds a bit like Ocean's Eleven meets Bullitt. HEIST's publisher Codemasters fills us in on the plot: "It's 1969, the summer of love in San Francisco. Enter Johnny Sutton, fresh out of jail and a descendant from a long line of big-time thieves, including his father who was gunned down during a job some years back. "Playing as Johnny, and together with his Uncle Sal and reunited crew, players are set pull off dozens of heists that will inevitably make a name for him as the greatest bank robber of all time." The game's being developed by inXile (responsible for recent The Bard's Tale remake), and the company's creative director Maxx Kaufman has explained the dev has designed HEIST "so that players feel like a part of the best robberies and car chases from classic movies". "Everything from the different types of jobs to pull and the reckless pursuits by the police through the streets of San Francisco, to the sarcastic banter back and forth between the members of the crew, gives HEI$T the action and style of the great attitude and rock-driven films of the 60's." HEI$T is currently pencilled in for release in the fourth quarter of 2007.
