Supermassive Games has given us an insight into the new crime thriller, Hidden Agenda.
Hidden Agenda is designed to be a part of the PlayStation 4 “PlayLink” system. PlayLink cancels out the DualShock 4 controllers and puts the control in the grasp of your phones. PlayLink titles are designed to have up to six players journeying through the interactive stories.
Here’s a breakdown of what Hidden Agenda is all about, including a video developer diary:
We’ve taken inspiration from various neo-noir thrillers to craft a tale of betrayal and revenge, set in a rainy, rundown city. You play Detective Becky Marney and District Attorney Felicity Graves as they hunt down the “Trapper” — a serial killer who rigs his victims with explosives to murder the responding officers.
This video gives you an overview of the game’s two modes: Story and Competitive. In Story mode, you’ll work together to catch the killer. In Competitive mode, you’ll get secret objectives as you play through. Much like a bluffing card game, you’ll need to trick your friends to evade blame and make your hidden agenda come true.
Playing alone or with friends will create a different story each and every time you play. Because of this, you will be able to play multiple times with a new story “branch.”
Hidden Agenda will launch October 24. Be sure to download the free companion app on your mobile devices, whether that be your mobile phone, or even tablet.
