‘No military. No special forces.’ Just not Jack Bauer…

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe [SCEE] is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of Syphon Filter
TM: Dark Mirror developed exclusively for PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable).

An increasingly dangerous world filled with terrorist threats needs a safety measure – and that safety measure is Gabe Logan. National security is so sensitive he’s working for a black ops US agency that doesn’t officially exist, and having being listed M.I.A after his previous mission, Gabe returns to put his life on the line to save the world.

Take control of this deadly Precision Strike Operative as he is inserted into the field to uncover the latest threat to global security – a project known only as Dark Mirror. Confronting a woman from his past who reveals the shocking truth about Red Section, a para-military group who have stolen Dark Mirror, Gabe Logan knows he’s the only man for the job. Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror is the most exciting episode yet in the Syphon Filter franchise – with an all-new story, new weapons and Gabe Logan firmly in control.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror is packed with explosive real-world action adventures. From Finland to Bosnia, Alaska to Peru, Gabe’s objective is to recover the elusive Project Dark Mirror – which sees him embroiled within the darkness of the world’s Secret Services. And where the Russian Mafia, MI6 and Washington are involved, Gabe can’t rely on conventional means…Armed with a host of weapons including a new rifle which uses the latest darts technology and a range of vision enhancement goggles, Gabe must infiltrate enemy territory.

An immersive single-player adventure that also delivers an evolving online multiplayer experience, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror features melee attacks, target lock, precision aiming, vision enhancements, improved artificial intelligence (AI), and high-tech weaponry, as well as five unique online maps using both Ad Hoc and Infrastructure connectivity, and four types of gameplay modes in multiplayer.
