Posted on Mar 1, 2016 | Press Releases, Articles & Reviews

March 1, 2016 (Walnut Creek, CA) – Maximum Games is excited to announce that Alekhine’s Gun, the spiritual successor to the Death to Spies series and the Bay Area video game publisher’s first in-house game, is available today. The Cold War stealth game can now be purchased on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One in North America. The digital PC version launches globally on STEAM™ on March 11, 2016. In Europe and Latin America, the game will release in physical form on console (both territories) and PC (Europe only) later this month.

Alekhine’s Gun puts players in the shoes of WWII ex-KGB assassin, Agent Alekhine, who is tasked with eliminating conspirators during the 1960s Cold War era. Teamed up with the CIA, players will traverse eleven open levels set in both military and civilian locations in the U.S., Europe, and Cuba. With a range of weapons and disguises, non-linear levels, and multiple routes to success, Alekhine’s Gun gives players the freedom to explore and optimize their strategy within an intriguing historical context.

“Developing this game had its challenges,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games. “It was important to us to give fans of the Death to Spies franchise the same classic stealth gameplay they love, while modernizing the game to appeal to fans of the broader stealth genre.” She adds, “In the end, we are extremely pleased with the outcome and are beyond thrilled to finally get the game in players’ hands!”

Alekhine’s Gun is available today on PS4™ system and Xbox One in North America. The game will follow on the same consoles in Europe and Latin America, and globally on STEAM™ and all other leading PC digital download retailers later this month.
