Activision followed up the VGA debut trailer of True Crime for the Xbox 360 and PS3 with a press release detailing some of the game's functionality. The biggest difference between this reboot of True Crime and the first two games is that it's no longer going the route of comedic-action with goofy but mature themes. This latest redo is a serious take on the Hong Kong criminal organization and Activision made that clear in the trailer and the press release.

Stephen van der Mescht, Executive Producer at United Front Games commented in the press release, saying…
“We’re excited about the opportunity to deliver a complete reboot of the True Crime experience”... “As our Spike TV VGA reveal trailer shows, we are dedicated to creating both an exceptional open-world gameplay experience through our combat, free-running, shooting and driving mechanics, as well as a rich story with memorable recurring characters. We want players to feel like an undercover cop experiencing the moral dilemmas and life and death situations of the HK underworld.”

Just like GTA or the previous True Crime games before it, the new-gen take on the True Crime will still include various side-quests, characters to interact with and sandbox style exploration.

The theme of the game is set to incorporate a more action-thriller experience, as seen in some of the popular Hong Kong films set in modern times. Did I happen to mention that the lead protagonist is Asian, again? Yeah, that’s a huge plus given that the only other lead Asian hero in an action game was Chow Yun Fat’s Inspector Tequila from the pseudo-sequel to Hard Boiled, Stranglehold.

True Crime is due out for the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 in fall 2010. For more info be sure to visit the Official Website.
