Gamecock has announced Velvet Assassin, a stealth action title inspired by real life WWII British secret agent Violette Szabo, due for release this fall for the Xbox 360 and PC from Hamburg, Germany based developer Replay. Gamecock says the game will put players in the role of Violette Summer to go behind the enemy lines to "defeat the German war machine one stealth mission at a time." The game promises "lush, surreal visuals and a ground-breaking stealth combat system." In August of 2007, Replay originally announced the game as Sabotage, when it first signed with Gamecock to publish the title. At the time, Replay said the game would play out "through Violet’s mind as she lay prostrate in a hospital bed towards the end of the war," and would feature a surreal air of "washed out backdrops" and "vivid combat sequences." Said Replay creative director Sascha Jungnickel, “This is a project we’ve been incredibly excited about from the start. Velvet Assassin is going to be an amazing experience both in its visual style and gameplay, it will be awesome to get it to such a massive audience.”
