SGD '07: Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow

Looks like that accidental GameStop leak was correct -- there is a new Syphon Filter, and as you can see in these new screens, they look incredible. Logan's Shadow, which is currently planned for a fall release, has players returning to their role as Gabe Logan. In an all new story written by Greg Rucka (author of the Queen and Country series of novels and graphic novels), players must stop a criminal extremist group from using a dangerous new technology. The story will take players from the depths of the Indian Ocean to the deserts of the Middle East. In a surprising twist to fans of the franchise, Gabe must face the possibility that his long time partner, Lian Xing, is a double agent.

New gameplay mechanics include a Gears of War-esque "blind-fire", an advanced melee system that allows Gabe to use enemies as human shields, and 360 degree underwater combat. "Interactive moments" akin to those of God of War and Resident Evil 4 will also add a dash of cinematic thrill.

Logan's Shadow has a lot of impressive technology behind it. Aside from the visuals, it's also one of the few PSP titles (if not the first) to utilize the Havok physics engine made famous by games such as Half-Life 2. With such impressive production design, it may be Syphon Filter that becomes PSP's big "killer app," not God of War. Check out the images below, and then a video after the cut.
