The Agency was a spy-based persistent online FPS from Sony Online Entertainment. Players could choose from the two factions of The United Network of Intelligence and Tactical Experts (U.N.I.T.E) and The Paramilitary Global Operations Network (ParaGON). Featuring cooperative and competitive play, The Agency offered instant action and long-term strategy with espionage, intrigue, and FPS gameplay. The game also allowed players to recruit Operatives in the form of trading cards to support them in missions, create Networks to join forces with other players, and utilize the Black Market to purchase weapons, equipment, and more. The Agency was cancelled in March of 2011.
