Taking on the role of Agent Cate Archer, a beautiful but deadly female operative working for an international anti-terrorist organization called UNITY, players are challenged to complete intense assignments in foreign locations throughout the world. Agent Archer must use her charm and espionage training to find a way to stop the outlaw megalomaniacs of the H.A.R.M. terrorist group.

In addition to looks that kill, this leading lady packs over 30 unique weapons and gadgets including a missile-launching briefcase, robotic pheromone poodles, exploding lipstick, lock-pick barrettes and lethal acid perfume.
A Model Citizen
Fox Interactive has taken an innovative approach to No One Lives Forever by casting a real-life face as its muse for the game. Fox utilised its Feature Film casting department and conducted a worldwide casting search for the perfect Agent Archer. Beautiful women from around the world were interviewed before the piercing blue-eyed Elite model, Mitzi Martin, was selected to be the muse for the sexy and mysterious Agent Cate Archer. Martin has appeared in commercials for L’Oreal, Maybelline and Lubriderm and has worked with the industry’s top photographers, including Herb Ritts, Patrick DeMarchellier and Mathew Rolston.
Groovy Tunes Baby!
No One Lives Forever is a two-disc product that includes the game and an accompanying original music disc entitled, “In the Lounge.” The 60’s inspired “In the Lounge” music tracks feature artists from the Fox Interactive and Indiespace.com Music Search plus eight new and original spy-inspired tracks including the game’s theme song, “The Operative.”
Hundreds of unsigned bands from around the world submitted music for the chance to be introduced to a mainstream gaming audience. Up and coming musical acts Red Delicious and Archie Thompson were chosen to headline the highly anticipated soundtrack. The theme song as well as the eight new tracks were created by Los Angeles-based studio musicians and personally selected by the game’s Producer, Chris Miller.
No One Lives Forever is developed by Seattle-based Monolith Productions. The game will be available at retail from December 8th at an estimated retail price of £29.99.
