Delta Force: Black Hawk Down preshow report
offers the announcement that
"Novalogic is currently working a new multiplatform Delta Force game."
"(S)et in 1993 during Operation Restore Hope, in which Delta Force and US
Army Rangers participated in a number of raids against Somali warlords,"
the game is described as "based on Black Hawk Down
we'll assume means the movie). The game is expected to ship for the PC late this
year, and for the Xbox and PS2 in 2003. The Xbox version will feature online
support, though from the following quote it can be inferred that the PC version
will offer more in the way of features than its counterparts:
In the PC
version of the game, you'll be able to control a number of ground and aerial
vehicles, including humvees and attack choppers, and even use mounted weapons.
Firefights will occur in close quarters, but some will be designed to take place
at long range to model Delta Force's signature long-range engagements. The
weapons in the game are based on the same weapons used in Operation Restore
: NovaLogic has now issued a press release
to formally announce Delta Force - Black Hawk Down, and a teaser site
is also online.
