H&D2: Sabre Squadron Unveiled

Frans sends along the fact sheet for a Hidden & Dangerous 2 expansion that was included in the Gathering's E3 brochure, though the project itself was not being demonstrated at the show. Here's the deal on Hidden & Dangerous 2: Sabre Squadron, due this fall:
Hidden & Dangerous 2: Sabre Squadron
Developer: Illusion Softworks
Genre: First/third-person squad-based tactical shooter
Platform: PC
Ship date: Fall 2004

Formed in 1940 to cause havoc and mayhem behind enemy lines, the British Special Air Service soon became some of the most feared troops on the battlefield. Now you can join the ranks of the SAS and command a squad of these highly trained, lethal soldiers. Sneak past enemy lines, infiltrate heavily guarded bases and outposts, and utilize superior tactics to eliminate the opposition.

Hidden & Dangerous 2: Sabre Squadron is an expansion module to Hidden & Dangerous 2, which was released on PC in October of 2003.

* Play through nine new single-player missions.
* Three new multiplayer missions.
* New weapons including: the German Panzerschreck (bazooka), SAS flare gun, the French MAS MLE 36 (used by the Resistance), Parabellum with silencer, and the German G43 rifle.
* Improved AI - enemies and squad members will react realistically to different situations; they will run for cover, set up ambushes and do what they can to preserve their lives.

Have to agree with last comment - I picked up H&D 2 a few weeks ago, but am just now getting into it.

Very good game so far after the first campaign - tactical combat falls a little short of OFP, but overall very satisfying and complex game. Well worth your time.

This is old-school PC gaming, the kind that's become very rare in this age of the "consolized" port.
