Ships Ahoy - Shadow Ops: Red Mercury

AMD Teams Up With Atari To Deliver 64-Bit Firepower is the press release announcing the availability of the PC edition of Shadow Ops: Red Mercury, though there's minimal focus on the game, as the announcement primarily further touts the advantages to be seen in the 64-bit version of Zombie's first-person shooter:
After purchasing "Shadow Ops: Red Mercury," gamers can immediately take advantage of the game by installing a public trial version of Microsoft(r) Windows(r) XP Pro x64 Edition on an AMD64 platform and installing relevant 64-bit drivers. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/evaluation/upgrade.mspx

Ignoring the fact the game isn't exactly great (I'm being generous), it is interesting in that this is the first time I can remember a game offering features you need a beta OS to take advantage of (maybe that's just because MS is taking it's own sweet time).

I'm just impressed someone finally released a 64-bit game. Hopefully this will motivate a few other software companies (like say Ubisoft with Farcry and Epic with UT2004) to release patches to support Win XP x64 (assuming a 64-bit version offers improvements, which both developers have said is the case with their respective games).

Eh, I can dream.
