Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. announced today that its Gotham Games subsidiary has shipped Conflict: Desert Storm for the PlayStation2, the Microsoft Xbox and the PC. Licensed from SCi (SEG.L) and developed by UK based Pivotal Games, Conflict: Desert Storm is now available at stores in North America. This is the first product release from Gotham Games, a publishing label established by Take-Two earlier this year.

Conflict: Desert Storm lets players lead one of the best known and most feared special operations forces in the world: the U.S. Delta Force or the elite British SAS. The missions are as unpredictable as they are dangerous: from vital scud-hunting missions deep within enemy territory to highly secretive rescue and assassination operations in Baghdad. As the first line of defense, the player's objective is clear: Protect Freedom.

"Conflict: Desert Storm is the most action-packed and realistic military action shooter available this year," said Jamie Leece, president, Gotham Games. "The game's unprecedented AI governs both enemy and squad behavior and ballistics to accurately simulate the rigors of combat. Once you've successfully played this game, you're ready to enlist!"

To present the most realistic depiction of the intense ground war in Iraq, the developers recruited as technical consultant, Cameron Spence, a former high-ranking SAS officer who served in Operation Desert Storm.

Conflict: Desert Storm was released in the UK on September 13th and has created a storm of its own by taking the number one spot across all platforms, according to the recent ELSPA reports compiled by Chart-Track.

"Our Gotham Games label was launched to focus exclusively on publishing outstanding content that is accessible to a wide range of consumers," said Kelly Sumner, Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two Interactive Software. "With its broad appeal, exciting gameplay and relevance to world events, Conflict: Desert Storm is an ideal title for the debut of our Gotham Games label."
