Infogrames Unfurls an Explosive Arsenal of Arcade Action With Operation Blockade; Military Shooter Offers Waves of Frenetic Firepower
``By enabling players to jump quickly into the action without needing to become a tactical genius, we've availed our games to a much wider mainstream audience,'' said Dennis Davidson, marketing manager of Infogrames' Minneapolis label. ``By maintaining military authenticity, we simultaneously broaden that reach to the dedicated player as well.''
After the Great War, tensions rise and an assault on your homeland ensues. The enemy has swept ashore and is bent on conquering your tiny nation. You parachute onto a tiny island with the mission of interdicting passing enemy supply ships and troop transports, preventing the invading force from subjugating your country.
Featuring a variety of vintage weaponry from the era, in Operation Blockade you earn more advanced weaponry as you progress through the game. This is critical as time continues towards the latter half of the decade, a military build-up and the next battle storm. Facing you are air, land and sea forces that rival those of any nation. Carriers and their deadly assortment of fighter-attack planes and bombers; paratroopers, PT boats, submarines and landing craft all set out to eradicate your small blocking force.
Special missions appear throughout the game and a cooperative multiplayer mode enhances your ability to engage troops on multiple fronts.
Developed by Screaming Games, Operation Blockade for PC is due this spring.
