Developed by Ubi Soft's Red Storm Entertainment, the North Carolina based studio known for their popular Tom Clancy games, the PC version will feature action-oriented gameplay appealing to a wide audience. The technology behind the new game combines the physics and graphic capabilities of TomClancy's Ghost Recon, the 2001 Game of the Year*, and the familiar gameplay style of the best-selling Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six franchise.
The Sum Of All Fears games will be based on events from both Tom Clancy's novel and Paramount Pictures' movie, immersing players in the middle of a high-stakes adventure as members of an FBI elite hostage rescue team reassigned to track down the conspirators of a major plot against the United States. Players can choose to play as part of a three-player team or up to 36 players can join the multiplayer action on the ubi.com gaming portal as well as the internet. The game takes place in a number of modern day locations, including West Virginia, the Middle East, and South Africa, and allows players to follow the story of The Sum Of All Fears via rendered cinematics depicting vital plot points from the novel and movie.
