BAM! Entertainment today announced that military action title Dropship: United Peace Force for the PlayStation 2 is arriving at retail this week in North America. Dropship: United Peace Force, developed by Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe's Camden studio, entered the sales charts at #4 in the U.K. market during the very competitive holiday season. As part of the ongoing strategic relationship between BAM! Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Dropship: United Peace Force is the second of three European Sony titles for the PlayStation 2, which BAM! Entertainment is bringing to North America. In March, BAM! shipped WRC: World Rally Championship and in mid-June the company will ship WipEout Fusion to North American retail outlets; both titles were first..

"Dropship should definitely be on your radar this summer," said Alain Tascan, Vice President of Worldwide Product Development for BAM! Entertainment. "With its stunning photo-realistic environments, a variety of high-technology air and ground combat crafts and an innovative mission structure, Dropship provides a great action gaming experience that anyone who loves games will enjoy."

Dropship: United Peace Force is an explosive combat experience that takes gamers to the year 2050 where the United Nations and NATO have been replaced by the United Peacekeeping Force. Freshly recruited to the ranks, players must utilize a range of futuristic, high-tech ground and air combat vehicles to combat political forces that threaten world peace.

Dropship's unique gameplay is a new take on the action genre, where every tactical decision influences the success of the mission. With the aid of a co-pilot, players can fly, drive and storm their way through huge, photo-realistic combat zones, launching assaults on enemy targets while political intrigue plays itself out in a frighteningly realistic plot.

If you're seeking a face-paced action shooter, Dropship is perfect for you." Gamespot.com writes "Dropship: United Peace Force offers a sense of being "right there"..."enormously challenging".
