by Rainier on Aug. 29, 2002 @ 7:08 p.m. PDT

Almost time to take down Saddam! Gotham Games is officially announcing a SEPTEMBER 30TH street date for 'Conflict: Desert Storm', the squad-based, third-person shooter that drops you in the middle of the '91 Gulf War to lead a team of elite commandos from either the U.S. Delta Force or British SAS. Coming to the PS2, Xbox and PC, Conflict: Desert Storm presents the next level in tactical military gaming by providing the gamer seamless control of a squad of lethal killing machines as they utilize all of their training and weaponry to eradicate key Iraqi targets. Check the 10, rather fuzzy looking, screens ...

Presenting the next step in tactical military gaming, Conflict: Desert Storm is based on the events of the 1991 Gulf War as players control an elite U.S. Delta Force or British Special Air Service (SAS) unit that has been ordered behind enemy lines. Gamers fight through 15 intense missions -- utilizing advanced training and stealth techniques and a vast array of weaponry -- in order to destroy key Iraqi targets and ultimately put an end to Saddam’s reign of terror.

"With Conflict: Desert Storm, gamers will experience the awesome power of a squad of elite commandos as they easily control each member of their four-man team in the battle against Saddam,” said Jamie Leece, President of Gotham games. “The game immerses players in an ultra-realistic warfare environment, placing them in situations where they must employ true military tactics in order to complete the missions.”

In order to present the most realistic depiction of the intense ground war in Iraq, Gotham Games recruited Cameron Spence, a former high-ranking SAS officer who served in Desert Storm, as a technical consultant. The result is the most authentic experience in modern combat gaming with stunningly rendered desert and urban environments and complete control of a four-man squad of elite combatants.

Covert missions take you through hostile environments where only your expertise in stealth, tactics and firepower will ensure the success and safety of your men. Your 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 itself. As the first line of defense, your objective is clear: Protect Freedom.
