Released only 10 days ago, SCi Games’ newest title, CONFLICT: DESERT STORM, has created a storm of its own and has taken the number one spot across all formats, according to recent Charttrack figures. The game, which was released simultaneously across Xbox, Sony Playstation 2 and PC on 13th September, is now the best selling computer and video game in the UK.
CONFLICT: DESERT STORM, is based on the 1991 Gulf War and is a 3rd person squad based action game, where the player takes control of an elite SAS or Delta Force Unit, ordered behind enemy lines to infiltrate enemy territory and neutralize key targets. The success of the game marks the second time in 12 months that SCi Games have achieved a #1 position in the gaming charts, following on from the success of THE ITALIAN JOB on PSOne last year.
CEO, Jane Cavanagh said, "We are incredibly pleased with the success of CONFLICT: DESERT STORM. Retailers have supported this product tremendously across all formats and we are confident that the game will continue to be one of the most popular titles released this year."
Marketing Manager, Justyna Cielecki added "After three years of development, this is a testament to all the effort and enthusiasm that has gone into the game and we see this as setting a precedent for our upcoming titles under the CONFLICT brand".
