Soldner: Secret Wars takes team based warfare to the next level with a battlefield spanning 18 million square miles featuring fully destructible terrain, you can join a team of mercenaries and engage in fierce firefights with up to 32 players.

Featuring fully destructible 3D environments, traditional multiplayer FPS players will find their tactics sorely tested in Soldner; buildings can be reduced to rubble by missile or cannon attack, a series of well-placed C4 charges, or even by having a tank dropped on it from helicopter. With the available Commander Kit, an elected squad leader can access an overhead view of the total map in Commander Mode, identify and designate enemy targets to his team, and a well placed volley of ordinance reduces the area and (targets) to kindling.

Developed by Wings Simulations, this team based tactical FPS pits up to 32 online mercenaries against each other on a virtual battlefield measuring over 18 million square miles (in scale), created using actual satellite topography. Players will have access to a lethal arsenal of over 60 personal weapons incorporating handguns, automatic rifles, sniper rifles and launchers, all based on current military technology. Teams will also have access to over 70 assault and transport vehicles, including helicopters, jets, trucks and tanks.

Soldner: Secret Wars' single player campaign challenges players to secure a variety of randomly generated objectives, from hostage extraction (where rescued members join your assault team) to vehicle/item theft and assassination missions. The multiplayer component includes standard modes like Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch, Conquest and Capture the Flag, and adds Hostage Rescue, Extraction, Capture the Vehicle, Bomb Run and Conquest mode. These modes can be fully customized to incorporate daytime/nighttime combat as well as weather effects (rain, snow, fog/cloud cover). Published for Windows(r) PC, Soldner: Secret Wars should arrive on store shelves by the end of this week at a suggested retail price of $39.99. The game is rated "T" (for Teen) by the ESRB.
