About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

'Delta Force: Black Hawk Down' (PS2) Announced - Screens

by Judy on Jan. 20, 2005 @ 5:44 p.m. PST

Set in Somalia in 1993 and based upon and around the Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger campaigns, players will take on the role of an elite Delta Force Operative as they participate in a number of daring raids against the oppressive Somali warlords in and around Mogadishu. Developed by Climax in the UK, Delta Force – Black Hawk Down brings the intensity of Modern Warfare to your living room with a range of intense single player and multiplayer missions.

Using the original PC version as a basis, British based developer Rebellion is redesigning the game specifically for the PlayStation 2. As well as a redesigned single player mode, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down will also have several brand new multiplayer features, including 32 player games online.

Totally redesigned for the PS2 utilizing the groundbreaking Azura engine, Delta Force – Black Hawk Down recreates the intense atmosphere of a war-torn country. From tours of duty in the vast Somali countryside, where snipers could lurk on top of any hill - to the maze like streets of Mogadishu, where militia and civilians blend seamlessly. To ensure accuracy, NovaLogic spent months researching the history of the conflict, and worked extensively with three former Special Forces Operatives, including two who served in Somalia in 1993.

Set in Somalia in 1993, Delta Force – Black Hawk Down is based upon and around the Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger campaigns immortalized in the book and movie of the same name. The game follows members of the elite Delta Force, US Army Rangers and 10th Mountain Division as they participate in a number of daring raids against the oppressive Somali warlords in and around Mogadishu.

NovaLogic has also teamed up with the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from Delta Force – Black Hawk Down will be donated to the foundation. The SOWF provides college scholarship grants, along with financial aid and educational counseling to the children of Special Operations personnel who were killed in an operational mission or training accident.
