“This collaboration of a New York Times best-selling author, a feature film production company and a very talented development house is an example of Atari’s commitment to pushing the creative envelope by encouraging talent from all aspects of the entertainment industry to connect with consumers in an exciting new way,” said Wim Stocks, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Atari. “The creative influence of these industry outsiders has raised the bar for what can be achieved in interactive entertainment and Act of War: Direct Action™ is the new benchmark.”
Act of War: Direct Action™ is a graphically stunning and frighteningly plausible tale of suspense, international intrigue and geopolitical military conflict. Through a techno-thriller story constructed by military expert and author Dale Brown, this real-time strategy experience puts players squarely in control of counterterrorist forces to defend cities of the world. As commander of a newly formed anti-terror military unit known as the Talon Task Force, players will need to recruit combat units, develop technologies, manage finite resources, and deploy their forces against a cunning and ruthless terror network. The single player Act of War: Direct Action™ demo is taken from the game’s sixth mission set in Egypt entitled ‘Falling Hawk’.
Developed by Eugen Systems with a storyline and game universe created in cooperation with Dale Brown, New York Times best-selling author and expert on US military, global conflict and future military technology, Act of War: Direct Action™ is scheduled to release on March 15, 2005 for the personal computer at a suggested retail price $49.99.
