by Rainier on Sept. 15, 2005 @ 10:34 a.m. PDT

Cold War follows the story of Matt Carter, a freelance journalist, who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R. Twelve hours after arriving in Moscow for a routine story, Carter has been stripped of all his possessions, beaten unconscious and thrown into the KGB's political prison. Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, he must now evade or overcome elite Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy before he is sent to a Siberian prison camp or killed.

“With its 1980’s Soviet backdrop and intriguing stealth premise that puts gamers in the middle of an international conspiracy,” commented Product Manager Byron Gaum. “We expect Cold War to be well received by hungry stealth and action gamers everywhere.”
