Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

  • Field Commander (PSP)

  • We will update this throughout the day when new announcements become available. Read more for details...

Field Commander (PSP)

"We are looking forward to launching Field Commander, as we were keen to develop a turn-based strategy game for the PSP system," said Laura Naviaux, senior brand manager, Sony Online Entertainment. "This highly anticipated game will not only fill a gap in the current games available for the PSP system, it will lead the way in its genre with its variety of multiplayer and online options, including a robust website with leader boards, map sharing and tons of features."

Players will take the role of a field commander working for an independent organization, ATLAS, established by the Allied Nations, to defend the world against an evil terrorist organization known as "Shadow Nation," which is bent on inciting wars, dealing illicit arms and global domination.

With an arsenal of 15 army divisions and 11 commanding officers from which to choose, players can command the land, skies and sea. In addition, players can orchestrate an offensive attack through 30 unique missions, each one coming alive in beautiful 3D environments with highly detailed terrain and dynamic visual effects. Alternately, players can compete against each other utilizing the PSP system's wireless networking capabilities.

Key Features

  • Turn-based strategy: Take to the field and guide your division to victory by outsmarting, outmaneuvering and outgunning your opponents.
  • Deep single-player campaign: Delve into the game's engrossing story while combating enemies through more than 30 unique missions.
