Announced in 2007, Left Behind II: Tribulation Forces includes well over 100 features, enhancements, upgraded graphics, and it resolves numerous issues that made its predecessor controversial.

This is the full retail version of Tribulation Forces which includes all of the missions from the original Eternal Forces game PLUS tons of new content. You do not need to purchase the upgrade CD, but please update the game after installing by downloading the latest update from the Internet for free. This is the second chapter in the Left Behind PC Game series with massive improvements and new maps and missions. The game includes 45 single player missions including tutorials and the all new skirmish mode allowing you to play against the computer by yourself or with a friend online. There are 39 skirmish/multiplayer maps to choose from, including 3 multiplayer modes of play.

Left Behind II: Tribulation Forces is a real-time strategy game based on the best-selling Left Behind book series, created by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Join the ultimate fight of Good versus Evil, commanding Tribulation Forces, the Global Community Peacekeepers the all new American Militia!

Public Relations Director, Tammy La Barbera, says, “The original game ‘Eternal Forces’ became one of the most highly publicized games of 2006, as politically motivated groups launched an all-out war against the game, by making false claims that the game included conversion to Christianity as a requirement or gave points for killing Muslims. The media frenzy resulted in feature stories on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX NEWS, MSNBC, CNN, BBC, and numerous other worldwide networks and in print in the San Jose Chronicle, Newsweek, Wired and many others. After more than two years and a third-party investigation, it was determined that the Tides Center, a taxpayer supported non-profit, and others, launched and paid for a campaign to smear the game and Company, which may have resulted in a $200 million loss in shareholder value as the stock plummeted as a result of their misinformation campaign. Left Behind Games is a publicly traded company.”

This new second chapter in the Left Behind PC Game series includes significant new features, improvements, maps and missions. The game includes 45 single player missions including tutorials and an all-new skirmish mode allowing players to play against the computer by themselves or with up to 7 friends online. There are 39 skirmish battle multiplayer maps and 3 different multiplayer modes of play.

CEO Troy Lyndon says, “From purely a playability point of view, Tribulation Forces is well-balanced and competes directly with other modern-day real-time strategy games.” Lyndon continues, “This new game includes a new and improved version of the original as its foundation, but includes the polish gamers have requested and the all-new skirmish feature rocks!”

Amidst the original controversy, organizations including Focus on the Family and the majority of church groups worldwide support Left Behind Games. Dallas Anderson of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association said, “The genius of these games is that they provide positive moral input to a generation that would otherwise not hear it!”

Although Left Behind: Tribulation Forces has been available online and in participating Christian stores, its mainstream debut is expected to bring it into major retailers this fall leading up until Christmas.

Gamer Eric B. of Austin, MN, says, “I play Age of Empires. But being that I’m a fan of the Left Behind books, I am now a big fan of the Left Behind PC games. When I’m done playing the Left Behind game I feel all jazzed up and don’t feel emotionally wiped out like I feel after playing other video games. I love the style of the game and everything about it!”
