its scheduled for next week, the 26th March isnt that the date Global Ops should hit the shevles?). For the people who have been hiding under a rock the past few months, New World Order is a eagerly awaited First Person Shooter in the pure Counterstrike style ... I have been following the NWO forum for a few weeks and tensions were growing and the atmosphere grimmer by the day, but alas next week our suffering will come to an end. There isnt much known about it but from what we have seen, its looking mighty good! We'll see you all on Tuesday, on the battlefield!
