Roast Pork or Rabbit Pie?

JoWooD Productions announces the latest addition to every PC gamers diet.. The vicious battle between the Pigs and the Rabbits is about to commence. S.W.I.N.E (Strategic Warfare In Nifty Environment), the latest real time strategy PC Game from JoWooD Productions is due for UK release in March 2002 and will invite gamers to explore their animal instincts.

CarrotLand is under siege by the Pig National Army and the future for the happy-go -lucky peace loving Rabbits looks bleak. Their only hope is to launch a skilful, guerrilla-style counter attack using a light, mobile shock force comprised of their remaining units.

Players must take command of either the rabbit or pigs' army and will have to prove themselves in a series of widely varied missions. In contrast to the "mass slaughter" typical of the genre, S.W.I.N.E requires players to command a manageable number of units that can also be enhanced during the course of the game.

The advanced 3D engine in S.W.I.N.E permits a 360º view, and continuous zooming for full vision of the battle field. All vehicles are animated and feature distinct movement and combat attributes with realistic detail and authentic sounds. Continuously changing weather, a variety of landscapes, and a choice of day and night missions further increase the level of realism. Humerous commentary from the clashing rabbits and pigs serves to lighten up the tense battle atmosphere.

S.W.I.N.E. is an exquisitely detailed execution of a Real Time Tactical Strategy game. Pay attention though, even dedicated strategy fans should take care not to underestimate the rabbits' beet barrage.

Managing Director of JoWooD Productions UK Ltd, Vip Patel said: "S.W.I.N.E is a breath of fresh air in the real time strategy genre. It is great fun to play and the next in a long line of first rate titles from JoWooD in 2002."

S.W.I.N.E. Features

12 missions for each race plus additional multiplayer maps with a
variety of playing modes for hours of entertaining gameplay

15 different combat and service units for each race, with their own unique roles and attributes

Units gain experience and can be upgraded by the player continuously for progressive gameplay

SWINE has a RRP of £29.99 and will be available from 8th March 2002.
