by Rainier on March 15, 2004 @ 10:20 a.m. PST

Mercenaries will give gamers the opportunity to live out their action movie fantasies with its explosive combat and non-linear gameplay set in massive interactive environments. If you can see it -- you can steal it, use it or blow it up. Players can demonstrate their creativity in the hunt for enemy combatants using more than 30 real-world military weapons. Gamers will be able to assume the role of one of three different mercenaries and will have the opportunity to call in air strikes and pilot more than 20 authentic ground and air vehicles including helicopters, trucks and tanks. Players can attract attention from embedded journalists in the game as they work with (and against) sparring international factions to secure all 52 targets, represented by a deck of playing cards. Mercenaries will be able to purchase additional weapons and vehicles with the money earned from each capture.

Features :

  • Fifty-two action-packed missions featuring open-ended and explosive gameplay set in the future during a coup in North Korea.
  • The "deck of 52" represents a target for each of these modern-day combat inspired missions.
  • More than 20 authentic ground and air vehicles including helicopters, cars, artillery rocket launchers and tanks.
  • More than 30 weapons including rocket launchers, grenades and shotguns.
  • Players control how they interact within each environment with the ability to use anything within the game.
  • Play as one of three mercenaries including an American or Swedish male or a British female - each character with at least one unique advantage.
  • Choose your alliances between numerous feuding factions.
  • Realistic physics allows players to demolish buildings and watch the world around them react as it would in real life.
  • Authentic sound effects recorded at Skywalker Sound.
