Set in Somalia in 1993 and based upon and around the Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger campaigns, players will take on the role of an elite Delta Force Operative as they participate in a number of daring raids against the oppressive Somali warlords in and around Mogadishu. Developed by Climax in the UK, Delta Force – Black Hawk Down brings the intensity of Modern Warfare to your living room with a range of intense single player and multiplayer missions.

The game shatters records in console gaming history by offering the largest multiplayer games ever with up to 50 players to battle over Xbox Live, or up to 32 players on PlayStation(R)2 via GameSpy. Set in Somalia in 1993, the game follows the events of Operation Restore Hope and the battle of Mogadishu, which gained widespread attention in the Black Hawk Down book and feature film.

"In making the game we had two goals; first and foremost we wanted to create a fun and innovative title, but we wanted to do it in a way that honors those who served. More than any other entertainment medium to date, Delta Force: Black Hawk Down tells the unabridged story of the heroes that fought in Somalia," stated Dave Pollack, NovaLogic's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "To ensure that the game was accurate we worked with a number of subject matter experts that fought on the ground during the campaign. The result is a game that is not only fun to play, but also tells an important story. The soldiers that fought in the battle of Mogadishu and took part in both Task Force Ranger and Operation Restore Hope campaigns got the job done."

"Delta Force: Black Hawk Down" follows members of the elite Delta Force, US Army Rangers and 10th Mountain Division as they participate in a number of daring raids against the oppressive Somali warlords in and around Mogadishu.

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down features include:

  • 16 single player missions
  • Biggest multiplayer games in console gaming history
  • Co-op and split screen gaming options · Insertion by MH-6 helicopter transports, Black Hawks and ground based transports.
  • Multiplayer "Delta Force - Black Hawk Down" offers eight game types, including Deathmatch, Search & Destroy, Capture the Flag and Team King of the Hill and allows players to compete as one of four different character classes.
  • Arsenal of authentic weapons as used by US Special Forces during Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger

NovaLogic has also teamed up once again with the Special Operations Warrior Foundation so that a portion of the proceeds from Delta Force: Black Hawk Down will be donated to the foundation. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides college scholarship grants, along with financial aid and educational counseling, to the children of Special Operations personnel who were killed in an operational mission or training accident.
