War Rock, developed by Dream Execution, is an online FPS game in the style of EA's Battlefield 2, allowing you to experience online battlefields on a large scale, supporing vechicles for land, sea and air.

When gamers pre-order War Rock at one of the participating retailers, in addition to securing a copy of the game the day it launches in stores, they will be provided with a special code that can be applied to existing War Rock beta accounts. The code will give players an exclusive 8th Slot Weapon (these exclusive weapons vary by retailer and include a Gatling gun, M60 and more).

Players will also receive exclusive in-game items including red smoke grenades, upgraded medical kits, 100,000 bonus Dinar, and the reservation of an in-game name for the official commercial launch of War Rock. The final retail copy of the game will also include a flip-style map book and collectible military-style War Rock dog tags.

“The pre-order campaign for War Rock has just started we are already seeing great results,” said K2 Network’s Matt Norton, producer of War Rock. “The game is one of the top downloads on Fileplanet and CNET. That coupled with great early pre-order results has us very excited for the official launch of the game. ”

“The unique gameplay elements and exclusive in-game features are clearly resonating well with gamers, as evidenced by the great reception we are seeing to the pre-sell campaign at the participating retailers”, said Elephant Entertainment’s President/CEO, Wim Stocks. “All signs are pointing to a highly anticipated launch by the gaming community, and we are thrilled to be offering this great and new proposition for all gamers and FPS fans…!”

For players new to the FPS world, this modern tactical shooter’s action-packed gameplay has been structured with an easy learning curve. For the expert FPS fans, variety of game-play - from small squad level close quarters combat to medium-sized urban conflicts to huge multi-squad and vehicle operations - provides a deep gameplay experience.
