by Thomas on Nov. 14, 2002 @ 8:55 p.m. PST | Filed under News

Jimbo from Termite Games has once again revealed more info about New World Order (that will be out in Europe tomorrow Friday). Here is a clip from the info:

First of all, the entire game has been upgraded in the sense that everything is a ton more stable and runs smoother - for multiplayer we have especially speeded up player rendering and animation, which in the Betas were in debug mode and slowed down the game seriously when more than 8 players were in the game.

There are five game-modes in NWO;

  • Team Deathmatch
  • Plant The Bomb
  • Hostage Rescue
  • Team Escape
  • Fallout

    We are going to continously maintain and upgrade NWO with new features and more fun! We have also already begun work on the expansion pack for NWO.
