MWSF: Aspyr Announces Black Hawk Down
7:52 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aspyr today announced its second new game, Black Hawk Down, in as many days at Macworld Expo San Francisco. The title is being developed by Aspyr's internal development team and is currently at the Alpha stage of development. During our conversation with Aspyr's Glenda Adams yesterday, she said the game should be completed and released by May.

In late 1993, the United States launched dual military operations in Mogadishu Somalia. Delta Force Operatives and Army Rangers were sent in to capture Somali warlords and restore order. As a Delta Force operative you participate in a number of daring and intense raids against the oppressive Somali warlords in and around Mogadishu.

Here's some more key features of the game:

• Insertion by MH-6 helicopter transports, Black Hawks and ground based transports. An AI system that drives friendly teams and enemies to carry out strategic, lethal combat maneuvers.

• Guard fallen squad members until CSAR (Combat Search And Rescue) team arrives. In multiplayer, players can use hand signals to direct their squads, taunt opponents or celebrate victory.

• An arsenal of authentic weapons as used by US Special Forces during Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger. Nonstop, large-scale multiplayer action over LAN or via NovaWorld.

• Engage in Close Quarters Battle in a maze of city streets or snipe across the plain with Delta Force’s signature long-range engagements.

• Open fire from heavy weapons mounted in Black Hawk helicopters or on Military Vehicles. Gear up with an arsenal of authentically modeled weapons used in the streets of Mogadishu.

ͺ Fight through a variety of compelling missions, each with multiple objectives. Powered by a new game engine optimized to showcase the latest 3D graphics and processor technology.

• Developed with direction from Special Operations Forces advisors on realistic tactics, situations and details.

Stay tuned to IMG for two more announcements coming from Aspyr tomorrow.
