Threat Level Reaches Gold for Act of War

Company: Atari
Product: Act of War: Direct Action

Atari says Act of War: Direct Action, a near-future, techno-thriller for PC, has gone gold and is on schedule for its March 15, 2005 ship date. Act of War: Direct Action features a story created and written by New York Times best-selling author Dale Brown, along with nearly an hour of original, live-action feature film footage.

?This collaboration of a New York Times best-selling author, a feature film production company, and a very talented development house is an example of Atari?s commitment to pushing the creative envelope by encouraging talent from all aspects of the entertainment industry to connect with consumers in an exciting new way,? said Wim Stocks, executive vice president of sales and marketing for Atari. ?The creative influence of these industry outsiders has raised the bar for what can be achieved in interactive entertainment and Act of War: Direct Action is the new benchmark.?

Act of War: Direct Action is a graphically stunning and frighteningly plausible tale of suspense, international intrigue, and geopolitical military conflict. Through a techno-thriller story, this real-time strategy experience puts players squarely in control of counter-terrorist forces to defend cities of the world. As commander of a newly formed anti-terror military unit known as the Talon Task Force, players will need to recruit combat units, develop technologies, manage finite resources, and deploy their forces against a cunning and ruthless terror network. The single player Act of War: Direct Action demo is taken from the game?s sixth mission set in Egypt entitled ?Falling Hawk.?

Developed by Eugen Systems, Act of War: Direct Action costs $49.99.
