High-Speed, Aerial Combat comes to the Xbox and PC
New York – August 9, 2004 – Gathering, a publishing division of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), announced today that it will release Wings of War this fall for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and PC. Developed by Silver Wish Games, a division of Illusion Softworks, the creators of the smash hit Mafia , Wings of War brings the high-speed action of an arcade shooter to history's ultimate arena of aerial combat, World War I.
Wings of War puts gamers in the cockpit of over 25 Allied and German aircraft in massive air battles and bombing runs across the vast landscape of war torn Europe . Players will take on hordes of enemy aircraft in detailed planes or take control of anti-aircraft guns mounted on trains, zeppelins, boats and more. Wings of War features more than 70 stages of gameplay across 13 unique levels featuring a vast array of missions, including action-packed military assignments as well as additional, "non-regulation" quests.
Throughout Wings of War , players will have the opportunity to take side missions and accept duels and challenges from jealous rivals in order to gain points and prestige. By completing missions, side quests, various challenges and secret objectives within the game, new options become available that will allow players to upgrade their planes with new guns, rockets, engine enhancements, armor, and color schemes.
In addition to the extensive singe player mode, the PC version of the game will include both online and LAN-based multiplayer. Featuring the ability to dogfight in many different modes, the online component will be every bit as action-packed as the single player experience for PC gamers.
