NovaLogic has announced that Delta Force: Task Force Dagger, its upcoming stand-alone tactical action game mission pack, will feature a storyline based on actual missions from Operation Enduring Freedom. Players will assume the role of one of 10 different Special Forces soldiers, and they will take part in more than 25 missions set in Afghanistan.
Task Force Dagger will include characters based on a variety of Special Forces groups from around the world, including the 2/75th RANGER, SEAL Team 6, CIA Spec Ops, the UK SAS 22 Regiment, SFOD-SF Viper Team (Green Berets), Australian SASR, Canadian JTF-2, Marine Force Recon, USAF CSAR (Air Force Pararescue), and the SFOD-DELTA. Missions will take place deep in enemy territory in locations such as Kandahar, Mazar-i-Sharif, and Tora Bora. Objectives will include raiding rebel headquarters, taking control of an airport, ambushing enemy convoys, and destroying SAM and Scud missile sites. In addition, the expansion will feature more than 30 weapons, including 17 new guns.
Delta Force: Task Force Dagger is based on the Delta Force: Land Warrior game engine, and it does not require the original game in order to run. The stand-alone mission pack is scheduled for release in May. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the Delta Force series.
