Global Terror strikes North American retailers

2K Games ships latest installment in Conflict series for Xbox, PlayStation 2, and PC sets the squad-based action in the present day.

2K Games' latest installment in the Conflict series is now storming retailers nationwide. Where previous Conflict games dropped players into the thick of battle in Desert Storm and Vietnam, Conflict: Global Terror brings the series into the present day with a squad-based, tactical counterterrorism shooter. The gameplay engine has been rewritten with new rag-doll physics, a refined order system, and for the first time in the series, cooperative online play.

Storyline-wise, Global Terror takes players to real-world hot spots in the fight against a fictional terrorist group of Nazis known as March 33. Joining the heroes of the original Conflict: Desert Storm (Bradley, Jones, Connors, and Foley) and bringing a woman's touch to the series for the first time is Sherman, a sniper.

Conflict: Global Terror is rated M for Mature with a retail price of $39.99 on the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox, and $29.99 on the PC. Check back soon for GameSpot's full review.
