THQ has announced the North American release of the Xbox version of Full Spectrum Warrior. Originally developed for the US Army by Pandemic Studios, Full Spectrum Warrior is a military squad-based tactical action game that has been reworked for consumer release and now boasts Xbox Live support.
"Full Spectrum Warrior is a milestone in electronic interactive entertainment. As it was developed as a training device for the US Army, it's the most realistic and authentic military game to date," said Jack Sorensen, executive vice president of worldwide studios at THQ. "Full Spectrum Warrior is one of the most visually impressive games ever launched. It delivers tactical and strategic squad combat not seen in today's popular military games and it carries the genre to a new level of reality and entertainment."
"Full Spectrum Warrior truly simulates the actions and reactions of a squad leader and his soldiers in hostile settings through simple and intuitive controls," added Josh Resnick, president of Pandemic Studios. "By taking advantage of Xbox Live, Full Spectrum Warrior allows players from around the world to simulate cooperative urban combat missions."
The Xbox version of Full Spectrum Warrior is now available for a suggested retail price of $49.99. A PC version of the game is also in development and is expected to ship to stores in September.
