Sierra Entertainment seems intent on carpet-bombing Cold War enthusiasts with announcements for its upcoming alternate-history action strategy game World in Conflict. In early June, the publisher unveiled a preorder package for the PC version that would include a History Channel DVD and special multiplayer incentives. Later that month, details arrived on the PC version's collector's edition, which offers gamers yet another History Channel DVD, a behind-the-scenes making-of video, and a piece of cement lifted straight from the Berlin Wall's ruins.
Today Sierra sends word that North American gamers will be able check out all the nifty swag, and play the game of course, come September 18 on the PC. It has not yet been rated or priced. An Xbox 360 release date was not given, though Sierra did note last month that the two versions would be available around the same time.
Developed by Massive Entertainment, World in Conflict tosses players into the what-if scenario of a Cold War gone hot. The game supports DX10 technology, and players will have the chance to level 3D battlefields using a mixture of real-time strategy tactics and first-person shooter action.
