Vivendi Universal Games today announced that Cold Winter, a first-person shooter for the PlayStation 2, is now available in retail stores. The game was developed by British publisher Swordfish Studios, which previously worked on World Championship Rugby.

Cold Winter lets gamers play as Andrew Sterling, an ex-MI6 British superspy. The story was penned by Warren Ellis and follows Sterling across the globe in a tale of espionage and double-crosses. The game boasts lifelike physics and location-specific damage with rag-doll death animations.

Using the PS2's broadband capabilities, up to eight gamers can play six different multiplayer modes. Alternately, up to four players can play on one PS2 with a split-screen. The multiplayer mode has 30 different player skins, 12 maps, and game customization features.

Cold Winter is rated M for Mature and retails for $49.99. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
