E3 2002: Delta Force: Black Hawk Down preshow report

Novalogic is currently working a new multiplatform Delta Force game. New screenshots inside.


NovaLogic has announced that it's working on a new Delta Force game based on Black Hawk Down for the PlayStation 2, the Xbox, and the PC. The game is set in 1993 during Operation Restore Hope, in which Delta Force and US Army Rangers participated in a number of raids against Somali warlords. The game will use Novalogic's latest graphics engine to provide the greatest level of detail possible.

"In Operation Restore Hope the men of Task Force Ranger fought a fierce battle in what is now recognized as the war on terrorism," said Lee Milligan, president of NovaLogic. "In Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, gamers will step into the shoes of US Special Operations forces tackling some of their most dangerous missions."

In the PC version of the game, you'll be able to control a number of ground and aerial vehicles, including humvees and attack choppers, and even use mounted weapons. Firefights will occur in close quarters, but some will be designed to take place at long range to model Delta Force's signature long-range engagements. The weapons in the game are based on the same weapons used in Operation Restore Hope.

The Xbox version of the game will support online play through the Xbox Live service.

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down is scheduled to ship in Q4 2002 for the PC. The PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game will follow in 2003.
