Description

Global Operations (GOPS) is a first person shooter game that puts you in some of today's hotspots, like Chechnya, Sri Lanka and the South China seas.

You play a member of an elite military force and must accomplish team-specific missions, like "Rescue the Hostage" and "Disarm the Bomb".

You have an arsenal of real-life weapons, such as machine guns, shotguns, snipers, and more, as well as accessories, such as silencers, laser sights, and night vision goggles.

You can play as one of seven different roles; Recon (find the enemy), Commando (lead your team), Medic (heal your team), Heavy Gunner (lay covering fire), Demo (explosives expert), Sniper (long-range kills) and Intel (multiplayer only; command your troops).

You can play multiplayer, with up to 32 players, with 26 elite fighting forces and 13 diverse conflict zones.
