FOR FREEDOM!!! ELECTRONIC ARTS AND CRAVE ENTERTAINMENT SHIP FREEDOM FORCE FOR THE PC
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 26, 2002 – Pow! Bam! Crash! Villains Beware! A team of unlikely heroes known only as “Freedom Force” has arrived to protect the citizens of Patriot City from the evil Lord Dominion. Heroic force will be called upon as EA and Crave Entertainment today announced that they have begun to ship the comic-inspired tactical Role Playing Game Freedom Force’ for the PC.
Flashing back to the Silver Age of comic books, players can form, train and lead Freedom Force, a team of 14 original comic heroes sent to Patriot City, to foil Lord Dominion’s scheme of having the planet Earth destroy itself. The game consists of 22 unique missions, the majority of which will require a squad of four heroes such as the patriotic leader “Minuteman,” the powerful “ManBot” and the fiery “El Diablo.”
A fully featured RPG skill system rewards strategic heroes by allowing players to juggle stats, pump up powers, recruit new heroes and strengthen existing heroes based on experience accumulated in tactical missions. The game’s enhanced “mod” element allows players to completely customize and/or create their own unique heroes and personal “skins.”
Freedom Force is equipped with up to four-player online/LAN multiplayer support, including support for the GameSpy Arcade player matchmaking service. Freedom Force for the PC is developed exclusively by Irrational Games and carries a “T” (Teen) rating from the ESRB and MSRP of US$39.99.
