    Players Rock Greek Gods Back to Mount Olympus In This Frenetic, Action-Shooter

    San Francisco – June 10, 2003 – Ubi Soft Entertainment rocks PCs back to ancient Greece with the launch of Will Rock, a high-adrenaline first-person shooter for the PC. Will Rock transports players to the ancient world of Greek Gods and mythical creatures, where legions of enemies attack from every corner. Armed with enough weapons to service a small country, Will Rock satisfies any shooter fan’s trigger fix. Will Rock is also the first game to feature the Black Box Interactive Game Guide™, a fully-interactive strategy guide included in the game. Will Rock is rated “M—Mature” and is available at retail locations nationwide.

    Will Rock’s high-adrenaline, frenetic gameplay lets shooter fans rediscover their love for the pure shooter,” said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubi Soft Entertainment. “The inclusion of the Black Box Interactive Game Guide is an added bonus for any gamer.

    Developed by Saber Interactive, Will Rock's story focuses on Willford Rockwell (aka Will Rock), an unlikely hero whose body is inhabited by the spirit of an extremely angry Titan. The visually stunning environments make players believe they have traveled back to Ancient Greece, and they’ll be armed with enough weapons to single-handedly win the Trojan War. Will Rock's proprietary next-gen, 3D engine and unique weaponry let players do a little more than shoot holes in enemies. Will Rock’s tough boss enemies -- including Medusa, Cyclops and Zeus -- are the most feared gods in history. To these bad asses, bullets are like mosquito bites. Luckily for players, Will’s weapons -- including the Medusa Gun, Flaming Crossbow and Acid Rifle -- can melt, inflate and even shatter both enemies and the environment. The game’s "real-time shattering" technology allows players to break almost everything they see, providing a truly interactive experience. Players will interact against lightning blot throwing, Zeus, in the game’s grand finale to see who is the true king of the gods.

    Will Rock’s 10 dizzying single-player levels and additional expertly designed multiplayer maps is jam packed with frenetic shooting action that will make the most experienced gamer sweat. With Will Rock’s advanced gameplay technology and level design, players must rely on quick thinking and reactions to solve environmental puzzles and survive the hardcore action!

    • Decimate 15 freakish varieties of monsters and minions, including four colossally tough bosses.

    Earth-shattering physics effects mean objects and enemies are horribly deformed in real-time.

    Share the mayhem in six head-exploding multiplayer modes for up to eight players.

    Prepare for gut-busting arcade-style shooter action at ludicrous speeds.

    Frag, melt, petrify, inflate, and torch enemies with destructive powers beyond your wildest dreams.
