    Een schreeuw om hulp. Jij reageert. Leid je elite-eenheid van tactische experts in een stad vol bewapende criminelen en explosieve situaties die alleen door jouw team kunnen worden aangepakt. Neem het op tegen het uitschot van de stad in deze authentieke, spannende topper onder de tactische actie shooters. Want wanneer SWAT wordt opgeroepen moet jij antwoorden.

Press Release:

    LOS ANGELES - April 5, 2005
    - SWAT® 4, the latest edition of the popular award-winning SWAT franchise, has shipped for the PC to retail outlets nationwide. Developed by Irrational Games, SWAT 4 allows players to take control of a squad of up to five SWAT officers tasked with performing dangerous operations such as high risk warrant service, rapid deployment, barricaded suspects and hostage situations. To ensure authenticity, VU Games enlisted Ken Thatcher, a 24-year SWAT veteran, as the game’s consultant.

    From intense hostage situations to high risk undercover operations, players will tactically command their teams and address every situation differently, where a split second mistake could lead to failure. Tension is the key element of SWAT 4, and the game emphasizes tactical deployment over pure run-and-gun action. Proper use of a broad range of real police gear, including tactical mainstays such as the Colt M-4 carbine, the Benelli M4 Super 90 shotgun and Surefire tactical lights, will help the team to overcome any obstacle, rescue endangered civilians, and bring the bad guys to justice.

    SWAT 4’s 14 single-player missions feature random enemy placement ensuring the player’s experience is different each time the level is played. Players can also use the quick mission maker to create and customize missions, including modification of enemy and civilian AI, mission objectives and more. SWAT 4 includes extensive multiplayer functionality including co-operative modes and team based competitive modes with up to 16 players.

    SWAT 4 carries a suggested retail prices of $49.99 for the PC and has been rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB. For additional information please visit
