Delta Force fans who have been patiently waiting for the series' next evolution can stop waiting. Delta Force - Black Hawk Down has finally taken shape with screenshots and several announcements made about the game today at E3. Set in Somalia in 1993, Black Hawk Down is based upon and around the Operation Restore Hope and Task Force Ranger campaigns. The player follows members of the Delta Force and US Army Rangers against the Somali warlords in the region of Mogadishu. A PC fact sheet reveals that players will get to take control of air and ground vehicles, open fire from vehicle-mounted weapons including a 50 calibre fixed machine gun and engage the enemy in close quarters battle or pick them off with the ubiquitous sniper rifle. The game will run off an improved version of Novalogic's game engine, and will appear on PC during the tail end of this year and on PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2003. The Xbox version of the game is being touted as a serious companion to the Xbox Live service. Internet play is definitely on the cards in both the Xbox and PC versions of the game (the latter through Novaworld), although details of this are currently scarce as you might imagine. Novalogic has released several screenshots of the PC version of the game to accompany the press releases. Related Feature - Delta Force - Black Hawk Down PC screenshots
