Defcon confirmed for September

We'd like to play a game.

Introversion has confirmed that Defcon is due out in September.

As we told you at the end of May, Introversion had been aiming for September having slipped past the game's original April target - and now they're happy to say so with conviction.

Inspired by '80s flick WarGames, Defcon is a game of global thermonuclear war, where players strategise and engage one another over a global map, trying to exterminate the enemy population whilst simultaneously disabling the enemy's ability to retaliate.

With lots of subs, silos and other aspects of global war to command, as well as an interesting-sounding real-time desktop mode, where players launch missiles and they actually take as long as they normally would to land on their opponent's doorstep, it's one of the PC games we're most looking forward to this year - and Introversion tells us we should be able to bring you hands-on previews and reviews in the next couple of months.

For more on Defcon, check out our extensive interview-preview thing from a few months back.
