Rumour has it that a new series of Delta Force games is currently in development for the PSP.
NovaLogic is inviting fans of tactical shooter Black Hawk Down to take part in the first official European Delta Force Xbox Live tournament.
Two years is a pretty long time for PS2 and Xbox owners to wait for a conversion by anyone's standards, but Black Hawk Down appears to be one of those rare instances where it's worth the wait. Rather than just lovelessly shovel a straight-up conversion onto each system with all the compromises that go with that, NovaLogic has employed two separate UK studios to produce versions tailored specifically to each platform - both significantly different in approach from the PC original, it turns out.
A new trailer for the PS2 version of NovaLogic's first-person shooter Delta Force - Black Hawk Down is now available on Eurofiles.
The game is being developed by Rebellion with a little help from some ex-Special Operations soldiers. It's based on actual missions undertaken as part of Operation Restore Hope, which the US army launched in Somalia in 1993.
Along with a single player mission mode and split-screen co-op, the game will feature online play for up to 32 players, with 25 maps and 7 different game types. We're promised detailed environments, realistic rag doll physics and superb cutscenes courtesy of the Asura game engine.
