Deep Silver will release a new game based on the War on Terror, WOFOR. Well, who knows? Entertainment value presumably. What an unusual que--OH it's the name of the game. WOFOR - War on Terror. Good one. It's due out in Q1 2006.

"The time is an uncertain one." (We've got 12:57. Oh, you mean something else.) "Tensions are high, people are scared. Terrorist groups work in unity, launching lethal assaults in major metropolitan cities across the globe. Their agenda is unknown; their attacks are precise and deadly. Innocents die." Sentences are fragmented. "Multinational strike force WOFOR (World Forces) stands between the terrorists and global anarchy." Meanwhile, waffle stands between journalists and the point of the press release.

Basically: control anti-terror unit, 30 missions in real world locations including recognisable city locations (we'll be the judge of that), there's vehicles, real weapons and screenshots. Looks like a mixture of strategy and action.
