Interplay is collaborating with BattleBorne Entertainment, or so we're told, on the development and distribution of Airborne: Liberation, described as a fast-paced third person action combat game set during World War II. Sounds like just the sort of innovative thinking needed to help balance the Interplay chequebook. It really does.

Airborne: Liberation sees Private Patrick Harper - the player - dropped into Normandy in the pre-dawn hours of June 6th, 1944 during the D-Day invasion, and charts his fight through war-torn Europe to Market Garden, the siege of Bastogne, and the final assault into Germany, with individual and squad-based combat. Apparently every attempt is being made to make the game as historically accurate as possible.

So, watch out for Airborne: Liberation, which plans to seize on the 60th anniversary of D-Day in June 2004 for its release date on current generation consoles. Inspired.
