CHAPEL HILL, NC - October 21, 2004 - Merscom LLC today announced "Space Interceptor: Project Freedom" for PC has gone gold. This high-quality space combat arcade-style game, with its dazzling visuals and straight-ahead action gameplay, raises the bar for "value-priced" games. Retailing for $19.99 (USD) and rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB for Mild Language and Violence, "Space Interceptor: Project Freedom" was developed by CITY Interactive and is scheduled to arrive on store shelves beginning November 9, 2004. The game will be distributed by Atari and will be widely available across the country.
"Space Interceptor: Project Freedom" orbits you into the third millennium, where Earth's mega-corporations, having exhausted all natural resources, now colonize the solar system. As a space fighter pilot contracted by one of the few remaining "good guys", a company called Project Freedom, you must battle their ruthless competition in the lawless new frontier of outer space.
In command of a heavily armed fighter ship, your missions include escort, strike and rescue operations. You are the hero as you blaze through enemy fleets, tumbling asteroid fields, and snaking planet-side canyons. As you simultaneously fire ship-to-ship missiles, ship-to-ground missiles, photon torpedoes and plasma bombs, grand explosions create columns of light and energy in space locations beautifully rendered from actual recorded data.
