Mindscape, one of the UK's leading software publishers and distributors is pleased to announce the release of Fire Captain, a brand new simulation/RTS game for the PC. Fire Captain, which is published by experienced French publishers Monte Cristo, is due to be released on the 25th February 2005 with a suggested selling price of Â£24.99.
The heat is on! Fire Captain ignites the 3D Real-Time Strategy genre with an entirely new enemy – the fire. Set in a metropolitan city along the US West coast, players face the perils of human-caused and natural disasters. Tackle windswept bush fires that threaten a hillside of suburban homes and the forest just beyond, battle chemical fires in manufacturing plants... scenarios are based on real-life events. Fire-fighting consultants worked closely with Monte Cristo Games to ensure ultra-realistic fire and smoke behaviour; accurate vehicles, units and fire-fighting tools and techniques that showcase the hazardous conditions and scenarios that thousands of fire-fighters around the world bravely face every day.
The game contains single and multiplayer modes, twelve increasingly difficult missions, nine fire-fighter specialist roles and thirteen high performance vehicles.
