(SOE) today announced that it will be taking combat to the next level with Field Commander, the first military turn-based strategy game for the PSPTM system.

"Field Commander gives players the power to outwit the enemy at every turn because it focuses on what is important â€“ strategy," said Clint Worley, Field Commander Producer. "You can delve into the game's engrossing story while combating enemies alone, or utilize the impressive array of multi-player options and enjoy defeating your enemies from across the globe, country or office."

With an arsenal of 15 army divisions and 11 commanding officers to choose from, players will be able to command the land, skies and sea. Orchestrate an offensive attack through 30 unique missions, each one coming alive in beautiful 3D environments with highly-detailed terrain and dynamic visual effects.
