“We are excited to team with NovaLogic to publish the next action packed version of the popular Delta Force series exclusively for PlayStation 2 users,” said Cindy Cook, chief strategy and marketing officer for Vivendi Games. “Fans of the series, or gamers experiencing the action for the first time, will undoubtedly enjoy the massively multiplayer online capabilities as well as the formidable new missions set in South America and Iran.”

“We are very happy to partner with Sierra Entertainment, who have been making games even longer than we have,” said Lee Milligan, President of NovaLogic, “and we can’t wait until gamers get their hands on the next installment of the Black Hawk Down story to see what the excitement is all about.”

Delta Force Black Hawk Down: Team Sabre will be available exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in November 2006 for a suggested retail price of $29.99, with an ESRB “T” for Teen rating.

Key game features include:

TWO ALL NEW SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGNS – Embark on 11 challenging missions through treacherous South American jungles and across the high deserts of Iran. Insert by Black Hawk into enemy territory, fight your way through a mountain stronghold and pursue the enemy through hostile oil fields.

NEW WEAPONS, SQUAD COMMANDS AND CHARACTERS – Select from 24 weapons to maximize your effectiveness in battle, including two never before seen weapons in the Black Hawk Down series; the MK-23 SOCOM and the L115A sniper rifle. Take command of the world’s most elite Special Forces teams – Delta Force and the British SAS – and order your squad mates to lay down suppressive fire or execute a flanking maneuver on the enemy.

NEW MULTIPLAYER WARFARE – Join in the action in intense fire fights with up to 32 players online and seven unique game types including new variants and old classics. Persistent statistic tracking allows you to follow your progress as you rise through the ranks. Battle it out with up to four of your friends in split-screen or work together against a common foe in cooperative play. With 24 multiplayer maps to choose from and voice-over-net for immediate battlefield intel, prepare for battles that are even more intense than the original Black Hawk Down.
