Dallas, TX - April 24, 2001 - The Virtual Armed Forces is in an hour of need and has officially called upon all PC gamers to join its ranks and fight in a Second World War. This fall, PC gamers everywhere will receive a draft notification reporting them to their local PC game store for their participation in a top-secret mission: Project Hidden & Dangerous 2. High-end computer and video game publisher GodGames, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.

Guns get blasting in this first and third person tactical shooter that builds upon the tremendous success of its predecessor. Players will be challenged by the game's unique blend of action, strategy and tactics in more than 20 complex missions over nine different campaigns. Sweat will be dripping down virtual soldier's faces in locations throughout the world, from the lush jungles of Burma to the harsh deserts of Africa.
