READING (26th June, 2007)– Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, today announced a Collector’s Edition version of the upcoming action-strategy PC game, World in Conflict™, by Massive Entertainment. The World in Conflict Collector’s Edition will include limited edition extras for hardcore fans and Cold War enthusiasts, including an authentic piece of the Berlin Wall, a bonus DVD from The History Channel®, behind the scenes videos and special packaging. Additional pre-order bonuses for the Collector’s Edition and Standard Edition versions of World in Conflict are now available at participating retailers across North America.
World in Conflict will be available in September 2007.
World in Conflict is the highly anticipated action-strategy game from Sierra’s own Massive Entertainment that asks the terrifying question, what if the cold war didn’t end? The game represents the next-generation of strategy games, pitting Cold War-era superpowers against one another with completely destructible 3D battlefields, blistering visuals utilising DX10 technology, and an innovative gameplay mechanism, removing traditional resource-gathering and base-building in favor of non-stop combat, tactical decisions and an FPS-like addiction to intense action.
“The World in Conflict Collector’s Edition offers gamers the chance to grab a piece of history– an authentic piece of the Berlin Wall, a monument that once divided the Cold War superpowers right through the heart of Europe,” said Al Simone, senior vice president of global marketing, Sierra Entertainment.
“In World in Conflict, the Berlin Wall isn’t dismantled in the name of global peace, it is obliterated by the collateral damage of the opening salvos of World War III. We are excited to offer gamers this exclusive opportunity to grab this piece of history as well as the other amazing added content in the Collector’s Edition version.”
The World in Conflict Collector’s Edition will include:
• Authentic Piece of the Berlin Wall: An authentic piece of Cold War history, taken directly from remnants of the famed Berlin Wall that once divided Europe along the lines of Superpower control.
•“Modern Marvels©: The Berlin Wall” by The History Channel®: Learn the definitive tale of one of the most hated symbols of oppression in history and hear stories of those who braved the deadly No Man's Land between East and West.
• Behind the Scenes Videos– Explore the making of World in Conflict through extensive behind the scenes videos, showing development secret, gameplay tips and more.
• Creative Headset HS-390– Call out commands to your teammates using the limited edition of the World in Conflict Headset HS-390 of Creative Labs.
