Activision Announces New Lineup of Games

(May 19, 2001) Activision, Inc. has announced its new lineup of games which includes Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Soldier of Fortune 2, two titles based on the Star Trek franchise – Star Trek Bridge Commander and Star Trek Armada II; and Supercar Street Challenge.

"Activision is committed to developing games that deliver hard-hitting game play, superior graphics and leading edge technology," states Ron Doornink, President and COO, Activision, Inc. "We are backing that commitment with capital resources, strategic alliances and the best talent in the industry."

Video Game Descriptions:

Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Return to Castle Wolfenstein uncovers Hitler's horrifying obsession with the occult, living dead, and genetic mutations. As B.J. Blaskowitz, an Army Ranger recruited into the Office of Secret Actions (OSA), players infiltrate deep into the twisted bowels of the Third Reich to battle the horrific super-soldiers, zombies and mutants forged in the unearthly experiments of Heinrich Himmler. The game is being developed by Gray Matter Interactive Studios in conjunction with id Software and is expected to hit retail shelves this fall.

Soldier of Fortune II Double Helix
Soldier of Fortune II Double Helix features advanced artificial intelligence and real-world weaponry, enemies and military devices, to put players in the role of John Mullins - a military consultant working for the top-secret anti-terrorist group known only as The Shop. As Mullins, players must tackle a wide-range of missions from hostage rescue and intelligence gathering to search-and-destroy. Additionally, in order to complete their objectives, players will make use of a variety of game play tactics ranging from full frontal assaults to stealth and subterfuge. Soldier of Fortune II Double Helix is being developed by Raven Software and is expected to hit retail shelves this winter.

Star Trek Bridge Commander
Star Trek Bridge Commander is the first space simulation ever to put gamers on the bridge as the captain of a Galaxy or Sovereign-class starship. Gamers will be able to control the action directly in a fully immersive tactical mode or by issuing commands to their crew while viewing the action from the bridge. The game will feature a variety of challenging missions compelling starship combat, cameo appearances by Captain Picard and Commander Data, and a multiplayer option that will give gamers the chance to command any ship in the game. Star Trek Bridge Commander is being developed for Activision by Lawrence Holland’s Totally Games and is expected to hit retail shelves this summer.

Star Trek Armada II
Star Trek Armada II is the sequel to the game Star Trek Armada, the best-selling Star Trek RTS ever. The game adds a new level of strategy and realism to the original by allowing players to command from a 3D tactical view. Set in The Next Generation universe, Star Trek Armada II’s story unfolds through three single-player campaigns played as the Federation, Klingons and Borg. Additionally, the Cardassians, Romulans and Species 8472 will join the fray throughout the single-player campaigns. The game is being developed for Activision by Mad Doc Software and is expected to hit retail shelves this fall.

Supercar Street Challenge
Supercar Street Challenge seats gamers behind the wheel of more than nine next-generation supercars that have been licensed from car manufacturers like Lotus, Bertone and Callaway. Players can optionally design and race their own car using the game’s styling studio. Players can also compete in no-holds-barred races through the streets of seven interactive city environments. Supercar Street Challenge is being developed for Activision by Exakt Entertainment and is expected to hit retail shelves this summer.
