Posted by Staff
THQ today announced plans to unveil the first playable version of the highly anticipated Full Spectrum Warrior for the Xboxä videogame system from Microsoft at Microsoft’s annual Xbox gaming event, X03. Developed by Pandemic Studios, Full Spectrum Warrior is an original tactical-action military game scheduled for release in early 2004.

”With its unique tactical-action style of gameplay and roots as an actual U.S. Army training simulator, Full Spectrum Warrior allows players to experience the precision and emotion of modern day military operations,” said Jack Sorensen, executive vice president of worldwide studios, THQ. “We’re delighted with initial press response to the game and believe X03 is the perfect opportunity to give game industry opinion leaders their first hands-on experience with Full Spectrum Warrior.”

Full Spectrum Warrior is based on a light infantry-training simulator designed by Pandemic Studios for the U.S. Army as a tool to reinforce Army doctrine and squad tactics among troops. Full Spectrum Warrior is a squad-based, tactical-action game that delivers the experience of squad level command in the heat of battle. The product was developed with expertise from University of Southern California's Institute for Creative Technologies, which worked with Pandemic to bring state-of-the-art technology to the game. Designed to simulate today's challenges of urban combat missions, Full Spectrum Warrior delivers a level of realism and accuracy that has never been seen in a military-based game.
