Set in the year 2032, Hostile Waters is an action/strategy game in which the player must conquer the cabal of Old World magnates - a group of powerless financiers, despots, presidents and death loving military men who are working to destabilise the planet and return it to its fractured hate-ridden war economy past.
Featuring cutting edge 3D technology and state of the art graphical environments, the player must utilise strategic decision-making throughout the twenty different missions, as well as taking hands-on control of the different attack vehicles.
The Hostile Waters storyline, written by one of Britain's foremost 'dark' comic scriptwriters, Warren Ellis, manages to portray an insightful yet chilling vision of the world in the future.
Narration has been provided by Tom Baker, best known as televisions longest serving Doctor Who in the classic BBC series, along with Glynis Barber and Paul Darrow, both of Blake 7 fame, all of whom add to the atmospheric suspense and drama. To save the world for eternal peace, humanity must learn how to go to war again. To take back the future, they must kill for peace. These are indeed Hostile Waters.
