ACTIVISION AND ID SOFTWARE TAKE MULTIPLAYER WARFARE TO XBOX LIVE WITH RETURN TO CASTLE WOLFENSTEIN
Santa Monica, CA - Aug. 20, 2002 - Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) and id Software(tm) announced today that Return to Castle Wolfenstein for the Xbox(tm) video game system from Microsoft will take console gamers to the front lines with online multiplayer warfare via Xbox(tm) Live, the first comprehensive, world-class online game service by Microsoft set to launch on November 15. Presenting platform-specific multiplayer features, including squad-based and co-operative Internet and split-screen modes, and an epic single player experience, Return to Castle Wolfenstein is set to offer Xbox players unrivaled gaming action. Nerve Software, creators of the award-winning multiplayer feature in Return to Castle Wolfenstein for the PC, is developing the highly anticipated Xbox game, with id Software serving as executive producer. "By fusing the award-winning gameplay in Return to Castle Wolfenstein with new multiplayer modes, communication abilities, and technology, we’re delivering the definitive team warfare experience for Xbox, " said Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. Teams can coordinate and execute front-line attacks with extreme precision utilizing the Xbox Communicator, allowing players to verbally order air strikes, call for medics or even taunt opponents. With four distinct character classes and numerous gameplay modes to master, strategy and communication are the keys to victory on the battlefield. Return to Castle Wolfenstein’s Xbox multiplayer features allows players to challenge up to seven other gamers online utilizing Xbox Live’s matchmaking capabilities for intense, multiplayer warfare; engage in co-operative play through Xbox-system linked connections; or battle in two-player action through split-screen mode. Gamers can also look forward to new weaponry, an advanced target control system and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound capabilities. "It’s a great time to be a console gamer," states Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Worldwide Studios. "With the advanced technology of Xbox, console players will not only be able to experience the heart-stopping action of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein single player game, but also for the first time engage in the addictive multiplayer gameplay that PC gamers and critics have been raving about." Set against the backdrop of WWII, Return to Castle Wolfenstein plunges players into a maelstrom of action, espionage and covert operations, as an American soldier tasked with infiltrating the heart of Nazi Germany and stopping the darkest plans of the Third Reich. Throughout the game, players are locked in combat with waves of Nazi storm-troopers, undead Teutonic knights and the twisted products of genetic experimentation. Return to Castle Wolfenstein further draws the player into the nightmare with advanced artificial intelligence (AI), photo-realistic character and environment textures, revolutionary effects, and an immersive story that unfolds before the player like a movie.
