Activision Announces Call of Duty

   Activision announced today Call of Duty for the Playstation 2, a new First-Person Action game that allows players to experience intensity of war through soldier's eyes. The game takes place during the 20th century and features heroic conflicts, with gripping, cinematic, and authentic warfare. Players experience the war through the perspective of multiple characters. These viewpoints span numerous countries, roles and duties allowing for the most authentic portrayal of war in a game yet. The Call of Duty brand is multi-platform with releases expected for both console and PC games.

   "The Call of Duty brand will deliver the most authentic, intense and realistic battlefield experience from the perspective of multiple soldiers battling on the frontlines," states Dusty Welch, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc.  "No one soldier, or even one country, single-handedly wins wars, but rather wars are won through the collective efforts, teamwork and bonds of everyday citizen soldiers from an alliance of nationalities who all heed their call of duty.  It's the camaraderie of common soldiers coupled with authentic cinematic gameplay that will define the Call of Duty series."

   "We're thrilled to partner with Activision on pioneering the Call of Duty brand," said Grant Collier, president of Infinity Ward, Inc.  "Infinity Ward's mission is to make a game that is as historically accurate and realistic as possible, that will bring a new level of cinematic action to the genre.  We are constantly researching locales, time periods, weapons and
vehicles in order to immerse players in the harsh realities of World War II. When gamers get their hands on Call of Duty, they will experience gripping battle sequences, ultra realistic environments, and in-the-trenches, non-stop gameplay that will blow them away."
