Sony Online Entertainment, Inc., maker of the Everquest series, today announced that it's developing a military turn-based strategy game for the PSP called Field Commander.
"Field Commander gives players the power to outwit the enemy at every turn because it focuses on what is important -- strategy," said Clint Worley, Field Commander Producer. "You can delve into the game's engrossing story while combating enemies alone, or utilize the impressive array of multi-player options and enjoy defeating your enemies from across the globe, country or office."
Players will take the role of a Field Commander working for an independent organization established by the Allied Nations to defend the world against an evil terrorist organization bent on inciting wars, dealing illicit arms and global domination.
With an arsenal of 15 army divisions and 11 commanding officers to choose from, players will be able to command the land, skies and sea. Orchestrate an offensive attack through 30 unique missions, each one coming alive in beautiful 3D environments with highly-detailed terrain and dynamic visual effects. Alternately, players can compete against each other, utilizing the PSP(TM) system's wireless networking capabilities.
