NEW NETSTORM DEMO STORMS THE INTERNET
Innovative Action-Strategy Game Delivers Groundbreaking Internet Warfare
Santa Monica, CA, November 1, 1997 -- An upgraded demo of NetStorm, Activision, Inc.'s ground-breaking real-time action strategy game designed for Internet play, is now available for download on the Activision Web site. The new demo delivers enhanced gameplay through a number of technological and design advancements.
Incorporating player feedback, the new NetStorm demo offers a "meltdown" feature that enables players to destroy their opponents' bridges. The demo also features stronger multiplayer connectivity by allowing players to connect to the Battlemaster prior to entering battle and showing when players are firewalled. Additionally, players can choose whether alliances are breakable or unbreakable during battle. The new demo is fully localized in both English and German.
The upgraded NetStorm demo allows players to familiarize themselves with the game's unique mechanics and units in six "early" missions and three single- player missions. Players can then test their wartime acumen as they challenge other players to dominate the skies through island-to-island warfare using a variety of storm-powered units including the Sun Disc Thrower, the Whirligig, and the Sun Barricade.
NetStorm, which is developed by Titanic Entertainment and published by Activision, Inc., is expected to be available in retail stores the week of November 3.
