SPECIAL OPERATIONS 2
America Online: ORIGIN CS, OSI
(Austin, TX)--An untested superfighter, twenty new missions and tactical
nuclear missiles come together in ORIGIN Systems' release of
SPECIAL OPERATIONS 2, the final chapter of the WING COMMANDER II saga.
SPECIAL OPERATIONS 2 is the second add-on module for
WING COMMANDER II: VENGEANCE OF THE KILRATHI. In the story, Jazz Colson,
the treacherous pilot who betrayed the human forces, escapes during the
journey to his death sentence. Bluehair, the player's character, must
track him down and find the Mandarins, other human traitors now fighting
alongside the tiger-like Kilrathi race.
The player will recognize some familiar faces. Maniac is back, and is now
leading a wing of new test pilots flying the Morningstar in combat.
The Morningstar is the Confederation's newest superfighter, equipped
with Mace tactical nuclear missiles capable of wiping out an entire
Kilrathi squadron. The player can even transfer his own character from
WING COMMANDER II or SPECIAL OPERATIONS 1. A special Mission Selector
program allows re-flight of any sortie in the WING COMMANDER II series.
"This is definitely action-packed, one thing right after another,"
according to Lead Programmer Charles Cafrelli. "There's even a new base
called 'Ayres Rock' built into an asteroid. It's our first assymetrical item.
When you fly around it, there are 67 views."
SPECIAL OPERATIONS 2 is available through software distributors and major
retailers with a suggested retail price of $29.95.
WING COMMANDER II: VENGEANCE OF THE KILRATHI is required to play
SPECIAL OPERATIONS 2. To date, the Wing Commander line has sold more
than 500,000 units worldwide and garnered a host of awards, including
Game of the Year honors from publications such as Computer Game Review,
Video Games and Computer Entertainment, PC Games Plus (Australia) and
