Default ProSIM\'s Air Assault Task Force Announced!
Press Release Teaser: Shrapnel Games Brings You Death From Above!   

News Release For Immediate Release

Shrapnel Games Brings You Death From Above!

Hampstead, NC, 27 September 2006

Long discussed on the Shrapnel Games blog, Shrapnel Games and ProSIM Company are
pleased to make the official announcement that Air Assault Task Force is now in the
works and is slated for release near year's end. Air Assault Task Force will be available
for Windows and will include an extensive, 100+ page paper manual.

With its roots based in the ATF engine series of titles (Raging Tiger, The Star and the
Crescent, The Falklands War: 1982, and of course ATF), Air Assault Task Force is a
brand new engine that represents the next level of command-time simulations from
ProSIM Company. As such it boasts an impressive array of features that will be pleasing
to both veterans of the ATF series and newcomers.

New players will appreciate the intuitive UI using a "select-unit, select-order" control
scheme. While common to your typical real-time clickfest, in the past the ATF games
used a "select-order, select-unit" paradigm, that while more in tune with the simulation
aspect, was slightly troublesome for some users. Now any level of gamer can jump into
Air Assault Task Force and instantly feel at ease.

Also helping are the brand new graphics. Using the latest in DirectX the playing fields
still retain all the realism that ProSIM is known for, but make information analysis much
cleaner than previously. Players will instantly be able to assess the situation, and when
combined with the simple change of how units are ordered, it creates a simulation whose
learning curve gently slopes, instead of suddenly spiking.

Old fans will love Air Assault Task Force for all the hallmark elements they come to
expect from ProSIM. The weapon and equipment database is extensive and meticulously
researched, the AI has been made even more cunning than before, the scenarios rich and
varied with the option to edit your own, and of course there's the multiplayer options.
Additionally, as always, Air Assault Task Force is fully backwards compatible with ATF
titles, instantly upgrading them. For example, you could load up a Raging Tiger: The
Second Korean War scenario and play it with all the new bells and whistles that Air
Assault Task Force possesses. That's right, unlike other wargame series you never need
to launch old applications, your games are always kept up to date!

Both new and old players will enjoy the three campaigns (and one mini-campaign)
featured in Air Assault Task Force. From the green Hell of Vietnam to the rugged
landscape of Afghanistan you'll fight using airmobile, infantry, armor, artillery, and
more. Air Assault Task Force takes you back in time to Vietnam, then to Somalia, and
then the War on Terror in Afghanistan. The mini-campaign features two scenarios set in
the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana.

As the end of the year grows closer stay tuned for more news on this upcoming exciting
title at both our website of www.shrapnelgames.com and our company blog, which is
accessible from the homepage. Air Assault Task Force, covering decades of airmobile
operations, will be a must-have for fans of modern warfare. Ultra-realistic (there's a
reason why ProSIM titles are used for real-world military training) but eminently
playable, Air Assault Task Force will set the new bar on realistic commercially available
military simulations.
