SWAT: Target Liberty Raids the PSP

Units Deploy To Stores in Fall 2007

Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, announced today that SWAT: Target Liberty, a 3rd person tactical shooter game, will make its handheld debut exclusively on the PSP. Developed by 3G Studios, the new SWAT: Target Liberty game will be available on the PSP system in fall 2007.

Part of an award-winning lineage of games, SWAT: Target Liberty captures the heart-pumping action of real-life close quarters combat of specialized police units. With the help of Ken Thatcher, a 29-year Los Angeles S.W.A.T. veteran enlisted as the game’s consultant, SWAT: Target Liberty for the PSP system captures the same authenticity as previous titles.

Penned by script writer Scott Rosenbaum (The Shield), the SWAT: Target Liberty game action is set in New York City where a special weapons and tactics team is tasked with thwarting an ever increasing number of international terrorist threats. Each officer in the unit has a specialty and using a unique skill system, the player can upgrade their individual combat expertise to increase their chances of success. The game will also feature an ad-hoc multiplayer system which allows gamers to play in a variety of game modes.

“Sierra Entertainment has a rich history of creating SWAT games that are immersive and full of the intense action and we don’t intend to disappoint with this upcoming version for the PSP system,” said Cindy Cook, chief strategy and marketing officer for Vivendi Games. “SWAT: Target Liberty was designed specifically for the PSP system to ensure it delivers a full featured, high energy operation that lives up to what fans expect from these hit tactical titles. The genuine feel of the game adds to the adrenalin rush and excitement gamers will experience on their PSP systems this fall.”

Fans can polish up on their skills now by playing the award-winning wireless version of SWAT. Named 2006 “Mobile Game of the Year” by Spike TV, the game is currently available on mobile phones in North America and Europe.
