Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, announced today that SWAT®: Target Liberty, a 3rd person tactical shooter game, shipped to stores nationwide. Developed by 3G Studios, the new SWAT: Target Liberty game makes its handheld debut exclusively on the PSP®.
The SWAT: Target Liberty game is set in New York City where an elite special weapons and tactics team is tasked with thwarting an ever increasing number of international terrorist threats.
