2K Games’ Shattered Union Now Available

3D Turn-Based War Strategy Game with
‘One-of-a-Kind Storyline’ Features Online and Offline Multiplayer Support and
Real Time Resolution of Turn-Based Moves

New York, NY – October 18, 2005 – 2K Games, a
publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today
announced that Shattered Union is now available in retail stores in North
America. Developed by veteran strategy game creators Pop Top Software, a
Take-Two studio, Shattered Union is available for the PC and Xbox® video game
and entertainment system from Microsoft.

In Shattered Union, following an increase in
terrorism, internal strife and ultimately, the nuclear destruction of
Washington, D.C, the United States shatters into a half-dozen nation-states that
become embroiled in a civil war. Gamers take the helm of one of these newfound
sovereignties or control European peacekeepers as they struggle to reunify
America by force, in either a dynamic and non-linear single player campaign or
in one-on-one multiplayer skirmishes with friends.

“Shattered Union has a unique and exciting
storyline,” said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. “With its
non-linear missions, fully destructible environments and addictive gameplay,
Shattered Union is a highly anticipated strategy game.”

Battles can be fought on a hex-grid — popular
among tried-and-true turn-based strategy gamers and military strategy gamers —
allowing for full six-way movement across the detailed landscapes of the United
States.

Key Features:

  • Modern 3D, “hex-grid”, turn-based, war
    strategy game.
  • Non-linear mission progression with changes
    based on player-made decisions.
  • Real-time resolution of turned-based moves.
    Take your time while you decide your move, but once you have selected your
    action, see the results all play out in full animation models, exploding
    vehicles, and burning cities and forests!
  • Fully destructible terrain/environment. As the
    battle proceeds, everything from explosions and destroyed buildings
    permanently mark the terrain. At the end, very little will look the same.
  • Fight your way across the United States! Had
    enough of the windy city? Then go ahead and bomb Chicago! Invade across the
    Rockies into California, capture the tank factories in Ohio, and lay siege to
    New York City! You decide – the fate of the nation is in your hands!
  • Choose to play as one of seven different
    factions: California Commonwealth, Pacifica, Republic of Texas, Great Plains
    Federation, The Confederacy, New England Alliance and the European
    Expeditionary Force.
  • Call up National Guard forces equipped with M1
    Abrams battle tanks, Bradley fighting vehicles, Apache helicopters and stealth
    bombers. Or utilize the unique Future Combat Systems (FCS) of each
    nation-state and mow your enemies down with futuristic weaponry.
  • Online and offline multiplayer support.

Shattered Union is rated T for Teen and is
available now for a suggested retail price of $29.99 on PC and $39.99 on Xbox.
