COPS 2170: The Power of Law Goes
Gold

Montreal, Canada. December 9, 2004.
Strategy First, Game Factory Interactive and MiST land – South are pleased to
announce that the colorful hybrid of tactical strategy and RPG elements, COPS
2170: The Power of Law, has gone gold. Release is scheduled for the end of
January, 2005.

“In COPS 2170: The Power of Law,
players have the power to decide what type of Cop they want to be. They must
choose their allies and enemies carefully in order to restore ‘control and
harmony’ to a rapidly deteriorating metropolis,” says Jay Podilchuk, the
Producer at Strategy First.

“One feature that players will
appreciate is the option to play in either the first or third person view. With
the ability to look at a scenario from a different angle, players can really
broaden their perspective of a particular scene,” says Vitaly Shutov, President
of MiST land – South.

About COPS 2170: The Power of Law

You take on the role of rookie cop,
Katrin, as she patrols the mean streets of a futuristic, cyberpunk metropolis.
Katrin is a beautiful, young, police academy graduate who is an excellent
student and exceptional athlete. Unbeknownst to Katrin, her recent assignment
concerning a series of terror attacks is about to propel her into the path of an
evil genius. The city streets she is fighting to protect are unlike any modern
day metropolis. The government implants cyber links into newborns, marking them
with a unique ID in order to ensure complete control, watching over everything
for the “safety of the public.”

COPS 2170: The Power of Law features
stunning 3D environments ranging from cramped private quarters to sprawling city
streets, all filled with more than 60 NPCs. As Katrin, players can recruit up to
seven of their fellow officers, and use a large arsenal of weaponry and
equipment—including a scanner, rifles, and machine guns—to win large-scale
battles against the city’s criminal masterminds. Missions vary from suppressing
small-scale riots to challenging the security staff of a massive yet corrupt
corporation. Each mission can be accomplished using a variety of strategies,
giving the player multiple paths to victory and hours of exciting gameplay.
