Unlike other first person shooter
games available today, Mercenary Wars features a unique stat system that players
can use to upgrade and customize their lifelike characters. The combat in the
game is designed to feel very realistic, while also allowing players to adjust
their speed, accuracy, and health stats.

Mercenary Wars is set in the not so
distant future in a world where order and society as we know them are a thing of
the past. The economies of the world have crashed and have been replaced with
total chaos. New alliances have been forged and the world is now controlled by
well-trained groups of mercenaries. Players must determine who to swear their
allegiance to and fight side-by-side to the death, if necessary, in the quest to
ensure becoming the new global powerhouse.

Mercenary Wars will also feature an
innovative Artificial Intelligence system where computer controlled "bots" can
be used in several ways ranging from practice to enhancing game play. Via four
difficulty modes, players can select their desired skill level no matter what
their previous FPS experience might be. Other features include multiple gameplay
modes, a variety of character types and races, extensive ranking system
including more than 50 different character ranks and title, an expansive number
of weapons and equipment available for character customization and a built-in
player-to-player audio communication tool for enhanced real-world combat
