    Konami of Europe unveils The Regiment for PC.

    Developed by Kuju Entertainment’s London studio and overseen by Konami of Europe’s Product Development arm, The Regiment casts the player as a member of one of the world’s most feared and respected counter-terrorist units: the S.A.S. Based on briefings and scenarios supplied by S.A.S veterans, The Regiment is a realistic interpretation of infiltration and armed combat. Players oversee a four-man unit as they assault a series of terrorist strongholds, with orders to terminate hostiles and rescue stricken hostages. Starting with missions based in London’s Houses of Parliament and a situation in the Underground system, the game culminates in a simulation of the Iranian Embassy Siege of 1980.

    The Regiment utilises tactics and procedures pioneered by the CRW (Counter Revolutionary Warfare) arm of the S.A.S, and has been designed in close collaboration with ex-staff instructors. Starting with an in-game briefing by John MacAleese - a veteran of the Iranian Embassy Siege - players are dropped straight into each mission. The game play is then focused on action, as players use a simple yet effective ordering system to deploy their colleagues, and use specially selected weapons and hand-to-hand methods to take out the terrorist threats.

    Training modes and multi-player team training modes allow the player to enjoy The Regiment as a one-player or team-player experience, while Kuju’s use of the Unreal Engine and its Karma Physics capabilities bring its real-life scenarios to life. "The Regiment is an incredibly realistic interpretation of one of the world’s greatest armed units," commented Tony Bickley, Head of Product Development. "Its visually stunning levels, fantastic realism and tense missions combine to create a truly engrossing and nerve-wracking experience." The brutal reality of a siege situation or terrorist attack are faithfully recreated, thanks in no small part to the help of S.A.S veterans, who have helped create a memorable game.

    game info:
    In the shadowy world of international terrorism one real name is feared: the S.A.S. Trained in the most realistic conditions and honed to a fine edge, the S.A.S. are the World's most respected and feared counter-terrorism force.

    "Double tapping" is firing two shots as rapidly as possible at the same target, i.e. a double tap to the head is a confirmed kill. The SAS are trained to make sure the bad guy goes down. The method is used by numerous other agencies throughout the world.

    Game sounds interesting...I'll look for it. Thanks!

      What MM said. I don't think I've ever seen the term double tap used as much as it was in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six (the book that is). I swear he must have had that on copy/paste the entire time.
      “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

        thanks for the info! It will be interesting to read the reviews for this game. So far the few fan reviews that I have read about The Regiment have been positive.
