So we are now just days away from the start of Gamescom 2023. We are expecting news on upcoming titles such as Alan Wake 2. We also expect GSC Game World to bring us something new on STALKER 2. Currently, there is no release date, and maybe next week that will change. With all the reveals of games making it to Gamescom one franchise returning caught me by surprise. The classic shooter Delta Force is back after making its debut a quarter of a century ago. We will see more at opening night live but for now, we have an announcement trailer below.

The original game was released way back in 1998 by Novalogic. It offered a campaign and a large open multi-player experience. The game also had a sequel in 1999 and a third entry Delta Force Land Warrior a year later. The second game was something special, it allowed players to make their own multi-player maps. And when playing this with friends we had an unlimited amount of maps to experience. So for me personally I put in quite a few hours into the series.

Delta Force Today

Today the series is in the hands of developer TiMi Studio Group. This upcoming release is going to be a cross-platform release. So we are expecting a release on PC, consoles as well as mobile. The producer, Shadow Gup told IGN.

Our team has always been interested in creating realistic military-themed shooter games,. As the producer, my first FPS game was Delta Force, and it left a lasting impression on me. Delta Force was celebrated for its realistic depiction of open-world combat, large-scale multiplayer PVP, and its portrayal of “Tip of the Spear” Special Operations Forces. Even today, these features continue to have immense appeal and there remains potential for more innovation. We hope to show the evolution of these features, while carrying on the legacy of the gameplay pillars. That’s why we decided to reboot the Delta Force franchise. We’re proud to carry on that tradition and create a large, dangerous, and unpredictable world, where you need to complete various missions, face challenges, and earn rewards.

It also seems that like myself, the developers are fans of the originals as the IGN interview continues.

Our objective is to uphold the authentic essence of the original Delta Force game while infusing a near-future flavor from both artistic and narrative perspectives. To achieve this, we developed the overarching storyline with realistic themes, employed real-life actors for character building, utilized photogrammetry for 3D world creation, captured tactical movements from military professionals, and sought guidance from former Special Forces personnel to ensure an authentic tone of resolute realism and professionalism within the military theme.

We also learned that the campaign will be based on the 2001 movie Black Hawk Down. This is not a novelty when it comes to the series. The 2003 entry was titled Black Hawk Down which also took inspiration from the film.

Our game designers chose to build an immersive multiplayer battleground that could accommodate even larger-scale PVP than the previous 32-player limit. To create a grand atmosphere of combat on ground, sea, and air, we designed a variety of methods for engagement and maps that integrate diverse terrain features such as vertical height differences and caves, as well as different vehicle routes.

We also created unique, technologically advanced vehicles that players can use in the game, including assault vehicles, helicopters, armored vehicles, attack boats, terrain vehicles, jeeps, pickups, fighter jets, and drones. These vehicles add to the gameplay experience of large-scale PVP.

Needless to say, I’m very interested in what they have planned. I still play the original game and its sequel, so this modern take on the franchise excites me.
