Overview: Andrew Sterling, British MI6 agent and expert in the kind of covert operations the public doesn’t believe proper governments engage in. Caught spying in China, you await execution. Your government denies all knowledge of your activities and leaves you to die. However, a friend from your military past arranges your escape and, later, employs your unique talents at his private security agency. Your first mission--eliminating an arms dealer who supplies terrorists--propels you on a course where nothing is as it seems. Duty, honor, and allegiance obscure as you are snared in the machinations of a powerful-but-deluded secret society.

Cold Winter is the FPS that is set to take the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system by storm, with its extensive attention to detail and hyper-realistic gameplay dynamics, built specifically with the idea of creating a PC shooter experience for the console audience.

  • Extremely realistic depiction of zone-specific body damage and rag-doll death animations
  • Over 30 real-world weapons depicted in exacting detail enhances the action
