Nokia has shipped its WWII strategy game for the N-Gage platform, Pathway to Glory. This action-packed game will hit stores this week around the world. Exclusive to the N-Gage platform, Pathway to Glory features some innovative and unique ways for gamers around the globe to connect, compete, cooperate and communicate in the online multiplayer game mode, based on the N-Gage Arena platform.
"Pathway to Glory truly showcases all that is unique about the N-Gage platform," says Gerard Wiener, Director, Network Game Solutions, Nokia. "We are very proud of this game and with the work that the Nokia development team and Red Lynx have done in creating the world's first mobile connected strategy game."
Players can connect to collaborate and compete in the Global Battle Ground via the N-Gage Arena, with support for up to 6 players with a total of 48 soldiers and several vehicles in a single battleground. Up to six players can also fight it out in the local multiplayer mode via Bluetooth wireless technology. Pathway to Glory includes mobile in-game voice communication with the Field Radio feature. This feature enables gamers to send voice messages to each other during the game, which get transmitted as a though a player's N-Gage game deck was acting as a field radio.
Gamers had a sneak peak of Pathway to Glory in August 2004 with a free two level demo available, which generated over 20,000 downloads in the first few days.
