Remember Carrier Command? Rage did. They remembered it so well they stripped it down, sexed it up and released it in the form of 2001's Hostile Waters. But without any way to create custom content and no multi-player, despite it's brilliance the game lacked longevity. Not any longer.

The Hostile Waters site is now live! Information is thin on the ground this early on but over time it will provide news and information as the mod develops. The site is also a new place for the Hostile community, disbanded with the closure of the official Interplay forums, to gather.

Concept 'art' from the original game:

  • Compelling script by Warren Ellis
  • The voices of Tom Baker, Glynis Barber and Paul Darrow
  • Heart-stopping action
  • Unique, powerful interface allowing the command and control of up to ten vehicles
    • Picture-in-picture helps the player monitor vehicles tasks and progress
    • Control units in 3rd person action modes as well as traditional top-down real-time strategy mode

  • Land, sea and air units
  • Comprehensive in-game tutorials
  • Over 20 missions including stealth, brute force and cunning
  • NEW: Huge graphical, AI, physics and animation improvements while keeping the same visual style
  • NEW: The ability to create custom content including vehicles and islands
  • NEW: An expansive multi-player element including:
    • A Halo 2-style team/clan-centred 'join game' interface alongside the more traditional server list method
    • Multiple gametypes: deathmatch, carrier/team deathmatch, assault, etc.
    • Customisable vehicles, from weaponry and armour to colour highlights and decals
    • Co-op mode against the computer both on pre-existing single-player and new, dedicated islands

As you can see we've got some pretty big plans - head on over and see everything else!
