Players fulfill their destiny as ''The Highlander''; Atari Corp. releases second CD title in one week for Jaguar CD.
An action adventure game based on the popular animated series, ``Highlander: The Last of the MacLeods'' boasts both a truly sensational story line and advanced gaming technology.
Players assume the role of Quentin MacLeod, an immortal whose destiny remained unclear until his mother revealed his true identity as ``The Highlander.'' With this knowledge, Quentin must set upon a quest to fulfill his destiny, rescue his village and save humanity from the evil Kortan.
``Highlander: The Last of the MacLeods'' features both original dialogue and Cinepak sequences from the animated series. Atari used Motion Capture technology in the development of the game, giving the 3-D characters lifelike movement.
``By releasing `Highlander: The Last of the MacLeods' and `Hoverstrike: Unconquered Lands' in successive weeks, our Jaguar CD title library is rapidly growing in scope and depth,'' said Ted Hoff, Atari's president of North American Operations. ``We will bring Jaguar gamers numerous top-quality titles for both the Jaguar cartridge and CD formats in the next several weeks.''
``Highlander: The Last of the MacLeods'' has a suggested retail price of $59.99, is rated K-A (appropriate for kids and adults) and is available in stores nationwide.
For more than 20 years, Atari has provided consumers with high- quality, value-priced entertainment. Atari markets Jaguar, the only American-made, advanced 64-bit entertainment system, and is located in Sunnyvale. -0-
