BLACK OPS DEVELOPS "FUGITIVE HUNTER" FOR PLAYSTATION 2.

They can run, they can hide, but in the end, the most wanted will not escape the relentless pursuit of Jake Seaver in Atari's "Fugitive Hunter" for the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system. Developed by Black Ops Entertainment, "Fugitive Hunter" is a fierce, first-person action game featuring an innovative third-person Capture Mode that allows players to bring the world's most sinister criminals to justice.

"`Fugitive Hunter' was inspired by the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List and completely captures the excitement, drama and danger associated with hunting down today's worst criminal elements," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and general manager of Infogrames' Los Angeles studio. "Players are transported into the role of a modern day bounty hunter and tasked with not only tracking these fugitives down but more importantly bringing them to justice."

Players take the role of Jake Seaver, a former Navy Seal, who specializes in the apprehension of criminals too elusive for law enforcement agencies. When a terrorist bomb destroys Seaver's home base at the Criminal Interdiction and Fugitive Recovery (CIFR) headquarters, players set out to find those responsible. The manhunt spans exotic locations worldwide as players unravel an expanding web of terror that ultimately leads to the Middle East.

A total of nine highly modifiable weapons will be available throughout "Fugitive Hunter." Players begin the game with a pneumatic flechette dart gun to immobilize enemies, but can quickly secure more powerful weaponry, such as the assault rifle, flamethrower and the variable-ammo grenade launcher. Many weapons can be customized during gameplay by attaching sniper scopes and silencers, which provides nearly endless variation to every firefight.

"Fugitive Hunter" also features true-to-life motion capture animation for every character in the game -- from standard running cycles and defensive maneuvers, to spectacular stunt animations never before seen in a video game. Each motion is the work of the same Hollywood stunt doubles responsible for the amazing work in "The Matrix" and "Fight Club."
