November 14 th 2007: SoF: Payback has officially been released in the USA.
" When a routine escort mission goes horribly wrong, freelance mercenary Thomas Mason finds himself battling an insidious enemy that knows no boundaries. Traditional armies can not handle these extremists – only underground guns for hire can fight a war this dirty and get results.
Soldier of Fortune Payback evolves the signature gameplay of its predecessors with refined controls, tension-packed warzones, and an enemy damage system that may be shocking to even experienced FPS players. Boasting more weapons options than any previous Soldier of Fortune installment, Soldier of Fortune Payback’s impressive arsenal includes an array of more than 30 weapons including sub-machine guns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, projectile explosives, weapon attachments and cutting-edge tactical weapons."
June 2007: Activision has confirmed that the rumors are true: Soldier of Fortune (3): Pay Back is being published by Activision's Minneapolis office. Unfortunately there is no further information to share at this point, but Activision hope to come foreward with more news very soon.
