Every week gamers will be given the chance to participate in mammoth 150 player battles to compete for fantastic prizes which include a pot of £200 cash, top of the range Plantronics headsets and the ultimate end of the season prize of an Alienware PC!!

Each week participants' points are converted to virtual raffle tickets, with better performing players accruing more tickets. At the end of each evening, tickets will be placed in a raffle with the lucky winners being awarded instant cash prizes.

At the end of the 20-week season, players will be able to enter all the tickets they have accumulated from the season into a huge super draw to win a top of the range Alienware PC.

Joint Ops is the only FPS to allow players to participate in mammoth 150 player battles with no subscription fee, more than double the player hosting capability of any other FPS. Incorporating maps of up to 50 km sq for large-scale conflict, Joint Ops also fully supports squad play with its smaller scale squad maps, that provide a concentrated cluster of respawn battle points, to provide excellent close quarter battle environments. Along with a full 24-hour day/night cycle and over 29 different land, sea and air vehicles to control, Joint Ops represents a huge leap forward for online multiplayer FPS games.

Joint Operations®: Typhoon RisingTM (PC CD ROM) and Joint Ops: EscalationTM, are both in stores now! To find out more about the game visit the official game web site at

About Interactive Gaming (IGUK)

Interactive Gaming (IGUK) was established 4 years ago and is a non-for-profit trade association created with the assistance of ELSPA. It was designed to enable and promote gaming to more people in the UK as well as forming a coherent alliance between gaming centres. This allows IGUK to deal directly with the games publishers and our sponsors and easily organise large-scale national tournaments and leagues open to all, regardless of location and home facilities. Of course, such an alliance yields other benefits such as allowing IG UK members to deal directly with suppliers of hardware, software, accessories and connectivity, giving better pricing and a single point of contact for those companies wishing to sell their products to what was previously a disparate group of organisations.
