Microsoft will this week roll out a multiplayer internet game which it claims will give gamers a space-action experience like nothing they've seen before.
Allegiance is a 3-D space war game conceived by the software giant's research laboratory and owes much of its inspiration to Star Trek. The multiplayer simulation game combines 16-bit 3-D graphics and 3-D sound. Players can pilot many different classes of ships or switch between a variety of roles.
Allegiance runs on Windows 95, 98 and NT 4.0, and will be available at Microsoft's MSN Gaming Zone.
