S.C.S. - Dangerous Waters' Demo Screenshot

In conjunction with Gamespy and Strategy First we are excited to release a Multiplayer demo of S.C.S. Dangerous Waters to the masses. Here is a snippet from the press release:

MH-60R Mission
Saberhawk 51: Conduct an Area ASW search for Chinese Kilo class diesel submarines.

Players will command an MH-60R LAMPS helicopter attached to Helicopter Anti-Submarine Light Squadron 47 (HSL-47). A large international oil conglomerate has received permission from the United Nations to begin oil drilling in and around the Spratly Islands on the South China Sea. The Peoples Republic of China has vehemently opposed any efforts to drill in the Spratly Islands. Your mission is to ensure both cargo ships cross the "goal line." Other U.N. member nations will then escort the ships to the Spratly Islands.

Kilo mission
SS368: Intercept and sink the cargo ships transporting oil drilling equipment to the Spratly Islands.

The Peoples Republic of China has claimed the Spratly Islands as sovereign territory and opposes any drilling by foreigners. As the Commanding Officer of a Kilo class submarine in the Natuna Straits, you are ordered to intercept and sink the SS Gisela Tide and the SS Robik Cossara. Your primary mission is to sink the cargo ships carrying the drilling equipment before they cross the goal line and are escorted by an even stronger naval contingent.

With the addition of GameSpy Arcade support, “S.C.S. – Dangerous Waters™” includes standard multi-player and multi-station functionality. Thus, players will be able to compete against each other or collaborate as a team. When utilizing “multi-station” mode in multi-player, up to 30 players can team up and operate individual crew stations on the SAME platform to achieve mission objectives.

We encourage you to DOWNLOAD the demo directly from Strategy First and if you have any questions about the demo feel free to discuss it in our forums.
