The game is set in famous locations around London such as Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Westminster, St. Paul’s and King’s Cross St. Pancras.
The game features an array of traditional FPS game modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture The Flag. The game also has innovative new modes such as Sniper vs Sniper, Sniper Team vs Sniper Team and Against All Odds.
