Soldier of Fortune Platinum

Soldier of Fortune 1 Platinum PC CD killer for hire profit combat shooter game! 






Like the late-2000 gold re-release of Soldier of Fortune, this platinum version of the violent anti-terrorist shooter contains the latest version of the game along with new maps, more missions, and enhancements for multiplayer sessions. Soldier of Fortune: Platinum also features a special preview of the game's sequel, Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix, available a few months after the late summer 2001 release of this refined version of the original.

For sale: One killing machine -- expert in the arts of torture, explosives and dismemberment. Price negotiable. Serious offers only, please. Have you ever considered a profession as a no-holds-barred, conscience-free killer? Based on the magazine of the same name, Soldier of Fortune is a first-person shooter created by Raven Software, the makers of Hexen. The story is simple: you are a covert soldier-for-hire. As a deadly, highly trained killer, you journey throughout the world to the most dangerous of places for a price.

From speeding freight trains in Africa to oil refineries in Iraq, you take on thirty deadly missions spanning five continents. Track your prey across the world to take down a fanatical terrorist organization before you or the world is destroyed. Some of the world's most lethal weaponry is highlighted, including the sniper rifle, white phosphorous grenade and a prototype microwave pulse gun. Combat realism was a focus with Hollywood-based company House of Moves providing motion-capture animation. Shoot an enemy in the leg, and he'll fall to the ground and writhe in pain. Shoot an enemy in the head, and he'll just slump to the ground like a rock in a pond.

Soldier of Fortune was not designed as a traditional "shoot-em-up" title, as covert operations are a must and immersing your character in various scenarios is necessary. Infiltrate enemy locations and blend in with characters that treat you like just another face -- until you blow your cover. Keeping your cool is necessary because when you cross the line and draw suspicion upon yourself, you'll be one man against an army.

For multi-player gamers, several modes of play are provided including the basic Deathmatch (kill all who move), Assassin (track and kill a pre-determined player while someone else hunts you) and Arsenal (race to be the first to kill opponents using each of your weapons). Finally, Soldier of Fortune utilizes a modified version of the Quake II engine and uses Raven Software's "GHOUL" rendering system that focuses on improved detail, faster gameplay and 3D graphics. The development team includes Project Lead and Creative Director Brian Raffel, co-founder of Raven Software, Eric Biessman, Project Coordinator for Hexen II, and Lead Programmer Rick Johnson, who worked in the same position on both Hexen II and Heretic II.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
