Sunset Announcement

Space has always been a dangerous place and those who explored it and lived it always knew there might come a time when they would not return. It is with heavy heart that we announce the shut down of Silent Death on December 7, 2001. Those of us who had a hand in the creation, production and support of the game will miss the players and friends of Silent Death. Pilots of Silent Death, we salute you!

Until the close of the game, if you need support for this product, please use the Game Support link on the game’s web page to access our searchable database of Frequently Asked Questions and their answers. The message boards for Silent Death will remain open for one week after the game closes. Please join us in saying your farewells.

There had been a previous report that Silent Death would shut-down during a transition from America Online to Electronic Arts, but this press release makes the shut-down sound permanent.

Silent Death, second edition

Silent Death Online was based on the Silent Death miniatures game.
