"You're the world's deadliest soldier, a precise and efficient killing machine that the military denies all knowledge of. Departing from the military, your services become the tools of survival as the ultimate hired mercenary, where you now take orders from secret government agencies that they consider too hot to handle. The elusive world of covert operations and guerilla warfare are at your feet--do you have what it takes to be Soldier of Fortune?"

"Soldier of Fortune (SoF) is a fast-paced, first person action-shooter based on the popular mercenary magazine of the same name. SoF runs on Raven's modified Quake II engine, and with thanks to the porting efforts of Loki Entertainment Software, SoF is now available to the Linux community."

"The story of SoF goes a little something like this: you take on the role of John Mullins, an ex-elite soldier who served three tours of Vietnam. Retiring from the military, Mullins moved into the "mercenary-for-hire" business with a few wartime buddies, taking orders from the U.N. anti-terrorist group known only as "The Shop."
