Did we mention free to play?
Bethesda Softworks has finally revealed its next big project. No, it’s not Fallout 4 but a 32-player multiplayer action title developed by BattleCry studios called – oddly enough – BattleCry. This will be the studio’s first project and will be a free to play team-based competitive title. If that wasn’t enough, the art direction is being handled by Viktor Antonov of Half Life 2 and Dishonored fame.
In BattleCry, you’ll choose your own faction – the Royal Marines or the Cossacks – and choose your own abilities as you rank up. You’ll be able to use different weapons like swords that can transform into shields, electro-static blades and much more.
President and executive producer at BattleCry Studios Rich Vogel stated that, “The BattleCry team is happy to unveil the game that bears our studio’s name. We have been hard at work to create a fresh experience for gamers that brings together multiplayer action with visually stunning combat and are excited to share details about the game and have people play BattleCry in Bethesda’s booth at E3.”
BattleCry is set for a beta release in 2015. Thoughts? Tell us below.
