BETHESDA SOFTWORKS ANNOUNCES BATTLECRY

Fight for Power and Glory in BattleCry Studios’ 32-Player Online Team Action Game


May 28, 2014 (London, UK) — Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced BATTLECRY™, an all-new multiplayer action combat game featuring fast-paced and frenetic 32-player battles under development at BattleCry Studios.

BATTLECRY is the first project for the studio since it was formed in 2012 with one goal: to create fun, high-quality online experiences for a connected world. Led by long-time industry veteran Rich Vogel, the team at BattleCry Studios is comprised of seasoned developers with decades of experience working on critically-acclaimed action and competitive multiplayer franchises. Together they have created BATTLECRY – a fun and accessible free-to-play game that amplifies team-based combat by combining visceral brutality, striking art direction and competitive multiplayer action to create a refreshingly new gameplay experience.

Step into a bold, expressive world envisioned by Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2, Dishonored) where gun powder has been banned following a cataclysmic world war at the dawn of the 20th century. Traditional warfare is now a relic of the past and all conflicts are settled head-on by elite teams of chosen warriors in sanctioned WarZones. Trained and bred for battle they face off for the glory of their nations.

Choose your faction and progress your warrior through the ranks. Each rank unlocks new abilities and effects allowing deep strategic builds for your warrior on every level. Risk life and limb as the powerful Royal Marines or the fearless Cossacks in imaginative WarZones each designed to combine positioning, spacing and verticality to redefine your core combat experience. Fight with transformative melee and ranged weapons that harness iron and energy and eviscerate your opponents with swords that transform into shields, bows that can punch an arrow straight through an armored skull or electrocute your foes with high powered blades crackling with electro-static energy.

"The BattleCry team is happy to unveil the game that bears our studio’s name," said Rich Vogel, president and executive producer at BattleCry Studios. "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.”

The official announcement trailer can be seen today on BATTLECRY’s official site: www.battlecrythegame.com.
The beta for BATTLECRY is set to begin in 2015 for PC.

Free-to-play huh? This game wont even grace the presence of my hard drive. Sad thing is I actually think it looks good. But I stand by what I say and haven't downloaded one Free-to-play on my pc yet.

Sucks for you. Free to play games can still be good. In fact you could argue some of the absolute best competitive multiplayer games out there are free to play. Team Fortress, Dota 2, etc.
F2P isn't inherently bad, even if it often is damaging to perfectly good properties, or stuck onto crappy properties to try and get any amount of money back on the project. But there are exceptions, and supporting the good ones will only help better practices for the model.

I'm sorta anti-F2P but you're missing out if you disregard it all together. There are some very good F2P games. Hell.. I'd even call some of them consumer friendly!

Soo... what is this? MOBA?
