Industry Veterans Developing F2P FPS Title “Offensive Combat”
Take industry veterans from Activision, Microsoft, and Sony, add equal quantities of triple-A and free-to-play, and blend for 30 seconds. What do you get? Developer U4iA, which is working on the F2P FPS “Offensive Combat.” Which is much preferable to Defensive Combat, or Respectful Combat.
The game‘s rundown reads:
Offensive Combat will feature the most competitive multiplayer action ever seen within a browser, enabling players to harness their skills and use their creativity and ingenuity to win the ultimate mash-up of first-person shooters. The browser version and the mobile/tablet versions of the game are interconnected, and work together unlike any game before. The full Offensive Combat experience will be detailed in the coming weeks.
The innovative gameplay, guided by industry veterans from Activision, Sony, and the Call of Duty and Guitar Hero franchises, will feature an irreverent mash-up of first-person-shooter archetypes, weapons and themes, including surreal fantasy, futuristic sci-fi, and modern military settings, among others. Offensive Combat launches later this year, but select fans will have an opportunity to be one of the first to explore the game during a limited beta this summer.
“The most competitive multiplayer action ever seen within a browser” — that’s a bold claim, given Quake Live sparks some fierce competition. But Offensive Combat looks crazy enough to take on the veteran arena shooter.
