Starbreeze Studios Announces New F2P Shooter “Cold Mercury”
According to GI.biz, Swedish developers Starbreeze are dipping their toes into the churning, blood-stained waters of “freemium” shooters. New project Cold Mercury is little more than a grainy screenshot (seen above) at this early stage, but the studio has a strong track record thanks to games like Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay and The Darkness, even if we didn’t love Syndicate, their latest offering (despite some clever touches).
Cold Mercury will no doubt be “free to play, not play to win” — freemium distribution has its own distinctive disclaimer. It can also guarantee the availability of hilariously oversized chainguns. We’ll keep you informed as soon as more information becomes available.
