Based on the hugely popular Crossfire universe, the game pits player against player as rival factions battle for global domination.
Going into early access will allow players, across the world, to experience a true modern day action RTS – with a historical nod to the original games that defined the genre – allowing them to shape and define the game; from game modes to maps and units.
The game is being developed by Canadian developers Blackbird Interactive. Maurice Grela (Game Designer) said community and player feedback was a key element on how they wanted the game to shape up.
“RTS gamers know what they want and what a modern-day game should deliver. Who better to make sure that we are in synch?”
“We are offering all fans of the genre the chance to be involved in how we grow the game. We have some great features and game modes to reveal to you over the next months and look to add a wealth of content as we enter early access”.
The developers have also unveiled a roadmap outlining all the upcoming activities ahead of the early access launch, including a new third faction.
Players who would like to get into the action can do so by signing up for the chance to join the Technical Test where they have the opportunity to choose from one of two factions – Blacklist or Global Risk – along with the respective commander. They’ll then be able to battle it out across two very diverse maps in either 1v1 or 3v3 multiplayer.
