One game we have had our eyes on for quite some time now is the upcoming free-to-play combative shooter Ironsight. Recently, the game finished it closed technical beta phase and now and thankfully the open beta is set to go live on February 1, 2018.
So, just a few more weeks and the online shooter will be officially available for all shooter fans. Those owning a founder pack will already gain access to an exclusive pre-open beta phase as of January 30, 2018. Along with the long-awaited OBT, the Ironsight community can expect a broad range of new content and many extras. Four brand-new additional maps are waiting to be discovered by the players. Including a new game mode, a new mission, and more will be available.
Ironsight is set in 2025 and is all about the battle for the last natural resources on Earth. In a fierce conflict about ultimate supremacy, there are two rivaling factions battling it out: NAF (North Atlantic Forces) and EDEN (Energy Development Enterprise Networks). Through the programming of the in-house developed Iron Engine, developer Wiple Games created a realistic and intense gaming experience, focusing primarily on team play and tactical action. 10 different maps are planned for release, in which the teams can compete in several game modes, such as ‘Search & Destroy’, ‘Team Deathmatch’, ‘Secure Point’ and ‘Resource Takeover’. In the co-op mode, players can choose between the two modes ‘Mission: EMP’ and ‘AI Team Deathmatch’ to test and improve their own skills against the clever AI.
Each game round is time-limited, and teams must take over a variety of drones and controllable mechs. Strategic use of cluster bombs create ever-new combat situations which continuously challenge players of both parties. Destroyable surroundings and numerous possibilities of interaction round off this first-person shooter. Additionally, the shooter allows for players to customize and specialize their gameplay as they have access to 100 different weapon types, allowing them to specialize on their own, individual task within the team. Additional methods to personalize gameplay are available through purchasable weapons, attachments as well as a free customization of characters.
