From the here's-something-you-don't-see-everyday files, Obsidian
-- known primarily for its roleplaying games -- is lending its name to a new MMO shooter thing called Armored Warfare
. The game's website bills it as "a new free-to-play massively multiplayer online tactical military video game that puts you in control of some of the most incredible, modern destructive machines to grace a battlefield."
that Armored Warfare
may be an extension of Obsidian's deal with Russian megapublisher Mail.Ru
, which also includes the Skyforge
partnership wherein the former company lent its name and its expertise to the Allods Team's latest sci-fantasy MMO project.
In any case, you can watch the World of Tanks
-style Armored Warfare
announcement trailer after the cut.
