TACTICAL MILITARY MMO GAME ARMORED WARFARE FOR PC IN 2014
Award Winning Studio Brings Team-based Modern Military Vehicular Combat
in a Free-to-compete Online Experience
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif - March 20, 2014 – Obsidian Entertainment and My.com, the subsidiary of Mail.Ru Group, the largest Internet company in Russian-speaking countries, today revealed Armored Warfare, a massively multiplayer online tactical military video game. Armored Warfare features stunning next-gen visuals, dynamic destructible environments, customizable vehicles and intense team-based gameplay where players work to crush each other with the power of modern combat vehicles in a free-to-compete experience.
"Armored Warfare gives players two deep levels of upgrading and progression through a huge array of both military vehicles and their own personal military base. Each giving players a diverse and wide-ranging path of strategies," said Richard Taylor, Project Director of Obsidian Entertainment. "We are incredibly excited to bring Armored Warfare to players around the world, so they can enjoy the strategic and destructive potential of modern fighting vehicles."
In Armored Warfare, players will take on the role of private military contractors who are called into action throughout a modern virtual world. Overseeing their own personal command base, players will expand, enhance, and customize their headquarters, manage and upgrade their military convoy of vehicles, and train and develop their crews through a robust reputation and experience system. Dynamic environments in Armored Warfare require players to change strategies on the battlefield at a moment's notice keeping them ever vigilant to the tides of battle.
A variety of team-based tactical and competitive gameplay modes in Armored Warfare will not only test the mettle of players in PvP, but will have them pulling together group strategies in order to overcome grueling player-versus-environment (PvE) scenarios. Players will also be able to join Clans and participate in large scale Territory Wars in the power struggle for world domination. Armored Warfare will continue to be updated and supported for years to come with new weapons, vehicles, base elements, and battle modes.
Armored Warfare will launch into closed beta in 2014 for PC.
