Bethesda Softworks have earlier today announced a brand new multiplayer team action combat game titled BATTLECRY. This is the very first project from the development team at BattleCry Studios, with the aim to produce a a fun and accessible free-to-play game that amplifies team-based combat by combining visceral brutality, striking art direction and competitive 32-person multiplayer action to create a refreshingly new gameplay experience.
BATTLECRY takes place in a world where gun powder has been banned following a cataclysmic world war at the dawn of the 20th century. Traditional warfare is nothing but a relic from the past, with all conflicts being settled head-on by elite teams of chosen warriors in dedicated ‘WarZones’. Trained and bred for battle, they face off for the glory of their nations. You, as one of these chosen warriors get to choose your faction and progress through the ranks.
Each rank unlocks new abilities and effects allowing deep strategic builds for your warrior on every level. Risk life and limb as the powerful Royal Marines or the fearless Cossacks in imaginative WarZones each designed to combine positioning, spacing and verticality to redefine your core combat experience. Fight with transformative melee and ranged weapons that harness iron and energy and eviscerate your opponents with swords that transform into shields, bows that can punch an arrow straight through an armored skull or electrocute your foes with high powered blades crackling with electro-static energy.
