Bethesda Announces BattleCry
Bethesda Softworks today announced BattleCry, a new multiplayer action combat game featuring fast-paced 32-player battles under development at BattleCry Studios.
Step into a world envisioned by Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2, Dishonored) where gun powder has been banned following a cataclysmic world war at the dawn of the 20th century. Traditional warfare is now a relic of the past and all conflicts are settled head-on by elite teams of chosen warriors in sanctioned WarZones. Trained and bred for battle they face off for the glory of their nations.
Choose your faction and progress your warrior through the ranks. Each rank unlocks new abilities and effects allowing strategic builds for your warrior on every level. Risk life and limb as the powerful Royal Marines or the fearless Cossacks in 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.
The beta for Battlecry is set to begin in 2015 for PC.
