It seems like we’re entering the age of the Massive scale FPS. For years, the MMORPG has dominated the world of multiplayer gaming but now, we’re getting more and more first person shooter MMO’s and they are looking more and more refined, all the time.
It started a while back with the release of Planetside. After that was World War II online and then several other came along. Recently we’ve had Planetside 2 release from Sony Online Entertainment, Defiance from Trion Worlds will be releasing soon and now Square Enix has announced the open beta of Heroes and Generals; a WWII based FPS that’s looking SUPER HOT.
And we have a trailer!
Here’s a little tidbit from the folks over at Square:
Heroes & Generals is a new Free2Play Massive Online FPS with a Strategic Multiplayer Campaign, set in the midst of World War II Europe, where Axis and Allies fight for control. The game uniquely merges epic first-person shooter action with a rich strategic layer, where your decisions have the power to turn the tide in a battle among thousands of online players. Players can choose to play as ‘Heroes’, fighting in the trenches, flying planes, commandeering tanks and other vehicles, or take control of the Battlefield as ‘Generals’, determining the strategic direction of the war and supporting fellow players by managing battlefield assets, army units and reinforcements.
Sure, sure, it all sounds really nice, but what’s the game look like? It looks HOT, that’s what it looks like. Check out the gameplay trailer below and get ready to have yourself a new online FPS.
