Bethesda has announced BattleCry, the debut title from BattleCry Studios, along with the first trailer ahead of a full E3 2014 reveal.
BattleCry is multiplayer-only online action combat game featuring support for up to 32 players, with team-based combat and competitive multiplayer set in a stunningly realised new cataclysmic world....
BattleCry's artistic vision is from Viktor Antonov, the same creative mind that brought you Half-Life 2 and Dishonored, set in a world where gunpowder has been outlawed following a huge cataclysmic world war. Teams of warriors now square off against each in fights to the death for the glory of their nations.
Battles are waged inside predesigned arenas and sanctioned WarZones, allowing players to progress their characters through additional ranks to gain new abilities in order to create a unique build.
With the ban on gunpowder in place the weapons on offer in BattleCry are certainly unique, including a shield capable of transforming into a sword, electrocuting arrows, and high-powered static blades.
Check out the first screens and cinematic trailer below…
BattleCry is set to arrive in 2015 for PC, with a beta due to be announced before then for F2P title.
