LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/FinalStrikeGames?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#FinalStrikeGameslt;/agt;–Nexon
America, in partnership with veteran-led development studio, Final
Strike Games, is bringing its brand new first-person multiplayer
Arena to closed beta on PC. The beta will occur from May 23
to May 29 via the Nexon Launcher and Steam. Players can sign up for a
chance to blast off this exclusive round of beta testing here.
Rocket Arena brings a unique 3-on-3 cross-platform experience
to the first-person shooter genre and features a roster of vibrant
characters competing in quick 5-minute matches in the Rocket
Championship Tour. Set in the curious World of Crater, Rocket Arena
introduces special gameplay mechanics distinct from standard shooters,
reveling in a host of colorful weapons and abilities that utilize
fanciful rockets in imaginative forms.
In Rocket Arena, players are equipped with a blast meter that
increases as they are blasted by rockets. As the meter reaches its
critical point, players become susceptible to being knocked out of the
map, but will quickly return to the stage to stay in the action. With
dedicated matchmaking functionality, servers account for skill level and
latency when pairing players together. Rocket Arena will be
available for cross-platform play on PC and Xbox
One at launch, with PlayStation 4
currently in development.
“We developed Rocket Arena with high-quality gameplay mechanics,
superb controls, and the network code required of an online FPS. Rocket
Arena is an intricate shooter at its core, complete with a marvelous
world, colorful characters, and ridiculous rockets,” said Kevin
Franklin, Founder/CEO of Final Strike Games. “Nexon shared our vision
for Rocket Arena and provided the resources and expertise to
realize our goal. The result is a game that our team is exceptionally
proud of, and look forward to playing every day.”
The closed beta period features a selection of six maps, four game
modes, and six characters. Players participating in the beta will also
be able to earn cosmetic rewards to use in the release version of Rocket
Arena. More information about closed beta rewards can be found here.
