Three Gates and SlapShot Games are Getting Ready for Beta Testers
SlapShot Games and Three Gates today announced that Offensive Combat Redux!™ is coming to Steam, the world’s largest digital distribution for PC Games, this summer. The game will begin external beta testing in the coming weeks as many upgrades to the original game are in progress.
The external beta testing phase will primarily help ensure that the gameplay and weapons are balanced, the maps run smoothly on low-end and high-end PCs, and the game is fun. The companies are looking for a mix of players from those familiar with the original Offensive Combat game, and those just interested in FPS games that have never played OC. Those interested can sign-up to be considered at: www.offensivecombat.com .
“Getting approved to be on Steam is a major milestone in getting a game out to the massive PC audience these days,” said Don Geyer, CEO of Three Gates AB. “The original Offensive Combat never made it to the platform, so it’s a real opportunity for Offensive Combat Redux! to reach a large audience if the Steam community embraces it like we hope they will.”
Offensive Combat Redux! is an irreverent, take-no-prisoners online FPS, with a variety of maps built for fast gameplay and varied play styles. The original game was free-to-play and featured numerous paid upgrades and accelerators that made the game progress quickly to the top levels with a wide variety of weapons in the game. Offensive Combat Redux! is building upon the great gameplay and familiar maps and bringing the game to a new audience. With dozens of weapons and pwns for showing up your opponent, Offensive Combat Redux! is a unique game amongst FPS titles.
“We love Steam and knowing that OCR will be available on the platform this summer is awesome,” said MegaMouth, the in-game persona of SlapShot Games’ CEO. “Now our focus is on making sure the community is involved in the game and we deliver a really fun experience.”
