Jagex Game Studios new multiple shooter, "Block N Load", has now moved fully into its closed beta. The game will be coming to PC’s in early 2015 with plans to launch it via steam included. Through a select few partners, as well as the "Block N Load" website you can get your hands on a play test key and jump into the build, bombing, shooting action.
"Block N Load" is a 5v5 online first-person shooter. You choose your hero, select your blocks, and fight it out with your opponents in highly destructible arenas. It’s all about destroying your opponent’s generator cubes and in turn protecting yours. To claim victory you’ll need to have great teamwork, great shooting and a great defence. You’ll build walls, buildings, turrets and traps to aid you but victory will ultimately come from your ability to work and succeed as a team.
Building and blocks are as powerful as bullets and smarts are as important as shooter skills.
• Ever-evolving battlefields in every match, as players shoot and build towards enemy positions, meaning no game is the same
• Diverse heroes offer a strong mix of roles for full combat, defensive and supportive team strategies, meaning there is a role for all types of gamers
• Every game has a blend of intelligent and creative tactics, fused with strategic shooter action where
We’ve had huge interest in Block N Load since we announced the game just a few weeks ago, so it’s great to be able to confirm that it has now reached the important closed beta milestone, For this we’re going to distribute a substantial number of keys directly and through partners, and are looking forward to receiving player feedback as they get involved with our range of madcap heroes, such as Doctor Eliza, Cogwheel, Sarge, as well as all the other blockheads.David Solari
