En Masse Entertainment, a player-driven publisher focused on delivering fun and innovative online games, today announced the intense third person shooter, Zombies Monsters Robots (ZMR), for PC. Set in an alternate world where the invention of portal technology has lured cross-dimensional creatures to Earth and humanity finds itself under attack, ZMR pits gamers against a bevy of hostile foes. Players will fight back with guns, guts, and gear for an edge-of-the-seat, take-no-prisoners shooter experience. Currently in development from Yingpei Games, formerly known as Epic Games China, ZMR will launch free-to-play on PC this summer.
PC shooter fans looking for a new twist on online multiplayer games are certain to find it this summer in Mercenary Ops. The new title combines the best of the tactical gameplay elements from conventional third-person shooters with the fast-paced competitive and cooperative team matches found in online multiplayer titles – and adds to the mix a deeper layer of character development and customization.
“In a third-person shooter, the online multiplayer aspect of the game always seems to be an after-thought to the single-player experience,” said Mercenary Ops Producer, Jason Sharp. “Because of this, we decided to concentrate on creating an entirely different online experience by looking at every facet of game design from that perspective. This decision resulted in a unique style of play that enhanced traditional tactical combat by requiring players to have a quicker, more aggressive attitude.”
Like other third-person shooters, Mercenary Ops implements cover-based mechanics and an active reload system as the foundation of the game’s design. Along with these familiar gameplay elements, the developers added the precise control and aiming abilities found only on the PC. In addition, the game was enhanced by adding destructible cover, an encumbrance system and maps designed with multiple threat vectors to shake up the stop-and-pop gameplay often found in third-person shooters.
