Battleswarm: Field of Honor
has announced a new free item giveaway and tournament, coming up this weekend. To tell you the truth, I've never actually heard of this game. But after reading up about it on the main Battleswarm site, I've got to tell you, this game sounds amazing. I don't think I've ever heard of such an interesting way to play a game.
Here's how Battleswarm works: It's free to play, and all you have to do is make an account. So, after downloading the game, you pick your side, and here's where the interesting part comes in: depending on the side you choose, between the bugs or the human commandos, your whole experience will be compeltely different. If you choose the bugs, you will fight other players around the world who are the humans, and vice-versa, and you will play the game like any other real-time strategy game. But if you're humans, you will play in an entirely different way. You get to play the game in first-person shooter format! Pretty cool, huh? If you're interested, just click here
, and you'll be taken to the official site, where you can learn more, make an account, and play!

Developed by Gameworld Tech Co, LTD, Battleswarm pits first-person shooters (FPS) against real-time strategy (RTS) players in a single genre-busting online PC game. Players can either engage in tactical, first-person combat as a Human soldier or command hundreds of alien bugs as the Bug Commander. Human players attempt to use superior firepower and team-based tactics to outsmart the Bug players, who are playing the game as a real time strategy game.
