Aeria Games is adding another free-to-play RPG to their growing catalog: Repulse
. The game already has me interested because it's a scifi MMO, and as we all know the genre is dominated mostly by fantasy games and WoW rip-offs. Hopefully the closed beta will transition into open beta soon, as I'd like to see more of what this game is about. Who knows, it might be the game that finally gives me an MMO dependency.
New Sci-Fi FPS Repulse Enters Closed Beta Testing
Fast-Paced First Person Shooter Joins Aeria Games Catalog
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – January 6, 2012 – Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, announced today that Closed Beta testing has begun for Repulse, its newest sci-fi themed first person shooter (FPS) game.
In Repulse, players must create a soldier and enlist to help save the future of mankind by battling enemies in a variety of player-versus-player (PvP) and player-versus-environment (PvE) matches. The game’s fast-paced combat is fueled by an arsenal of futuristic weaponry and enhanced movement abilities. Matches take place across a diverse selection of engaging environments. Each map is strikingly rendered in crisp, 3D graphics and loaded with plenty of sniper hideouts, choke points and other twists designed to create an edge-of-your-seat shootout between players.
Repulse fires up the free-to-play FPS genre with these explosive features:
Thrilling Game Modes – Test your skills in nine action-packed game modes, each with a unique objective. From Capture the Flag to Death Match to Invasion, each game mode delivers non-stop blistering battlefield action.
Switch Classes – Cloak and assassinate enemies as the deadly Sniper; fire off high powered weaponry as the Assault class; heal your teammates as an Engineer. All classes can utilize the game’s signature Boost Jump move to claim victory! Each class possesses unique abilities, yet all are fully equipped for combat.
