KARLSRUHE, GERMANY, JUNE 5 2018 | Gameforge — leading western publisher of popular free-to-play multiplayer online games such as SoulWorker, TERA and Metin2 — is excited to announce that Japanese game developer Soleil’s rowdy third-person shooter RockShot is now available on Steam Early Access in North America and Europe.
Anarchy reigns supreme in this strategic shooter where players rock and roll their way to victory in high-adrenaline competitive multiplayer firefights. Players must prepare to squad up, defend their home turf and commit acts of stylish violence. The world of RockShot has been shattered by an orbital collision, and the only ones left alive are ruffians, rockers and degenerates. Supremacy is the number one goal in RockShot, so teamwork is essential.
RockShot Key Features:
Raid enemy bases: Forge a team of punks and renegades to attack enemy bases together in RAID-mode, or design your own bases and defend them tooth and nail against assaults. Give your enemies an explosive welcome!
Territory control: Coordinate your attacks to strategically dismantle the opposition and expand your territories.
Deep base-building: Hop into an intuitive base-builder to carefully construct your domain. Add structures, defenses, and more, upgrading it piece by piece as you acquire resources.
Melee-based ultra-violence: Perfect your melee combos using your favorite toys from a wide range of weaponry, including katanas and “Flying Vanguard” electric guitars.
Strong customization: Earned resources can be invested in a powerful arsenal to keep the enemy at bay — from standard issue firearms and machine guns to earth-shattering airstrikes that can quickly turn the tide of battle. Express your wild side with unlockable outfits as well!
In addition to RAID-mode, players can cut their teeth and earn experience in various PvP and PvE game modes — some familiar to old-school shooter fans, others more eccentric — that will be rotated in every few weeks. Launch game modes will also include Team Deathmatch and Free4-All. RockShot’s first timed special event will unite players to survive an invasion of mutant experiments in Chimera-Mode.
Gameforge and Soleil have worked towards the Steam Early Access release of RockShot since mid-2017, aiming to bring a classically-inspired but gung-ho third-person shooter to gamers itching to cause mayhem with their friends. Soleil’s team of talented creators were behind numerous popular action-packed game series such as Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, as well as the upcoming NARUTO TO BORUTO: SHINOBI STRIKER. RockShot will initially be released in English and German, with further languages planned post-launch.
RockShot is available as a free download for Windows PC on Steam at http://playrockshot.com. The first of several introductory onboarding videos for new players is available on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maUQwU9qR7A.
