Splash Damage, the UK-based studio known for the Enemy Territory games, and the less memorable Brink, has revealed their next upcoming title, a PC multiplayer shooter titled Dirty Bomb.
An official website dirtybombgame.com
has been launched, where you can reserve your player name, but no other details are outlined. A teaser trailer does tell us quite a lot about the game however, and you can watch that one below.
From the video, we can see that the game takes place in a futuristic London setting. Dirty Bomb also seemingly marks Splash Damage's first shooter departure away from id Software's engine technology, as the video features an Unreal Engine logo. This stands to reason, as the game is to be published by Splash Damage sister company publisher WarChest Games, and not Bethesda, as Brink was.
The other big presumption we can make is that the game will likely be free to play, given that WarChest's website
is plastered with the taglines "It'll be free", and "free games are coming", and CEO Paul Wedgewoods recent comments on their free-to-play philosophy.
