Dirty Bomb will finally enter its open beta phase next week on June 2nd, which is an open invite for everyone to jump in and start playing dirty with all the bombs the game gives you. Oh, and Aussie servers will be up and running at launch, too.
“Dirty Bomb takes us back to our roots as a company dedicated to making competitive multiplayer shooters for hardcore gamers,” said Paul Wedgwood, CEO of Splash Damage. “Twenty years ago I played obsessively in a clan, competed in tournaments, made a mod for Quake 3, and as a result, founded Splash Damage with clan mates and friends. We’re grateful to have Dirty Bomb shaped by our players from an early alpha stage - With their dedication and feedback, along with the support from Nexon America, we think we’ve created something special.”
Dirty Bomb is a return to the classic FPS PC feel with frenetic run ‘n gun action built for players with an appetite for heated competition, and the first in a new generation of games published by Nexon America. Free-to-play, and more importantly, free-to-win, Dirty Bomb is a unique asymmetrical team-based game in which players will select from a diverse group of Mercenaries, each with their own shining personalities, assorted talents and super-cool weapons, to create specialized squads to take into the fray on a quest for riches and bragging rights. From launch Dirty Bomb will support dedicated Australian servers, ensuring that Aussies players with quick trigger fingers will not beholden to high pings, just their own abilities.
There's a recently new behind-the-scenes video showcasing all you need to know about the game in case you've avoided it up until now, which you can watch below.
