You know, I was hesitating whether to use “Battery” or “BATTERY”, but I am personally not used to seeing everything in capital letters, so do bear with me. The game went into Open Beta on 11th December, and just after nearly a week, has announced the start of commercial service on the 17th. Originally developed by the team from NHN Games, it is now under the management of Webzen. If you did not know, NHN Games was sold to Webzen a few months ago (NHN Games and Corp are 2 different entities).
Developed using the Unreal 2.5 Engine, Battery takes place in a world where natural resources are depleted, with various factions fighting over control of them. As there are scenes showing… bodies being blown off, blood and gores etc, the game is listed as M-18. Sounds pretty much like Soldier of Fortune Online, but of course each has their own different maps and modes.
The English version (with apparently a different storyline), most probably the global server, is currently poised for a release in 2011, with the game already being teased here.
