It has been a few weeks since I played any China games, and I decided to revisit a game which is currently still in the Alpha phase. This is one of the rare China online games I managed to get, mind you. My luck with Tencent Games is quite awesome these days, with another 2 Alpha keys snagged for other games. Ok, back to topic. Originally known as TGame, Assault Fire is developed using the Unreal 3 Engine and is a online shooter (MMOFPS) with some PvE content as well as various PvP modes.
I actually played the game a few months back, but I realized I did not do any post on it. So, the most fun mode for me in Assault Fire is no doubt the one killing cyborgs AI while trapped inside a room with 3 other players. There are different difficulty modes as well, with monsters increasing in numbers and new ones emerging upon reaching higher levels. I blame my latency for being able to clear the mode only once before. And I really suck at playing against human players. No, really, 200+ ping is not something to joke about 🙁 *finding excuses*
Other modes now includes the usual Team Death Match, Capture the Flag, Free Kill and Sniper War. However, with the official Closed Beta phase coming up, more interesting modes will be added. These includes the Mecha Wars, where one side of the players will be able to ride Mechas, while the other side is given stronger weapons to counter. Mechas have their own abilities to fly as well.
Another new mode will be the Tank Wars, where players can choose to hop in various different tank and helicopter models and control them in first person mode. Players who are uncomfortable are also able to switch to a third person mode, becoming sort of like World of Tanks in view. Finally, the Cyborg War mode will change one side of the players into Cyborgs.
The Closed Beta date is still not announced as of now, so stay tuned for more information. I am now off testing Tencent Games’ other MMOFPS, War of Zombie which is in Alpha phase as well. Look out for some game footage soon!
