BattleCry – Bethesda announces new team PvP game from new studio

[Game website] Bethesda  recently announced a new team-based PvP  (and Free-to-Play) title, BattleCry, developed by its new team, BattleCry Studios. While it looked somewhat like a Team Fortress 2 clone at first, BattleCry is a somewhat bigger with a 32-man capacity.

 

Described as a “new breed of multiplayer”, BattleCry is set in a world where gunpowder is outlawed, it pits teams representing different countries against each other in enclosed warzones where international disputes are now resolved. Victory in the warzones translates into progression in a larger worldwide battle for supremacy being fought between the factions.

According to media reports, the inspiration for BattleCry came from titles such as Devil May Cry, God of War and Arkham Asylum, rather than MOBA games. BattleCry is still in development, and beta will only commence in 2015. I am not sure what to think of this game, but we shall see.
