BattleCry – Bethesda reveals new gameplay video for E3 2015

[Beta register] Bethesda just had its E3 2015 conference, and a new game trailer was revealed for its Free-to-Play shooter, BattleCry. First announced last year, players choose from 15 warriors, 3 factions and 5 classes during the beta (more coming), and engage in 24-player large battles or smaller 12-player team battles across the WarZones. Strategy and weapons are both keys to victory!


Key Features:

Three Factions Vying for Dominance

Open wars are a thing of the past and brave warriors put their lives on the line in imaginative WarZones to maintain peace. Choose from the disciplined Imperial Marines, the fearless Cossack Empire, and the prestigious Han Republic. Take on the role of one of these elite warriors and engage in brutal, high-action, 12 v 12 and 6 v 6 player battles in a variety of gameplay modes and maps.

Five Fully Customizable Warrior Classes

Progress by earning iron and advancing through the ranks. Each rank unlocks new abilities and effects. Select from classes such as the Enforcer, who wields a massive sword that effortlessly slices his opponents in two; the Ranger who unleashes a maelstrom of arrows from afar; or the Infiltrator, using blinding speed and stealth abilities to pick off unsuspecting enemies in isolation.

Risk Life and Limb

Each WarZone is designed to combine positioning and spacing to redefine combat experience. Fight with transformative weapons that harness iron and energy and eviscerate your opponents with swords that transform into shields, bows that can punch an arrow straight through an armored skull, or electrocute your foes with high powered blades crackling with electro-static energy.

The Last Moments of your Life in Striking Detail

Witness immersive environments through third-person cameras as players fight towards life or death. The bold, expressive art style designed by Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2, Dishonored) supplements the visceral combat and heightens the gameplay experience. Inspired by comic books, BattleCry’s highly-stylized environments change depending on the circumstances of the fight.
