While other game companies are solely focused on mobile games in Japan, Square Enix has managed to diversify by launching several online PC titles. After Lord of Vermilion: Arena, Gunsligner Stratos: Reloaded is slated to enter Open Beta on 6 August. A Pre-Open Beta phase will take place from 1 August to 2 August, though only for players who signup now. There is no word on an English launch.
Based on Square Enix’s popular arcade game, and recently had an anime series running, Gunslinger Stratos: Reload is a PVP third-person shooter at its core. Featuring 4 vs 4 matches, characters are not limited to just shooting on the ground, but able to perform near-impossible feats like shooting while air borne, or even when flying. New characters and maps will be added on a regular basis.
