Founded by team members who worked on PC online games such as Closers and Elsword, studiobside is a new Korean developer which recently teased its first project, Counter Side. Described as a “strategy action RPG” and “urban fantasy RPG,” Counter Side tells the story of “Watch Counters” who are tasked to fight against an unknown organism known as “Erosions.” A new natural resource known as “Eternium” is also key to the overall storyline.
Interestingly, it seems that Counter Side is actually a strategy game, as players take on the mantle of the president of a new private military company. It says that “action plays can be directed according to the player’s strategy instead of the usual complicated manipulation, and it is possible to enjoy various strategies according to the character combination via real-time PVP.” Counter Side will also feature full Live 2D graphics. Stay tuned for updates!
