  Frozen Endzone public beta out now!

THURSDAY 5 DECEMBER, 2013 -- Robots gathered on a randomly generated playing field today to throw a ball around and generally beat the living crap out of each other.

Such chaotic scenes can only mean one thing: Frozen Endzone, the premier tactical future sport game, has finally entered its exclusive public beta!

The next release from Mode 7 Games - creators of the award-winning and acclaimed Frozen Synapse - Frozen Endzone is a simultaneous-turn-based game of tactics and tremendously aggressive robots.

The attacking player must attempt to get the ball in their opponent’s endzone, or into a midzone in the middle of the field, in order to score points. Naturally, the defending player’s goal is to stop this from happening.

With the full game slated for release in late 2014, Frozen Endzone’s beta is now live - giving anyone who pre-orders the game instant access to a work-in-progress version. Of course, they’ll also receive a copy of the full version upon release, plus a free copy to give to a friend.

A variety of pre-order options are available - and people can head to for more details on the different tiers.

“Frozen Endzone is a hugely ambitious game for us,” said Paul Taylor, co-managing director of Mode 7.

“We wanted to make a simultaneous-turn-based game that translates your actions into ridiculously exciting cinematic outcomes. That somewhat overly specific dream is now coming together!”

Indie studio Mode 7 will use cash generated from the beta to help fund the remainder of development as they work towards the game’s completion next year.

The beta was supposed to launch last month, but didn’t because of reasons.
