FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BUSAN, South Korea - Cmune Ltd. announced at
G-Star 2010, South Korea's biggest game trade show, the launch of
UberStrike, the world’s first cross-platform free-to-play
first person shooter. UberStrike is available for both Mac and PC
on Facebook, Cmune's own portal and soon MySpace, Apple Widget, and
as a HD client. It is the first and largest first person shooter
built using the Unity game engine.
"It is the dawn of a new era for FPS games where the action is
just a click away, directly in your favorite social platform,
enabling you to connect and play instantly with your friends. We
found that a large number of users had interests beyond farming,
pet breeding and aquariums, so we set out to offer them a dose of
Shaun Lelacheur Sales, Co-Founder of Cmune and Lead
Designer of UberStrike.
In UberStrike, players battle it out across all major social
networks with players from every continent. During its open beta,
the game registered over 1,000,000 visitors across its various
channels and keeps growing at a fast pace.
“First-person shooters are a multi-billion dollar genre
and totally untapped inside social platforms. No need for a
console, a powered-up PC, or buying anything, we offer all the epic
action you can take directly where you are.” says
Ludovic Bodin, Co-Founder and CEO of Cmune.
The UberStrike community culture has been maturing since the
alpha launch and its active membership organizes and moderates
itself around a shared spirit of fun and action. Here are some of
the things they have to say about UberStrike:
“…never played a FPS this good in a browser.”
“I play UberStrike for the uberness of the game, the fans,
and the smackdown you can unleash on someone!” –
“It's free, it's fun and it's awesome. There are heaps of
community members willing to give you virtual cookies. What more
could you ask for?” –
“I will not stop playing this until I'm dead. It's action
packed with real people. You have to play it if you want to be Uber
like the rest of us!” –
· Dozens of sick
weapons, including huge guns like the Force Cannon and the Battle
Snake, deadly sniper rifles like the Vanquisher and the Particle
Lance, and gruesome melee weapons such as UberHammer and the Mythic
Edge to show others who’s boss.
· Varied maps to fit
· Friendly community,
tournaments and beastly clans.
· Over 10 million
gear combinations to personalize your character and new items
introduced at neck-breaking pace.
· Multi-access via
Facebook, MySpace, Apple Widgets, Portal and HD client download.
Yes, in the browser and on your Mac too.
