Cmune Launches UberStrike, Facebook's First Free-to-Play
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 adrenaline." says 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:
