SANTA CLARA, Calif. – May. 21, 2012 – Load your guns, strap on your holster, and get ready to show off your best action movie one-liners. Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, announced today that closed beta registration has begun for Born to Fire, a gritty new massively multiplayer online first-person shooter (MMOFPS). Whether it’s a suave agent with a license to kill, a take-no-prisoners tough guy, or an elite Special Forces operative, Born to Fire’s character-driven gameplay is designed to suit any player’s style.
Following the Cold War, the Russian Federation has lost ground in an arms race with the United States and turned to more unconventional methods of warfare. As the rules of engagement are thrown out the window, Special Forces around the world are sucked into the fray of a chaotic, anything-goes political landscape. The fate of these elite troops, and the interests they represent, is in the players’ hands as they step into a global free-fire zone.
Players can choose to lock-and-load as a Duelist, Heavy-Hitter, Rifleman, Warden, or Ranger as they battle for domination. Each class comes with its own distinctive backstory, unique tactics, and a diverse arsenal that is fully customizable. Varied maps and modes encourage innovative team strategies in unique PvP warfare. Fast, one-click matchmaking offers players an optimized way to battle it out, while built-in replay tools enable players to improve their game by studying their own moves alongside those of fellow combatants.
“In Born to Fire, players step in the boots of five distinct classes of elite operatives engaged in a global firefight for domination,” said Tom Nichols, Director of Publishing at Aeria Games. “With the instant gratification of one-click matchmaking and the in-depth analysis provided by elaborate replay tools, Born to Fire represents a new class of character-driven, highly customizable MMOFPS that’s easy to get into but nearly impossible to fully master.”
Born to Fire will require a client download, and as with all Aeria Games titles, will be free-to-play. Interested players can learn more and sign up to participate in the upcoming closed beta test at http://borntofire.aeriagames.com. Players who ‘Like’ the Facebook page will stay informed of the latest news, updates, and contests as the game nears its official launch.
