The free-to-play action shooter GunZ 2: The Second Duel is now available on Steam. At 5 PM PST February 17th 2014, GunZ 2 will be released as Early Access beta program, and MAIET will soon begin the commercial service with additional language supports.
Unlike the EU and Taiwanese versions, Steam version will have its own unique features such as VAC Support, Steam Trading Card, and Steam Achievements. Steam version will also offer new item system, 3 new PvP maps, new game mode, and a new character class.
At the official commercial release, Steam version will also support Steam's Friend system and Voice Chat system.
MAIET's CEO, Joongpil Cho (a.k.a Venister) said, "I am very excited to introduce the sequel title right when GunZ the Duel is having its 10th anniversary. Though we're nervous and excited to release and operate online game service on our own for the first time, it meant a great deal to us to prepare game service on Steam, America's biggest game publishing platform." He also added, "GunZ 2 for Steam will be world-wide service, with except of EU, China, and Taiwan; gamers in any region other than these 3 will be able to play. However, we will have to provide customer support for North and Latin America first, and then expand the customer service areas in the future."
