Korean publisher Neowiz Games teases the upcoming Beta launch of the new f2p FPS Black Squad with this gameplay trailer. The shooter is set to enter Closed Beta later this summer in Korea.
Black Squad is the latest project of NS Studio, a former subsidiary company of Neowiz Games. The shooter was previously titled as Viper Circle and went through a massive overhaul and complete change of concept last year.
After watching this trailer I was fairly unimpressed, and I am not sure if this was one of the smartest promotional activities to release a 42-seconds long sniper montage as a first official game trailer. The video reveals mediocre graphics, but fast-paced and skill-based gameplay. Some of you might categorize this game as just 'another generic military shooter'.
Overall, is this game made to dethrone all those f2p military shooters that enjoy still much popularity in Asia, incl. Cross Fire, Sudden Attack, Special Force, A.V.A, etc.?
As there are no further details available, except that Black Squad features classic f2p PvP game modes and a large-scale-PvP mode, we have to wait for the upcoming Beta, and maybe Black Squad proves to be an FPS with great qualities.
While the shooter is set to launch in Korea first, it might be released in Western markets by 2015, if not later.
