New free-to-play FPS: Dirty Bomb

Postby cug » Wed Jun 03, 2015 4:49 pm

Dirty bomb is a new free-to-play FPS by Splash Damage, the company that made Enemy Territory years ago.
It's just gone open-beta through steam.
I haven't played it yet but looks interesting. Alot like ET: Team Fortress-style classes, objective-driven asymmetrical maps.

Gameplay video (skip to 9:00):

looks fun! shame about the same same weapons but aside from that it looks fun

Unreal Tournament is also free to play and has some new features; by the time it's finished it might well be a proper new FPS

Seems OK. Can't see it holding my interest very long though. Never played ET:TF either :D

In ET you have several classes of soldier: Engie blows up and repairs stuff vital to achieving objective, Medics revive teammates and can give health packs, Lieutenant gives out ammo packs and calls air strikes, cant remember the other class name which enabled picking up enemy uniform and being able to infiltrate the enemy camp to open doors to let team in and assist engies in blowing shit up. Heaps of fun, and very team play oriented. Or, as many would, you could just shoot to kill and work on your k/d... Built on the quake engine so movement feels good...

I never played TF either...

Ah OK, sounds a little like that Overwatch game Blizzard are making... I might be tempted to install it. Anyone else keen?

Looks good.

I used to play team fortress when it started on quake 1. It was my go to game that was always fun and with the different classes always different. I hate the new TF with its super slow movement though.

I loaded it up tonight, its quite fun actually. Only noticed one bug of XP not being recorded. and only 1 match with massively unbalanced teams. so many people too. You have to fight to get a spot in the 20 aussie servers.

do you have to run steam to be able to play it/find servers?
