Nexon America and Final Strike Games have announced Rocket Arena, a new 3v3 multiplayer first-person shooter that's due to enter Closed Beta testing next week. This testing phase will run between May 23rd and May 29th via Steam and the Nexon Launcher and you can sign up to be selected on the game's official website; the beta features six maps, four game modes and six characters to choose from, and testers will be rewarded with cosmetic items for their participation.
Kevin Franklin, Founder/CEO of Final Strike Games, said:
We developed Rocket Arena with high-quality gameplay mechanics, superb controls, and the network code required of an online FPS. Rocket Arena is an intricate shooter at its core, complete with a marvelous world, colorful characters, and ridiculous rockets. Nexon shared our vision for Rocket Arena and provided the resources and expertise to realize our goal. The result is a game that our team is exceptionally proud of, and look forward to playing every day.
At launch, Rocket Arena will be available on both PC and Xbox One with crossplay between the two platforms. The PlayStation 4 version is set to launch at a later date and will likely miss the crossplay feature due to Sony's known policies.
Welcome to the curious World of Crater—where rockets reign and champions are made! The Rocket Championship Tour is both competition and cultural obsession, and its participants hail from every wild and mysterious corner of Crater.
Crater’s competitions are hosted by its regions, including a high-tech utopia, an undersea colony, a tropical pirate refuge, mysterious jungles, an ice kingdom, and barren wastelands full of lost Megadon. Some competitors are veterans, others are new and ready to make their mark, but all skill levels and playstyles are welcome.
As a new contender, here’s what you’ll need to know before you jump in:
- Choose from unique competitors and rep your region on a variety of maps in 3-on-3 rocket combat.
- Blast opponents out of the arena with unique rockets.
- Watch out for RocketBots—the rogue, rocket-loving robots inhabiting our co-op mode.
Anything can happen on Crater, and only one thing is certain: there’s never a dull moment when the rockets start flying!
