Infernum launches Sandbox Shooter with 1 Million Players
Berlin, 12th July 2012 – Starting now, the release version of the online game Brick-Force is live and free-to-play for all brick and shooter fans. Client and browser version can be downloaded and found on www.brick-force.com, respectively, the latter making it possible to play Brick-Force on Mac.
About 1,000,000 registered players are now experiencing all sorts of new features. Thanks to the new item upgrade system, outfits and weapons can be enhanced for the first time. In addition, the completely re-designed interface offers visual as well as functional improvements while game mechanics have been optimized as well. The new PvP feature ‘Build ‘n Destroy’ provides diversified fun with new content.
This mode features two opposing teams on the same map, who are separated from each other by an opaque wall for a predetermined time. During this phase, it’s all about building – before the countdown runs out and the wall comes down, each available second has to be used to place bricks in strategic, defensive positions. As soon as time is up, the opponents’ side of the map becomes visible and the Brick-Gun is swapped for live ammunition. It´s now up to everyone to overcome the rival team’s turrets, trenches and obstacles to bring the foes to their knees with bravery and skill. During a match, up to 5 build phases which gives each team the opportunity can be used to keep working on one’s own side of the map. Whoever has the most kills by the end of each session wins the match.
By the way, the buzzing bee isn’t only the trailer’s protagonist: In the next few weeks, the winged monsters will enter Brick-Force alongside the PvE feature ‘Defense’. Additional upcoming updates will include new design themes, rankings, play modes and the mobile version.
