War Rock, developed by Dream Execution, is an online FPS game in the style of EA's Battlefield 2, allowing you to experience online battlefields on a large scale, supporing vechicles for land, sea and air.

War Rock is a military tactical first person shooter (FPS), featuring state of the art weapons, team or solo based play and unbelievable missions and maps! Provided as Free to Download and Free2Play, players have the option to purchase access to a wide variety of game play enhancing items and services - or play the game as it is without ever paying a dime! With five different character classes to master, gamers can play individually or in a team, and participate in multiple types of gameplay ranging from Free-For-All death matches to team battles utilizing powerful war vehicles.

The new additions feature a new Close Quarters Combat map called Beringia and a vehicle upgrade of the Apache helicopter to the map Zakhar.

The NIU are using a secret location, code named “Beringia”, to transport supplies to their own ships from civilian tanker ships in the area. Somehow the Derbaran troops have discovered this top secret location and a group of elite paratroopers have been dispatched to the bow of the NIU tanker in order to sabotage this crucial NIU supply chain.

Combat takes place directly on the tanker ships, where soldiers can utilize 2 bridges to cross over to enemy territory. Use the shipping containers as cover, or have the option to maneuver inside the tankers looking for a lone soldier to pick off.

Depending if you’re NIU or Derbaran, objective on this map is to plant or defuse the bomb in timed matches to win. You can also play it on Free for All mode where there is no objective but to be the last trooper standing.

New Apache helicopter added to Zakahar map: The Apache is perhaps the most ferocious attack helicopter in use by the military today. Two soldiers can partner up to make use of all the firepower this high damaging helicopter can deliver. Armed with a M230 chain-gun manned by the co-pilot and equipped with a combination of Hellfire and Hydra missiles, the Apache helicopter can quickly dispatch enemy forces on land, sea and in air.

Background on Zakahar map: In an effort to build up their armory stores while avoiding Derbaran security checkpoints, the NIU have been shipping their weaponry in parts. The large industrial sector Zakhar has become home to several secret NIU arms assemblies despite a strong Derbaran infantry and armor presence.

Free2Play players can look forward to 5 more maps that they can gain access to in late August! These maps will include the powerful Apache helicopter and many more vehicles at their disposal.
