Battleswarm, developed by Gameworld Tech, simultaneously pits first-person shooters (FPS) vs. real-time strategy (RTS) players in this genre-busting online PC game. Players choose between team-based, first-person action, representing individual, elite soldiers or acting as the supreme commander of an alien task force, managing hundreds of alien bugs from a real-time strategy point of view.
Battleswarm allows up to six players to take control of soldiers in team-based, first- or third-person shooter mode, arming themselves from a huge arsenal of high-tech weapons and armor. They compete in discrete missions versus up to four Alien Commanders, who control hundreds of bug-like units in real-time strategy mode. The Alien Commanders must build hives, breed units, and manage their forces in missions to overwhelm the human opponents. Players can create guilds, buy and sell items, and level up their characters.
Reality Gap, Inc. has announced that it will be hosting an all day tournament on Sunday, October 4th.
Players can enter to win in a variety of categories including Best Overall Player, Best Human Player, and Best Bug Player. Prizes will include 100,000 in MetaTIX, a universal virtual currency for online games, and over 2,000,000 in-game gold, which can be spent on game upgrades such as flamethrowers, insect breeds and more. MetaTIX can be spent in Battleswarm: Field of Honor when the game goes public in late October, while game gold may be spent immediately.
