With the world in a state of chaos and powerful nations competing for money and resources, Blackshot players must take on the role of a mercenary and make a name for themselves in the game’s dangerous environments. Aspiring soldiers of fortune can enter the Blackshot war zone later this summer, when the game makes its worldwide debut.
Starting from the 10th of March till the 17th of March 2010, we performed the 1st phase of our closed beta tests. In this time we had more than 7000 unique tester online on our servers from various European and North American countries, giving our servers the first stress tests.
