'Combat Arms' Content Update Adds New Map, Features And Abilities

Combat Arms is a free-to-play online FPS that deploys players into a dangerous war zone teaming with soldiers of fortune looking to make a mark.

Combat Arms deploys players into a dangerous war zone teeming with soldiers of fortune looking to make a mark. The online shooter will advance the FPS genre by offering a rich free-to-play experience and introducing customization features unavailable in the current generation of online FPS games. Players have the ability to tailor their gaming experience by customizing how their characters look as well as which guns and equipment to carry into battle. A large arsenal of deadly weapons can be modified with attachments such as silencers, scopes and extended magazines.

The time is now to ambush NEMEXIS HQ. The notorious corporation that unleashed the Overdose Virus must be annihilated in “Combat Arms,” Nexon’s high intensity free-to-play first-person shooter game. Nexon launched the “Belly of the Beast” content update today, which introduces the latest player-versus-environment (PvE) map, an expedited matchmaking system and all new player Abilities.

Players can now seek revenge for the lives robbed by the experimental virus at NEMEXIS HQ, the newest PvE map. Within the headquarters is a mass of augmented enemy guards and a colossal gunship boss known as the Defensive Remote Engagement Assault Drone (D.R.E.A.D.). Players can jump into the NEMEXIS HQ map by using the new Quick Start feature, which rapidly matches players with their favorite maps and game modes.

Players can also enhance the new PvE map experience with the addition of four new Abilities: Opportunist, Spoils of War, Parting Gift and Relentless. Nimble scavengers can now use Opportunist and Spoils of War to loot a primary weapon from a fallen player and receive bonus GP for the plunder. Two additional Abilities will soften the blow of losing a life in battle, as Parting Gift drops a grenade at a fallen player’s feet, while Relentless allows players to respawn faster in select modes.

The game is beginner-friendly while providing great depth for veteran gamers. By rewarding players who win matches and make kills with in-game currency and experience points, Combat Arms extends the game beyond an individual match. Accumulating both will help soldiers rank up to unlock and acquire new weapons and equipment. Further, the game extends beyond the battlefield through an extensive set of community features with a focus on clans. Players can recruit, manage, and communicate with their clan members, all within the game. Additionally, players can maintain a persistent profile to track their experience and performance to see how they rank within the Combat Arms community.

Combat Arms focuses on improving accessibility and community while maintaining a high fidelity combat experience. The free-to-play offering combined with low system requirements will encourage new players enter the traditionally hardcore space.
