'Extraction' Renamed Back To 'Dirty Bomb'

Dirty Bomb is an Unreal Engine 3-powered free-to-play competitive/multiplayer shooter set in 2020 London during the aftermath of a mysterious disaster.

It is 2020 and the once great city of London stands abandoned after a mysterious disaster, a dilapidated shell of its former self. After the initial evacuation, the International Crisis and Disaster Agency stepped in to clean up the mess and decontaminate the city. They failed… badly.

Now the streets of London are the playground of Private Military Companies (PMCs) who battle to control the city’s abandoned riches. After all, what’s a little radiation sickness when there’s money to be made?

Say goodbye to London, say hello to the Merc Capital of the World. Say hello to Dirty Bomb.

Free-to-play, and more importantly, free-to-win, Dirty Bomb is a unique team-based game in which players will select from a diverse group of mercenaries, each with their own very different personalities, talents and weapons, to create specialized squads to take into the fray on a quest for riches and bragging rights.

Through Splash Damage’s founder’s program, player feedback has shaped the game from day one, and will continue to do so through open beta later this year.

Nexon America and Splash Damage have changed the name of their upcoming online shooter from Extraction to Dirty Bomb, to better fit the game’s unique personality. The company promises this will “almost definitely” be the last name change before launch. Nexon also has announced it will run dedicated servers for Dirty Bomb in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Key Features:

  • Your Mercs, Your Style: Snipe, attack, cover, or heal throughout the streets of london with a wide range of mercenaries, each big on personality and long on abilities. Master your Merc, serve your team.
  • Construct, Destroy, Hack, and Escort: Multiplayer matches are driven by mission objectives. Or let your kill skill shine in team deathmatch.
  • No Kill is Cheap, No Win is Paid For: The most valuable thing in this truly free-to-play shooter is talent. Whether you're in world-class competition or a quick firefight, it's your skill that brings the kill.
  • The Only Good Fight Is A Fair Fight: Developer Splash Damage uses in-game analytics and player feedback to ensure extraction delivers the highest performance experience.

Dirty Bomb is currently in a limited closed beta and will be ramping up in the coming months. Visit the official Dirty Bomb website to sign up for the chance to join the closed beta or for more information on Dirty Bomb.
