'NITE Team 4' Announced, Seeks Crowd Funding - Screens & Trailer

NITE Team 4 is a story-driven military hacking simulation game with strategy and RPG elements featuring cyber-warfare scenarios.

You play as a new recruit in the covert hacking cell, Network Intelligence & Technical Evaluation (NITE) Team 4. Engaged in cyberwarfare with black hat groups and hostile states, you will be in a struggle to penetrate highly secure targets. Your job is to use the STINGER hacking system to infiltrate hardened computer networks and coordinate strike teams on the ground to carry out missions that feature real espionage tradecraft terminology taken straight from leaked NSA documents.

In NITE Team 4, players will have access to a virtual hacking platform based off real cybersecurity systems (Kali Linux/Metasploit). Each mission is broken down into distinct phases including Recon, Exploitation and Raid. 

To expand the game’s potential, Alice & Smith recently launched a Kickstarter campaign (looking for $25,287) which includes various stretch goal for PVP modules, player malware crafting, mission editors and more. Players will have the ability to influence the development process of NITE Team 4 by voting on the main story, helping build lore and design key NPCs and factions.

NITE Team 4 will make an appearance in The Secret World with a military-style backpack gear item, available for free to all TSW players. It’s the perfect item for infiltration and recon operations. Use it to store your infected USB drives, keyloggers, wireless auditing tool kits and more! The Secret World players who back our campaign will also receive access to an exclusive cross-universe ARG mission, plus limited edition NITE Team 4 uniforms that can be worn by their characters in The Secret World!

In the Recon Phase, players will be performing research and investigative tasks to learn all they can using actual espionage tradecraft. Utilize reconnaissance tools to map networks, fingerprint systems and gather intelligence that will help you uncover possible weaknesses in the target organization. 

After gaining a thorough understanding of the enemy, players will move to the Exploitation Phase where they will use hacking modules to exploit and gain a secure foothold into the target. Customize your attack strategy by leveraging all the offensive cybersecurity tools at your disposal. 

Finally, the Raid Phase begins where players will work with military teams on the ground to provide specialized support and direct units to effectively compromise an entire facility/organization using highly advanced cyberwarfare equipment. Ensure your team is well equipped to defeat threats on the ground, facility security controls and network defenses.

The STINGER system is a specialized interface that allows players to control hacking modules and use custom tools to deliver an immersive hacking experience.

Direct troops to perform raids in support of field operations like covertly implanting devices with malware, targeting drone strikes and sabotaging target.

Mission campaigns feature espionage terms and references, sourced from leaked NSA documents in the Snowden archive. Inspired by actual cybersecurity systems like Kali Linux and Metasploit.

From Advanced Persistent Threats to covert malware projects that destroy critical infrastructure, NITE Team 4 is inspired by the real world of cyberwarfare. We bring this world to life using our 2+ years of Alternate Reality Game development experience and optional ARG elements that enhance the immersion of the universe (websites, research online, etc).
