Dirty Bomb, Splash Damage's upcoming shooter, has officially opened its beta programme to all-comers today, requiring no codes or invitations to participate.
Best known for its work on Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, Splash Damage's latest creation is a blend of first-person shooter and free-to-play MOBA set in a near-future London. Developed in partnership with Nexon over the last few years, the game has been operating in an invitation-only closed beta which has now opened up fully for all Windows gamers to try.
'No more access keys, no more buy-in, no more raffles, no more sign-ups; anyone in our service area that wants to play Dirty Bomb can download it through the Steam client and play for free,
' the development team confirmed in a blog post
last week. 'It’s taken a long time to get here. Over the last few years, we at Splash Damage and Nexon have been working hard to make Dirty Bomb a shooter that rewards skill and coordination above all else. With five maps designed for the classic Objective style gameplay, a dozen unique mercs and more, Dirty Bomb is an FPS like none other.
The companies have promised that more content is to come, stating that 'more features, more maps, new ways to play and, of course, plenty of new Mercs
' - the name given to the user-selectable MOBA-style heroes of the game - will be released throughout Dirty Bomb's open beta.
The beta is available via Steam
, but has not yet unlocked for invite-free download.
