The free-to-play multiplayer world has a new FPS to take a look at. Today marks the beginning of the Ironsight open beta launch, granting everyone their opportunity to hop into the game and join in with Founders who were already granted access…who hopefully don’t have, like, weapons that will one-shot the new arrivals or something.
The new open beta build for Ironsight will feature four new maps, new PvP and PvE modes, and a new ranking system to climb. Patch notes are expected to post on the game’s official forums but are currently not available at the time of this writing.
Ironsight is expected to continue updating with 10 different planned maps, an offering of 100 different weapons, and social features such as in-game clans and clan battles. As one would expect of an open beta, the game is fully free-to-play; you’re welcome to take a closer look on the website.
Ironsight is definitely arriving in a very crowded free-to-play genre, both in general and with shooters specifically. That said, perhaps the game’s sense of future-tech will be enough to drive up interest. We’re looking forward to seeing how players take to this new title.
Got your heart set on playing something new? Maybe the Ironsight open beta will scratch that itch when it begins on February 1st.
What is it, you ask? Well, Ironsight is an online shooter set in 2025 when the world has devolved into two factions’ fight over the last remaining natural resources. There are 10 maps planned for release featuring Search & Destroy, Team Deathmatch, Secure Point, and Resource Takeover game modes which are focused mainly on team play and a decent use of tactics. There is also a co-op mode where you can choose between Mission: EMP and AI Team Deathmatch. Each time-limited round sees players taking a variety of drones and controllable mechs, which is always a fun time.
Following the technical beta, Ironsight will receive new content and other goodies, including four new maps, a new game mode, and a new mission to take on, as well as a host of improvements and bug fixes. Ironsight founders can also enjoy an exclusive pre-open beta phase from January 30th, allowing them to get a small headstart.
You can find out more on the official Ironsight website, and read up about the information collected from the technical beta test here if you’re interested.
We see an awful lot of online shooters come and go in this industry, but some are certainly worth a look. Of course, we can’t know how Ironsight will play just yet but it certainly looks to have a lot of polish at this point so we’ll be keeping our eye on it as development is ongoing. Will you be checking out Ironsight when it hits open beta?
We finally return to our regularly scheduled quiet period on the MMO Alpha and Beta List. Though this week we did see two games leave the list and launch, Raiders of the Broken Planet and Guardians of Ember. You can find both of these on Steam if you’re curious.
PvP brawler Blast Out started Early Access this week.
Webzen announced that MU Legend’s open beta would begin on November 7th, after having been delayed earlier this year.
Speaking of delays, Dauntless has delayed their open beta until the beginning few months of 2018.
And this week there were two newly announced games. The first is Ironsight, a first-person shooter from Gamigo. The other is Pantropy another FPS, but this one is all about the mechs and keeping the limited resources. Pantropy will be having a Kickstarter in early November, so we’ll be keeping an eye out for more on that.
Just to let everyone know, there will not be a Beta List next week. I’ll be spending the time working on making sure each and every game on the list is correct and up to date. So if you know of any games I need to add let me know in the comments!
As always you can find everything I listed above and so much more in the lists below. Keep an eye out for the new flag which will let you know what is new this week.
