Merc Elite Closed-Beta

In a World Gripped by Chaos, Corporate Soldiers Reign Supreme.

Rising from the smoking wreckage of failed states, five corporations wrested power from the chaos to rule over a lawless disillusioned society. To achieve their sinister schemes, these conglomerates deploy special units to take their aims with force. Staffed primarily by ex-members of armed forces from every nation, these professional outfits emphasize top-of-the-line equipment and boast experienced, deadly employees. They are the finest mercenaries the planet has to offer: the elite.

Merc Elite: The Next-Generation of MOBA Games

Merc Elite is a team-based, PvP, strategic shooter that delivers spectacular action in a cutting-edge game world set in the near future. Thanks to the novel direct-fire combat system, players can simply point and click to fire at any target, which provides them with increased control and precision in combat. Elaborate, varied battlefields offer a multitude of strategic cover options to minimize enemy fire and the refined line of sight feature allows players to explore the terrain, while staying out of enemy view. Merc Elite delivers exciting, tense, relentless action in 5v5 online battles; where players can unlock advanced military weapons, train new skills, and hire powerful new mercenaries by directing their team to victory.

Players can choose from five different character classes: Recon, Tactician, Assault, Heavy Gunner or the Juggernaut. Each class contains a unique skillset that players can employ to successfully complete strategic operations in a series of rapid-succession battles.
Merc Elite is aimed at MOBA players looking for a new challenge in an entirely unique game setting, and shooter fans looking for innovative new gameplay. Merc Elite is free-to-play and emphasizes fair, skill-based arena combat and is built on Unity Web Player technology, which requires no client installation or download.

Bigpoint will soon release further information about Merc Elite, its five character classes, as well as detailed descriptions of the respective sub-classes.
