Welcome to the future of team-based tactical combat. Kiss your retinas goodbye!

MOSCOW, Russia – 2 nd April 2014 – violent: adjective. 1) using or involving violence. 2) very intense, forceful, or powerful. Kraken Games, an independent developer based in Moscow, are excited to introduce you to Warside, a visceral multiplayer sci-fi shooter for PC featuring classic 2D gameplay combined with RPG elements which has launched today on Steam Greenlight and is set to get a full release later this year.

In the future universe of Warside, players create their own elite soldier using a flexible character development system and take him in to online battle as part of a small tactical combat unit taking on other player led squads. Brutally fast and violent, the advanced RPG system brings a level of depth to the game that allows players to rely on their character’s unique stats and abilities as well as their own skill level in equal measure during the heat of combat.

Set across a variety of battle arenas including giant tree canopies, space stations, ancient ruins and secret labs, Warside actively encourages players to utilize the landscape around them and employ a variety of movement styles to gain a tactical advantage over enemy combatants. Combining different character classes and a wide variety of equipment on offer within your team will garner the best results.

Further gameplay details will be revealed over the coming weeks unveiling in depth the character development system, the wide array of equipment available to the player, the game modes and battle arenas.
