Free-to-play shooter War Inc. Battlezone enters open beta

6:30 PM on 07.18.2011 // Liam Fisher

There's no shortage of Free-to-play shooters scattered across the interwebs, that's for sure. However, Online Warmongers Group Inc. (longest studio name ever?) is attempting to throw one more in the ring with their upcoming free-to-play TPS War Inc. Battlezone, now in open beta. Featuring up to 64-players online,  War Inc. aims to raise the bar for F2P games with every intentin of delivering "a premium online game experience in a F2P package." 

A big focus in War Inc.'s development has been on avoiding the, as they put it, "pay-to-win mentality." In playing other F2P titles, you'll undoubtedly notice that players willing to pay will more often than that come out on top. Online Warmongerers Group is putting a greater emphasis on skill and team-based, tactical combat. As we've heard though, war never changes.

 

As per Valve's decision to begin supporting free-to-play games via Steam, War Inc.'s open beta will be available through the service as well as IGN's Fileplanet and the game's official site. I've yet to see it available on Steam, but I'll be giving it a shot as soon as it goes live.
