Dirty Bomb  



Splash Damage begins closed alpha for Dirty Bomb


4:45 PM on 01.30.2013



Pfft, closed beta? Forget about it. It's time to usher in the era of closed alphas with Splash Damage's new first-person shooter, Dirty Bomb. In this video, the creator of the Counter-Strike map de_dust, Dave Johnston, walks through analytic tech called Echo that tracks player data and makes it easier for the studio to iterate. The end result, ideally, is a more balanced game for you.

Splash Damage has a website up for Dirty Bomb that's got sign-ups for the alpha, in addition to some rather excessive Founder's Club offerings. $120 gets you instant access to the alpha, to say nothing of the $320 VIP Founder Pack. I say "excessive," but I'm sure they crunched the numbers and enough people will happily pay up.
