Fresh off the press release from OGPlanet comes word that they have released the online multiplayer fighting game, Rumble Fighter — and they think they have exactly the type of game you’ve been waiting for. As Chief Creative Officer Jack Liu points out, their aim was to bypass those watered-down casual fighting games normally found on PCs, and evolve the formula into something a bit more worthy of your time:
“Until now, most online fighting games have been limited to simple gameplay derived from consoles. Rumble Fighter brings the high-quality experience of console fighting games to the PC, but with true multiplayer capability and persistent characters players can build and customize over time into truly original fighters.”
Featuring 8-player simultaneous battles and an advanced combo attack skill system based off real fighting styles, Rumble Fighter was built from the ground up — with customization in mind. You can find out more about the free game here. I also found an unofficial trailer for Rumble Fighter that looked pretty good. As noted on the official site, OGPlanet is offering the gas mask as an in-game added bonus for those that log in before August 8th.
