Level Up launches Assault Fire closed beta in PHL

A new first-person shooter game is coming to town, and promises to introduce gamers to the future of firepower.

Philippine online game publisher "Level Up!" said the game, dubbed "Assault Fire," features next-generation 3D graphics, and new and intense game modes like Mech and Mutant Matches.

“We’re very excited to introduce Assault Fire to the local gaming community. With its multitude of game modes, 'Assault Fire' is THE game for every type of FPS player. Players are bound to spend countless hours piloting mechs, destroying mutants, or surviving cyborg zombies. It’s high time that Pinoy FPS gamers got to taste the future of firepower, today,” said Playweb Games General Manager Jake San Diego.

The game from Chinese developer Tencent Games also has a skill system that lets a player build his or her soldier character.

In the game, players can wage war as either the government-sanctioned unit G.S.D.U. or the renegade group Resistance, battling mutants, monsters and each other.

Closed beta testing

"Assault Fire" started Closed Beta Testing on Thursday, April 25. The good news for players is that their characters won't be wiped once the game graduates to Open Beta.

E-sports tournament

Players can also take part in a national e-sports tournament series, where they can win cash prizes, bragging rights, and a chance to represent the country in a special exhibition match at the prestigious World Cyber Games (WCG) in China.

“We're really pulling out all the stops with Assault Fire in terms of competition. We're giving out more than half a million in cash prizes when we do our nationwide quarterly pro-tournaments starting with our annual e-sports event, Level Up! Live, on July 6," said Keith Morales, "Assault Fire" Business Unit Director at Playweb Games.

Morales added these will culminate in a three-way battle where the Philippine Champions will compete against China and Brazil's best Assault Fire team.

"This will truly be Level Up!'s biggest tournament ever.” he said. — TJD, GMA News
