Bethesda lifted the veil on their newest project by Austin-based BattleCry Studios – an online team based game aptly named BATTLECRY.

According to a blog post on the official BATTLECRY website, Executive Producer Rich Vogel explains the team’s thoughts behind creating a competitive, online game:

From day one, we wanted the greatest elements of single-player action games like Devil May Cry and God of War – stunning animations and exciting, visceral combat – and planned to bring those features to the world of competitive multiplayer games. We then combined those awesome elements with the rock-solid tenets of competitive design such as the combat loops and time-to-engagement of the best shooters in the world. This combination is ambitious but the challenge has paid off.

Beyond combat, we wanted to offer something else to players – an original IP. In this new universe where traditional warfare is dead and gunpowder is outlawed, we looked to a striking fictional world directed by Viktor Antonov – well known for his amazing work on Dishonored and Half-Life 2 – to help reveal the story of the Panasophic Revolution.

Set in a world full of ritualized combat, BATTLECRY pits you in battles with 32 players as you carve yourself a piece of the glory for your faction. As of right now, there are two factions announced: The Royal Marines and the Cossacks. There are also multiple classes to allow for a variety of gameplay experiences. The factions meet in predetermined WarZones, and each Zone is designed to allow for superb positioning, spacing and verticality to gain an edge over your opponent.

The game is slated for a 2015 Beta. Until then, make sure you head over to the official website to learn more, as well as check out the new cinematic reveal trailer, showcasing some of the visceral combat that is sure to become a mainstay of this exciting new brawler.
