“Now that GunSwords has hit Open Beta it’s important that we’re bringing the community together”, said Dmitry Mikhalev, CEO of One Button Studio. “These events provide everyone with a great opportunity to battle new players, give direct feedback or just get to know us as developers.”
February’s Beta Bash series can be broken up into the following weekly events:
· Double GP + Tin: Everyone who plays GunSwords during the Beta Bash timeslots – Thursdays for 24 hours starting at 6pm CEST/9am CEST and Sundays 12am CEST/3pm Pacific to 2am CEST/5pm Pacific – will receive double Game Points and Tin.
· Live Q&A + Dev Challenge Twitch Stream: Sundays from 12am-2am CEST/3pm-5pm Pacific players can join the official GunSwords Twitch channel – www.twitch.tv/gunswords – to challenge the developers in streamed matches and participate in a live Q&A session.
In GunSwords players must build a squad using available equipment and fight other players in special arenas. By winning battles, gamers can gain ranks and ultimately become champions. The combat system in GunSwords is a powerful fusion of core turn-based features, such as a hex grid, Fog of War, fighter classes with unique roles, fine action point management, power-ups and more. These features were picked, designed and balanced to provide the best possible player versus player (PvP) gameplay experience.
Players begin building a squad by choosing recruits from three different classes of fighters: Swordsmen, Gunners and Mages. A choice of 17 weapons and spells are also available – each upgradeable to 10 level – including swords, chainsaws, shotguns, miniguns, rocket launchers, railguns, etc. Using these weapons and their newly-formed squads, players can challenge other players to turn-based battles to gain points, currency to buy and upgrade weapons and fighters and prestige in the online leaderboard.
