Brick-Force Launches A VIP Open Beta

Berlin, April 19th 2012: On April 26th the first phase of the Brick-Force Open Beta begins: Infernum, a publisher and developer of online games, today announced that it will host a special ‘VIP Open Beta’. Over 500,000 users who have registered for Brick-Force so far will have the opportunity to invite their friends for guaranteed immediate access to the sandbox shooter. To ensure an uninterrupted and smooth gaming experience for the start of the Open Beta, Infernum Productions will give all registered players the opportunity to immerse themselves exclusively with their friends in the block-based universe. The full Open Beta will soon be freely available to all and all stats will be stored permanently from next Thursday for all players with an invite.

The VIP Open Beta will go live with numerous changes and improvements based on community feedback. The building mode will be expanded to include new features to empower map builders, such as the possibility to build several bricks at once or defy gravity with the sandbox Jetpack. Furthermore, brand new sounds will be introduced in all language versions, in addition to improved balancing. Several new items will be offered in the item shop via game currency or real money. A complete redesign of the interface will also be implemented shortly after the Open Beta launch, along with the browser version which is nearing completion.

Currently two other shooter modes are being created by developer EXE Games and Infernum Productions and will launch in a matter of weeks. The ‘Defense Mode’ will introduce brand new PvE maps where players will need to battle wave upon wave of monsters. ‘Build and Destroy’ will give players the chance to build bricks and frantically fight at the same time in shooter mode.

Infernum is focused on the improvement and expansion of the core gameplay over the coming weeks. The launch of the Mobile and Tablet versions are planned for this Summer. Further information and news can be found on the Official Website at www.brick-force.com and the Official Facebook Page www.facebook.com/BrickForceOfficial.

Brick-Force – Build, Share, Play

This sandbox shooter allows players to create worlds and maps that they’ve always dreamed of, brick by brick. They can also share these virtual playgrounds with the community and use them as the backdrop for fast paced shooter hunts against fellow players or computerized opponents. This comic style online game is built on the ‘Unity 3D’ engine and will be playable directly in a web browser. The ‘sandbox’ mode, in which players use simple building blocks to construct complex environments, can be played on social networks and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Brick-Force is being developed by Korean game developer EXE Games as a co-production with Infernum. The closed beta was launched in February, Open Beta will start on the April 26th.
