Take Arms Released

August 29,2011 - Discord Games would like to announce the release of their debut independent title Take Arms. Featured in the Indie Games Summer Uprising promotion, Take Arms is a 2D multiplayer class-based shooter available on Xbox Live Indie Games for 240 MSP.

Take Arms delivers fast, challenging gameplay for up to 8 players over Xbox Live or System Link with stunning anime-style HD artwork, all at a smooth 60 FPS. Play as three different classes: the quick and light Striker equipped with a sniper rifle, the slow and heavy Destroyer equipped with a belt-fed machine gun, or the middle-ground Grunt with burst-fire assault rifle. Dominate three diverse locales (Bridge, Forest Complex, & Trainyard) and three game types (DM, TDM, & CTF). Practice in solo mode with bots that support multiple difficulty levels and all game types. Track your experience as you gain ranks and earn badges.

A Launch trailer is now available ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-YiliuYhAE). Discord Games previously released a Teaser trailer featuring narration by Jon St. John ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iN6Z_92oTBE), and a timelapse video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDi3Z8uZ7m0) documenting the design and development process of the game from August 2009 through April 2011.
