IDC Games has announced that its forthcoming tactical battle MMO, Affected Zone Tactics, is ready to begin open beta testing starting today. Interested players can download and install the client via Steam or through the game company's own platform. Currently, AZT is available in English, Spanish and French with plans to add six more languages over time.
In Affected Zone Tactics, the player takes the role of Commander of a small mercenary group that ventures into a mysterious, parallel world in search of newly discovered energy sources. The gates to this parallel world were opened thanks to a portal created by Nicola Tesla in the 40s. However, this access is being used by armed groups to conquer the regions where there are plenty of these new energy sources. Players will take part in team-based battles in different playing modes, including for example a Capture the Flag mode (CTF).
