Nexon has announced a brand new game that pits teams of three against one another in furious FPS action. Called Rocket Arena, the game is already heading for closed beta via the Nexon Launcher and Steam. The first even will take place from May 23rd to May 29th. Players on PC and Xbox One who are interested in testing opportunities can head to the Rocket Arena site. The PlayStation 4 version will come at a later date.
Rocket Arena brings a unique 3-on-3 cross-platform experience to the first-person shooter genre and features a roster of vibrant characters competing in quick 5-minute matches in the Rocket Championship Tour. Set in the curious World of Crater, Rocket Arena introduces special gameplay mechanics distinct from standard shooters, reveling in a host of colorful weapons and abilities that utilize fanciful rockets in imaginative forms.
In Rocket Arena, players are equipped with a blast meter that increases as they are blasted by rockets. As the meter reaches its critical point, players become susceptible to being knocked out of the map, but will quickly return to the stage to stay in the action. With dedicated matchmaking functionality, servers account for skill level and latency when pairing players together.
