Each purchase comes with a second copy for a friend via Steam, Amazon or GamersGate
Releasing a new video, Dark Vale Games today announced that Forge, a PC-only multiplayer game set in a high-action fantasy world, will launch on December 4 for $19.99 via digital distribution. As an added bonus, anyone who purchases the game for $19.99 will receive a second copy of the game free-of-charge to bring another competitor into the fold.
Powered by Unreal Engine 3, Forge aims to deliver first-of-its-kind player-versus-player (PvP) combat by bridging the gap between the instant action of first-person shooters and the strategic competition of Massively Multiplayer Games. On Forge, a malicious being named The Devourer has swallowed the great pantheon of gods. Seeking escape, the trapped gods have deceptively turned great warriors into zealous adherents and placed them on a faceless world called Forge, where every champion's death feeds the immortals power. Choosing one of five unique warrior classes, the player must battle head-to-head against others in a bid to free their god from the clutches of The Devourer.
Forge's focus on skill as a determining factor for success means that individual player ability decides who lives and who dies. Players will need to use their reflexes and aim to annihilate opponents while also leveraging deeper strategy, tactics and MMO-style abilities to decide how to attack and when to defend.
