Extraction closed beta starts October 1

Splash Damage-developed online shooter formerly known as Dirty Bomb enters beta next month; sign-ups now available.

by

A closed beta for Splash Damage's free-to-play online shooter Extraction--formerly known as Dirty Bomb--will begin on October 1, the developer has announced.

Those interested in participating in the beta can sign up through the game's website.

Extraction was originally announced as Dirty Bomb in November 2012. Last month, it was announced that Nexon would publish the game and it would be renamed Extraction.

In Extraction, players can choose from dozens of roles with different play styles and abilities, and fight in teams to vanquish enemies by defending or attacking key objectives.

The game is set in an evacuated London, following a "mysterious radiological attack," as squads of mercenaries take to the streets to extract valuable information left behind.

Splash Damage created the stylized shooter Brink and is also currently working on the multiplayer component for Batman: Arkham Origins.

Nexon, ugh... The games they publish always have good potential but they ruin it by making them excessively pay to win. I guess we'll see though, I AM looking forward to the 'Ghost in the Shell' game they're doing after all (assuming it gets released stateside...)

Hmmm, I loved Brink.. I think I logged in over 400 hours on that game lol. The free-running gameplay was a ton of fun. Still can't believe it's not in every FPS yet, although CoD has finally added it. I got lucky though and never suffered any of the issues other people had. I'd be interested in playing this, especially since it's free to play.

@MJ12-Conspiracy That mean you wont be playing the online part of Batman Origins then?, since they're making it.

And the fact its free2play means nothing either?, im not saying its going to be a good game i found Brink boring and quite flawed, but this is free2play.

You are so cute. Like it or not, no one thing would ever bring Xbox to a halt. When your parent company is as big as it is, to say that something they push for would kill them is just ludicrous. Otherwise...I'm pretty sure Betamax should have been the end of Sony. Grow up. Instead of the yellow press-like phlegm you're spitting, try just expressing your dislike. Gives you a lot more credibility.
