Developer Edge of Reality announced that Loadout, its free-to-play "over-the-top" multiplayer shooter, will launch on Jan. 31, 2014.
Loadout claims that its weapon-crafting system will allow over 44 billion possible variations for players to assemble, allowing them to define their own class and play style.
Edge of Reality has 15 years of experience in the industry, contributing to projects like Mass Effect, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, The Sims, and Dragon Age. Loadout is its first original game. "We couldn't be more excited to open it up to the masses,” CEO Rob Cohen said in a press release. “We started this as a passion project, working on it when we could, and trying to create something original and truly player-friendly. What we've got now is a game that’s a blast to play, quick and easy to get into, and empowers players with insane amounts of customization.”
Currently in early access, Loadout will be available through Steam when it launches, but you can create an account and reserve a name tag now here.
