Beta testers wanted for Shattered Horizon
New screenshots showcase zero gravity FPS for PCs
HELSINKI, FINLAND June 16th, 2009 - Futuremark® Games Studio today announced that they are seeking PC gamers to test their zero gravity first-person shooter, Shattered Horizon. Gamers can sign up for the private beta test at the official website. http://www.shatteredhorizon.com
Shattered Horizon, first announced at the Leipzig Games Convention last year, sees players fight to survive in the aftermath of a catastrophic Moon mining accident that throws billions of tons of rocky debris into near-Earth space. Futuremark has released two new screenshots showcasing the game's unique zero gravity environments.
"Playing a multiplayer FPS in zero gravity offers gameplay possibilities that simply cannot be found in conventional shooters," said Antti Summala, Lead Game Designer at Futuremark Games Studio. "I invite every gamer looking for an FPS that offers something new and different to sign up for our beta test."
The beta is open to PC gamers from North America and Europe aged 18 and above. The minimum hardware requirements are Windows Vista, DirectX 10 graphics card, dual core processor, Steam account and a broadband Internet connection. No previous beta testing experience is necessary, just enthusiasm and time to play.
