Coming in June from publisher Gameforge and Japanese game developer Soleil is Rockshot, a free-to-play multiplayer online third-person shooter game for PC.

“We’re very proud to be adding another high-caliber action title to our portfolio,” said Alexander Rösner, CEO of Gameforge.  “RockShot is an innovative shooter which is bound to set a few new trends.  We’re excited to hear the community’s feedback during the Early Access phase.  It’s only by working together with the players that we’ll be able to offer a truly solid title.”

RockShot’s main play mode is Raid.  In it, teams can design and build their own bases, defending them tooth and nail against enemy assaults, or infiltrate the bases of their enemies and extend their sphere of influence on the map.  There is an easy-to-learn base editor that ensures players and their friends can build the base that best represents their squad.  Earned resources can be invested in a powerful arsenal to keep the enemy at bay and can range from standard issue firearms and machine guns to marvelous melee weapons like katanas or even electric guitars.

The game also has genre-familiar PvP and PvE play options including team deathmatch and free-for-all.

Soleil says they've been working on RockShot since mid-2017.  When it releases into Early Access in June, the game will support two languages -- English and German -- with support for other languages planned post-launch.
