CJ Games Global announced today that its free-to-play, first-person-shooter District 187: Sin Streets will officially launch on November 20th. Following several months of beta testing, the entire game will be released, including the unveiling of ‘Street Fight’; the competitive, team vs. team game feature, allowing players to form clans and battle for territory control within the menacing streets of District 187.
Starting today, players can register for special beta access to ‘Street Fight,’ before the official launch of the game. A select few will be granted the opportunity to take to the streets, annihilate the competition and win prizes for their entire team, including the most coveted prize of all, bragging rights.
Street Fight beta begins Monday Nov. 12, 2012. Players can sign up starting today through November 11th at District187’s official website.
Jon-Enée Merriex, Producer, CJ Games Global said:
“Street Fight is a weaponized tug-of-war, with teams competing in ranked matches and fighting for control of the city. Street Fight is a key component to the identity of District 187, focused on the excitement of high level, team-oriented competition while rewarding players with quality prizes on a weekly basis. We’re excited to have this ready at launch as we start to venture out into the e-sports communities.”
‘Street Fight’ will be hosted on the International server and open for four vs. four, clan competition each week; Monday from 12:01 a.m. PST to Thursday at 11:59 p.m. PST. Winners will be announced every Friday with prizes to be injected into their accounts thereafter.
District 187: Sin Streets looks like a fun F2P game, though it does not feature the gorgeous graphics of Warface (and has some HUD elements that reminded us of Counter-Strike). Still, you can’t really say no to something that is free, can you?
