Splash Damage announced that its upcoming F2P title will be now called Extraction. In addition, Splash Damage revealed that it is partnering with Nexon America to operate our free-to-play multiplayer shooter Extraction in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Not only that, but Splash Damage claimed that the game won’t be a pay-to-win title. But then again, we’ve heard that from pretty much every F2P developer, haven’t we?
Paul Wedgwood, CEO at Splash Damage, said:
“We spent a long time finding the right partner for us on Extraction. Nexon America’s vast experience and the fact that they’re a true trailblazer in the F2P PC game arena ultimately made the decision super easy for us. Extraction is a title we love making and playing, and hope that the collaborative nature of the game delivers a dynamic and fun experience for players.”
Min Kim, Nexon America’s CEO, added:
“We are inspired by the passion of the developers at Splash Damage and have immense respect for their expertise in multiplayer game development. Extraction’s refreshing blend of action and team-oriented strategy provides the depth PC shooter fans have been looking for. Through our partnership with Splash Damage, we hope to plant a massive win for online gamers.”
Extraction will be playable at this year’s PAX Prime, and you can view some new screenshots from it below.
