City Interactive has announced the launch of the closed beta phase for World of Mercenaries. Beginning today, anyone with a beta key can redeem it through Steam and start playing it. The closed beta comes with two maps in two different modes. These two modes are described as a ‘classic’ and a ‘heavy team-oriented’ one. There are currently six different weapons and a dual health system to use.
Players can obtain keys by heading to the game’s official site and creating an account. Access is limited for now, but more beta keys will be released in waves. If you are selected, you will receive an email key and instructions in how you can participate in this closed beta.
Powered by Unreal Engine 3 and to be distributed digitally via Steam, World of Mercenaries is a skill based competitive free-to-play FPS that promises to feature stunning graphics, fluid controls, customizable weapons and focus on teamwork as a core element for player progression.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
