Arctic Combat is a new mmofps developed and published by Webzen. Arctic Combat takes places in a world where resources are scarce. Every nation turns its attention towards the resource rich Arctic territory. The conflict becomes so intense that it could lead to a third world war. The two main opposing factions are R.S.A and A.F. Russia and China form the Red Star Alliance (R.S.A). The Allied Forces (A.F) is an alliance between U.S.A, Canada, Australia and a few others. Players will select one of the two factions. Arctic Combat doesn’t offer a class choice. Character specialization is mostly given by weapons. At the moment, players can select only face, helmet and clothing for their characters. There are only male types available. More customization will be available as players gain ranks in Arctic Combat.
Arctic Combat is a free mmofps where weapons define the played character. There are lots of ways to acquire weapons and useful items. They can be picked up from the battlefield. At the end of a game, players can roll for items. The chance to win is random. The auction house is another way to get weapons and items. Rewards are given after completing PvE missions. However, weapons will not be purchasable from the cash shop. Arctic Combat is designed with fairness and balance in mind. Everyone will have equal chances to get the best gear. Your skill and dedication are the only things that count, not the size of your wallet. Just like most fps games, Arctic Combat is all about PvP. There are 5 modes: free for all, conquest, death match, demolition and seek and destroy. PvE can be challenging too. Arctic Combat AI is said to be quite difficult. There are 3 difficulty settings. The last one can pose a challenge to even the most experimented fps gamers. Arctic Combat runs on Unreal Engine 2.5. It’s not the best graphic engine but it keeps Arctic Combat from being too system demanding.
Developers wanted to make the combat experience as genuine and realistic as possible. Some players might be shocked when playing Arctic Combat mmofps for the first time. It can get really bloody and messy on the battlefield. Players can zoom in to get a better view at their targets. Because Arctic Combat just made its debut on the free mmo market it still lacks some features. More visual customization options wouldn’t hurt. The developers announced they are considering female characters too. More modes and maps are under development. For now, Arctic Combat is a good fps but with some more features it could become a reference in the free to play mmofps market.
