Storm United Massive Online FPS Gearing Up For Early Access

By - | Views: 13,154
You can be forgiven if you forgot all about Storm United, as we haven't covered it in some time! Storm United is a socially driven class based massively multiplayer First Person Shooter on top of an omnipresent clan foundation. Start your journey by choosing a recruiting clan, no players are left behind.

We spoke to the developers some time ago and it was using Unity, but they switched to Unreal Engine, so we can expect much better performance.

They are hoping for a first release of their Unreal Engine FPS around the 23rd of December on Steam.

We do have a number of shooters available on Linux, but we don't have many MMO-class games, and it looks like Storm United could fill the void for a lot of us.

The early access release will come with 5 game modes, 6 maps, a vehicle, clan features, cross-server chat, and many more features. They plan to add lots more as they work on it during early access too, so it has us very excited here.

You can see some videos here showing what you can expect, and it looks fab:



The developers also mentioned they will pop us a few keys at release, so expect us to be able to cover it properly! You will need to buy it during early access, but once complete it will be free 2 play with cosmetic items purchasable, so no pay 2 win features. That's the type of thing we can get into bed with!

About the game
Storm United is a socially driven class based massively multiplayer First Person Shooter on top of an omnipresent clan foundation. Start your journey by choosing a recruiting clan, no players are left behind.

The clan's personal headquarter will serve you as a central communication hub where you can chat and get the latest news on the clan's objectives and victories while also being a place where you'll build useful infrastructures in a similar way strategy games works.

Get ready to wage war with other clans for resources on a globally shared intergalactic map. Build and break alliances, research or spy for technologies and produce new weapons and gear.

In addition to the ongoing galactic war, organised tournaments and events give you one more opportunity to prove your ultimate supremacy. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Of course, for me, FPS shooters have always been richly represented in the Linux world, even FOSS ones in most distros' repositories. I have Counter-Strike, Half-Life(s), Left4Dead, Metro:Last Light, Nuclear Dawn, Painkiller, Red Orchestra, and a few more. I think I have enough (for me, who isn't the most talented shooter player.

In other words, I have a lot of shooters (probably enough...), and a limited budget, and, with the number of Linux games today, the ability to be picky^_^ about which games I buy.

Geez, I never thought I'd be able to write that:D!

Personally I welcome shooters with deep social aspects that make playing with friends and joining friends worth it like this does. Rather than bland shooters with different game-modes.

Looks interesting. Always good to see devs answering questions on sites. I fired a few questions off to them via their site, will let you guys know the response.

Awesome. This will be the first real playable UE4 game on Linux I believe. or did I miss something? Can't wait to see how this pans out.. looks right up my alley!

Also thanks to the developer stopping by and answering some ?s, ALWAYS great to see the developers get involved with the community.

So is this PvP-only? I couldn’t find this information in the description.

Quoting: SkullyLiam the video isn't showing. Just got a big blank white space there.

EDIT: For anyone else with this. We worked out it's "https everywhere" plugin stopping them.
So disable plugin, or just go watch them elsewhere like I have.
i'm using https everywhere on chrome yet the video's still worked fine for me without disabling it
EDIT: nvm i didn't have the gamingonlinux site added to it :p

They plan to add PvE later on, right now focusing on PvP.

Oh wow this looks awesome, I wish I knew about this game sooner.
Really looking forward to trying it out

Thank you for your nice comments ^^

Quoting: coeseta1. What does the movement/aiming feels like in Storm United? Is it more like traditional fps games (Quake, UT, hldm,...) or is it more like in newer/tactical ones (CoD, BF,...).

2. Does the game also have something like outposts/cities to show of armor/weapon skins and other goodies, or to look for parties/chat with people like in other MMOs?

3. If the game releases for early access on 23rd of December on Steam, will it just be available for Windows or also Linux at that time? Because I would be more than glad to help with testing :)

Btw the videos look awesome :D

1. The movements have a Quake feeling in terms of movement fluidity and sensations but you'll need to think about your positioning like CS. We have put a lot of care in this, I think we've reached something really top notch sensation wise.

2. That's something we wanted to do originally but it is too much work for a small team like us. A place to chill and meeting people perhaps compatible with Oculus rift. This is something we'd be able to do if we're successful enough. I definitely agree it would be fantastic to see a futuristic city with neons and shops where you could buy crafting materials etc. We tried oculus in our levels and its absolutely stunning.

3. It should be available for PC Mac and Linux.

I will get in touch with gamingonlinux when we're ready to run the special Linux closed beta for you guys :D
