Splash Damage, the developer behind titles like Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, has announced a new game called Dirty Bomb. Sticking to what the developer knows, Dirty Bomb will be an online shooter. It’s only coming to PC and it’ll be free-to-play. If alarm bells aren’t going nuts by now, then also remember that Splash Damage made Brink, which they decline to remind you of in the reveal trailer for Dirty Bomb (after the jump).
Not much else is known about the game other than it’s set in London with many prominent landmarks making an appearance. There are also overtones of nuclear weaponry, but there are no mushroom clouds blooming over the cityscape in this trailer.
The multiplayer components of the game will be built on a new back-end system called Fireteam, which will allow developers to add features that will be propagated across all platforms that game appears on. It’ll also allow for things like micro-transactions, which is obviously where the whole free-to-play bit will come in with Dirty Bomb.
Splash Damage will be teaming up with publisher Warchest to develop Dirty Bomb and a whole lot of other multiplayer games across various platforms, including mobile. While Dirty Bomb is the first title from the two companies, you can expect more (such as RAD Soldier for mobile) to come soon.[youtube]0p_bQ5jIyNo[/youtube]
