Sniper: Ghost Warrior dev announces World of Mercenaries

Free-to-play Unreal FPS from City Interactive.

City Interactive, the Polish developer behind Sniper: Ghost Warrior, has announced World of Mercenaries, a new free-to-play PC FPS powered by Unreal Engine 3.

There's not a great deal of detail on exactly what to expect, but City has promised "a skill based competitive FPS with stunning graphics, fluid controls, customisable weapons and focus on teamwork". Have a gander at some concept art below.

There's no word on a release date either, but a closed beta is expected to go live soon.

"Our veteran team is comprised of some of the most devoted FPS fans in the world and we're excited to use our knowledge and experience to fuse the best elements of previously released games in the genre with new and exciting advancements," commented executive producer Bogdan Oprescu.

"Our closed beta program will be an integral part of the development process for World of Mercenaries, as it is our goal to deliver a game made by, for and with FPS fans.

"We are shaping the future of competitive FPS, and are fully confident it will be achieved with the enthusiasm and help of our beta testers."

It's not the only project currently ongoing at City - it's roped in former Codemasters man Stuart Black to work on a World War 2 shooter called Enemy Front.
