First details of Euro Combat Arms

Teaser site promotes free MMO FPS.

Korean online gaming specialists Nexon have torn the wrapper off the official website for its free-to-play MMO FPS for PC, Combat Arms, which launches in Europe later this year.

The website plays host to the teaser trailer for the game, and a handful of setting and gameplay details: it's set in a near future, where a new Cold War between coalitions of rich and poor countries follows the collapse of an interntaional federal government.

Promising realism, fast gameplay, accessibility and a deep system of weapon customisation and tuning, Combat Arms will run on relatively low-spec machines: 2.4GHz Pentium 4, 512MB RAM, and a GeForce FX5600 or similar graphics card are the recommended specs, with minimum specs being 1GHz Pentium 3, 256MB RAM and a GeForce 2 MX.

Nexon recently announced that Combat Arms Europe would go into closed beta testing in October, ahead of launch towards the end of the year.
