It is mind boggling how many free to play shooters have been or are being released this year. It seems like every few weeks a new shooter pops up to remind us that F2P shooters are the flavor of the year! We have had some decidedly good Free to Play shooters recently, with Planetside 2, Loadout, and Firefall among others in the works. But like bunnies in the wild, the more time we leave them alone the more F2P shooters seem to spring up into existence.
Now we have the new shooter Born to Fire from Aeria Games headed into closed beta. The shooter focuses on team-based action with 5 distinct classes each with their own unique weaponry and play styles. One such class, the Dual Gunner, moves around quickly and looks for opportunities to skirmish with their twin submachine guns while also serving as the team’s medic.
On the flip side of this we have the Point Man, which absorbs damage with their large riot shield and provides cover for the more offensive minded classes.
While the game is in closed beta you do not have to have a closed beta key to get in. I never understood why game companies insist on calling it a closed beta if it isn’t actually closed but that is besides the point. You can check out Born to Fire now by heading on over to the official site and signing up.
