Starboard Side: Navy Field 2 Open Beta Announced
One of the most impressive things to come out of World War 1 and 2 was the great navy's of each country. Yet these fleets rarely saw combat against enemy fleet's of equal size and power. Instead they were usually relegated to bombarding enemy installations on the side of mountains and protecting convoy routes. With the announcement of Navy Field 2's open beta launch, players will be transported back in time in order to relieve the navy's glory days and take control of the immense firepower they had at their disposal.
Naturally, because we are all gamers this often results in large swaths of burning wreckage strewn across the game's 64 player maps. Our carelessness in regards to the live's of the NPCs which pilot our ships is a stark contrast to how the navy actually operates, but this is a game about sinking ships not idle diplomacy and strategic bombardment! Still the game does have a strategic element to it that doesn't involve just throwing hordes of ships at each other all at once. According to Kent Jeong, Director at SD EnterNet, the development studio behind Navy Field 2 "the game offers a balanced Rock-Paper-Scissors mechanic whereby each vessel has unique strengths and weaknesses".
Players will be able to take their game of Battleship to the next level starting on April 18th, when Nexon launches the open beta for Navy Field 2. The open beta is set to feature many famous mission locales including Dover, Midway and the Solomon-Isles all of which will use historically accurate fleets to capture the atmosphere of the time. Players can also expect two game modes at launch including a traditional Deathmatch whereby points are scored for each destroyed ship, and 'Base Occupation' where players must occupy the enemy's base for a certain time period.
Full steam ahead!
