Today, the company responsible for everyone's favorite large military vehicle battle games, Wargaming, announced a new third-person shooter titled Caliber. The new game is intended for players 16 and over and focuses on team cooperation. It features a standard four-player team format with players taking up the roles of assault, support, medic, and sniper.

Any shooter fan should easily be familiar with the setup. Players can choose between a variety of international special forces, including Poland's GROM, the US Navy SEALs, and the Kommando Spezialkräfte.

The game will officially be presented to players for the first time at Gamescom. So, if you're there and interested, be sure to check it out. European players can also hit up the game's website and register to get more information.

**Update** Wargaming added a note to the site stating the game is indeed free-to-play. So the post has been changed to reflect that.

Third person... It will have the same issues that the f2p Ghost Recon game did if anyone remember that. People camping behind corners or low cover till they see you but you cant see them.

Everyone's favorite?
Maybe it was in the past, now though?
I have my doubts.
And indeed, 3rd person is... sh!t, to be honest.
It allows for a much larger field of view which is, in my opinion, plain cheating.

Actually, we do know it's free - it says so right on their webpage: "Free2play game from the creators of World of Tanks". :)
Anyway, it looks like it'll be at least worth a try.
