It only took a couple of releases for me to figure out Zombie Studios development cycle. The studio’s first major title, Blacklight Tango Down, did mediocrely as an indie-priced shooter. But Zombie’s rework and subsequent re-release as Blacklight Retribution turned the franchise into a Free-to-Play FPS powerhouse.Now Zombie Studios is at it again, taking elements from their second shooter, Special Forces: Team X, and giving the series a fresh coat of F2P.




The result is Phantom Army, a new third person shooter which trumpets its fluid movements, cover-based combat, and randomized arena layouts. Below sits the game’s teaser trailer:

Pretty nondescript right? The game seems to almost knowingly touch on our “hey this feels like TF2” bone. Also, why do they call these guys ‘phantoms’ if all they care about is the body count? Wouldn’t phantoms want to disappear and appear without being noticed? Seems like a huge body count would be grounds for drawing suspicious inquiries.

    First look at the cover of the player “huh, counter strike?”.
    Then down to the comments, and my eyes catch GMA’s comment.. tf2 sucks? p_p lol’d ty.
    Then i watched the vid and indeed… does chew on tf2 bones allright, so basically those zombie guys checked some games took best parts and put them together in this game? or at least tried to, well, nothing new here, let’s see how that turned out.. if i even remember this games name by the time it’s out that is.

    Crappy game. Guns are all really unbalanced and there’s practically no late game content. Really laggy servers too

      Soo… you’ve played a game that’s not even released yet?… Right… Same goes for ExHuman, can idiots stop pre-judgining a game that’s NOT EVEN OUT YET.

      • waitwhoisthis.. on October 28, 2013

        I think that ExHuman meant to say “Not a FAN of fps”

      • ExHuman on October 29, 2013

        As much as pre-judgining is dumb, you would do well to read (and understand) the thread before posting.

      • Enegel on October 29, 2013

        that means that he played special forces: team x.. which is preaty like this Phantom Army.
        And yeah .. it’s a crapy game!
