TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NEXON Co., Ltd. (Nexon) (3659.TO), a global leader in Virtual Worlds, today announced the March 7 start of a global closed-beta test for THE FINALS, the first game from the company’s Embark Studios. The highly anticipated first-person shooter game will be available for a two-week beta test, featuring team-based, free-to-play action that pushes environmental dynamism, destruction, and player freedom to their limits.
In THE FINALS, players compete in virtual re-creations of two iconic locations: the skyscrapers high above downtown Seoul and old-town Monaco on the French Riviera. The beta includes a practice range where contestants can test weapons, gadgets, movement and, of course, destruction. There will be casual play as well as ranked tournaments, complete with leaderboards for players to climb. Throughout the two-week event, contestants can unlock weapons, gadgets, tons of cosmetic items and more.
THE FINALS remains in development and beta participants should anticipate plenty of tweaks, changes, and additions based on their feedback. It’s a game that brings experimental features – like server-side movement and destruction – and many of these will take iteration to create the best possible Virtual World experience.
