Free-to-play online third-person shooter Loadout arriving on Steam January 31

Posted on January 20, 2014 AT 11:47am

Loadout, developer Edge of Reality’s free-to-play online third-person shooter, will make the jump from Early Access to full Steam title next week, the company announced.

“First and foremost, we would like to sincerely thank everyone who has been a part of the Closed Beta and Early Access programs!” reads the launch date announcement post on the game’s official website. “Your support has been tremendous in shaping the development of Loadout, and feedback from the community will continue to be vital moving forward. The team has learned a lot over the course of the last year, and we are extremely grateful to have the chance to [be] able to present Loadout to everyone!”

Edge of Reality describes Loadout as an “outrageous multiplayer shooter that’s all about building guns and having fun.” The title touts “billions” of combinations of customizable weaponry, such as constructing a gun that shoots syringes full of healing fluids or remote controlled EMP missiles.

Prior to developing Loadout, Edge of Reality primarily handled Nintendo 64 ports of Tony Hawk games and handled the console ports of Dragon Age: Origins and the PS3 port of Mass Effect.

Loadout hits Steam proper on January 31, 2014.
