Xbox and PlayStation Hint Fringe Wars Will Be Multi-Platform
ChinaJoy expo is to China what E3 is to the West. It's the country's annual giant gaming convention attended by all the top publishers, developers and hardware makers you would expect to see at any Western event.
Oasis games announced a multiplayer MOBA-inspired space action combat game a few months back titled Fringe Wars. The game seeks to be "Dreadnought meets Fractured Space" and was announced for PC back in early June.
At this year's ChinaJoy, however, a peculiar thing happened. Oasis Games showcased Fringe Wars on the Unity stage -- which was expected given its being developed using the Unity engine. But what was unexpected was that both Microsoft and Sony invited Fringe Wars to present the game on their main stages as well.
No official announcement about Fringe Wars being cross-platform has been made -- and yet the game gave presentations for two of the biggest console platforms. This seemingly hints that the game, which is currently in alpha, will be coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 when it launches in the Fall this year.
Fringe Wars seeks to take Dreadnought's combat, Fractured Spaces' objective-based gameplay, and add a never-before-seen layer of progression and visual customization with a module system. This module system looks to directly change abilities, stats and the visual look of any ship class. Each ship will have several customizable modules that players will be able to switch in and out depending on their preferred playstyle.
On top of the customization, the game boasts 5v5 multiplayer with a several different game-modes that seek to add variety and replayability to the game. The game is currently in alpha development and has stated that a closed beta on Steam will be coming over the next couple of months.
