CJ Games Global has announced that its free-to-play, multiplayer FPS District 187: Sin Streets will leave beta and launch on 20 November. By the sounds of things, CJ Games is aiming for the e-sports market, especially with the competitive team-vs-team mode called ‘Street Fight’.
“Street Fight is a weaponized tug-of-war, with teams competing in ranked matches and fighting for control of the city” says producer Jon-Enée Merriex, toying with a knife and eying the back alleys, “we’re excited to have this ready at launch as we start to venture out into the e-sports communities.”
You can read all about (and I do mean all about) ‘Street Fight’ in this lengthy blog post. Registrations are being taken right now for the ‘Street Fight’ beta, which will begin on 12 November (and presumably end on 20 November, since that’s when the game comes out).
Signing up requires visiting, which, infuriatingly enough, also requires you giving them a ‘like’ on Facebook to even look at the page. If you don’t have a Facebook account, you’re presumably out of luck.
Here’s some District 187 in action. Sure looks like a multiplayer FPS to me.
