Upcoming multiplayer strategy game coming soon for Mac and PC

Brain Candy has released new screenshots for its upcoming PC/Mac squad-based multiplayer strategy game, Fray.

Here’s more about Fray from Brain Candy:

“In 2098 the world and all its resources are controlled by three mega-corporations vying for control of the Earth. All human interaction is confined to the realm of virtual reality modules. One such virtual reality is the combat module Fray.

In Fray players will control a squad of four soldiers of unique classes, weapons and abilities. Choose your allegiance to one of the three mega-corporations, win, and be rewarded with allegiance points and special items. Once in Fray, players will assign moves and actions to each of their squad members. At the end of each timed round, or after all players have entered their moves, the action will resolve and play out in cinematic fashion. Keen observation, tactics, and the wisdom of experience will help you predict your opponent’s moves and anticipate their attacks and counters.”

The pre-order early access beta of Fray, which becomes available sometime in Q4 2011, will include the first environment, several playable maps, several game modes, and offers players the unique ability to influence the game design and provide feedback directly to the developers. The beta will offer unlimited play, with weekly updates and special community events. Players who pre-order will then receive the full game immediately upon release in Q1 2012 along with a second copy of the game to give away.
