I know, I know: when I first laid eyes on it, I thought it was too. The big guns, frequent explosions, and gruffly barked bits of military lingo, especially, all had me thrown. But nope, I have it on good authority that Merc Elite is in fact some kind of top-down army manshoot/MOBA amalgam. There are lanes and roles and towers (of a sort), but also guns, classes, free aim, and cover. I never thought I’d declare a modern military setting somewhat original in any genre, but well, there you go. Advance position past the break for a trailer. Oh, and maybe bring some earplugs.
