Epic Sort Of Returns To The PC With Mercenary Ops


It's not like Gears of War developer Epic Games to do anything quietly: they've announced games by chainsawing their way onto stage. But there's a lack of fireworks and farming equipment in the unveiling of Mercenary Ops, a new third-person shooter coming out in Summer exclusively on the PC. There's not even a balloon. It's a Gears of War-ish cover-based shooter made by Epic Games China, with the teams apparently fighting for control Lowallistan on the Duckandshoot Peninsula, in the world of Crouchtopia. Thirty seconds of trailer is below.

Yeah, I made those names up, but there's nothing else to go on so far. Like I said: quiet. It kind of reeks of free-to-play to me, but that's just me turning the handle on the speculation klaxon, filling the silence with the unpleasant screech of assumption.
