Splash Damage announced that they were working on Dirty Bomb by releasing a video that didn't show any in-game action but led me to predict, confidently, that the game would involve people shooting one another on the streets of London. The pre-alpha video below sidled up to me this afternoon and said, 'hey, you were right. Just look at how much those people are shooting on another on the streets of London.' I nodded because they really were shooting each other a lot. Occasionally something exploded. Probably a bomb, although I think it was of the 'clean' variety. The sort that only disintegrates people within the immediate blast radius.
Judging by the signage, the enemy territory that those barricades are containing appears to be on the brink of the Thames, not far from the Globe Tavern.
If you didn't throw your monitor through the window after reading that last sentence, perhaps you'd like to sign up for a chance to be in the Dirty Bomb closed beta when it begins?
