Mercenary Ops Trailer Has A Tentacle Monster

Granted, it has other things too - most of them somehow involving bullets, cover, explosions, or blood-spattered teddy bears sleeping in the rubble of a dystopian, corporation-run nation that's forgotten how to hug. Mercenary Ops, of course, hails from the stop 'n' pop artists formerly known as Epic Games China (now Yingpei Games, but still affiliated), with the twist being that it's PC-only and quite enamored with fancy physics. Also, it's apparently more grounded in real-world tech than obvious wind beneath is veiny, rippling wings Gears of War, but - on the other hand - there's a tentacle monster. So you be the judge. Check out the full trailer after the break.

The game's prepping to launch this summer, which pretty much fits its Hollywood blockbuster motif. Honestly, it doesn't look the least bit revolutionary, but the prospect of eight player co-op carries an ever-so-slight stench of intrigue. Fingers crossed, though, that Epic's real PC-exclusive turns out to be a bit more interesting.
