Digital Legends Entertainment and GAMEVIL have announced the worldwide launch of Afterpulse™, a multiplayer third-person shooter that utilizes the latest mobile development technology to transport players into a post-apocalyptic urban battlefield. Developed by Digital Legends Entertainment and published by GAMEVIL, Afterpulse is now available for free download everywhere on App Store.
In addition to Apple’s Metal API and full 64-bit support, the game uses full physically based deferred rendering, HDR post processing and skeletal animations with ragdolls to create true-to-life movements and photorealistic lighting, shadows, smoke and crossfire.
“We are thrilled with this partnership that brings worldwide live operations expertise and a deep understanding of Asian markets. It is the right match to position and service Afterpulse as a product with global reach,” says Xavier Carrillo-Costa, CEO and Founder of Digital Legends Entertainment. “Learnings from four previous generations of shooters for mobile have allowed us to make key decisions for Afterpulse on camera, controls, enemies and combat, and to find the right balance between run and aim action. With Afterpulse we have achieved a genuine and definitive mobile shooter experience.”
On top of its top-notch graphics, Afterpulse also boasts enhanced online matchmaking for live free-for-all battles and 8-player Team Deathmatch games. Using zone server technology, each match is made with optimal player experience in mind.
GAMEVIL USA President Kyu Lee says, “We knew as soon as we saw Afterpulse that it would push the boundaries of mobile gaming. It not only has realistic graphics, but it also provides the perfect environment for a competitive online community. As a third-person shooter, the game is new territory for GAMEVIL, but our experience with online multiplayer games made this a natural fit.”
When players aren’t battling in multiplayer matches, they can expand and personalize their arsenal and hone in their shooting skills through quick two-and-a-half minute training sessions. Players can choose their own battle style with seven types of weapons – Handgun, Shotgun, Assault, SMG, LMG, Sniper and Rockets – and power up, combine and evolve their firearms for limitless possibilities.
Afterpulse is available now on App Store worldwide.
