Players in Nexon America’s Combat Arms can now video record their daring exploits in the free-to-play online first person shooter and immediately download their videos to YouTube to share with the world. As part of the new content update called “Operation: Dredge,” Combat Arms players can, with a push of a few buttons and an account on YouTube, capture video, store it, then upload it.
The video capture capabilities are imbedded into a player’s character information window. Prior to a fire fight, players simply set the video quality levels and format, enter the game, and with a press of a button, capture the destruction and mayhem that makes Combat Arms attractive to more than 4 million players. A quick upload later, and the player can show off amazing attacks, or a fantastic final kill to other soldiers, family and friends. For details on this new feature, to go: http://bit.ly/aWHXAw.
Operation: Dredge also brings a new map to the Combat Arms battle zone. The new map, Dredge, is an elaborate system of sewer tunnels below the city in which terrorists have planted bombs. The underground map brings combatants to close quarters, and provides ample hiding places to launch sneak attacks, plant bombs or duck for cover. Players can use a variety of modes in this map, including elimination, elimination pro, one man army, last man standing, capture the flag, spy hunt, search and destroy, and bombing run.
While stalking around the new map, players will notice an updated user interface, or Heads Up Display (HUD). Players are now able to completely turn off their HUD, which will help when capturing video. The new HUD shows off new kill effects and sleek new display features, such as ammo counts for weapons not in use and new map animations of fellow teammates.
As usual, Combat Arms is bringing a set of nasty new weapons to the already bursting number of items in the game’s arsenal. The new guns entering the fray are the family of FS200 weapons. The FS2000 is a bullpup model firearm designed to allow a grenade launcher to be attached. It offers enhanced convenience when firing, as empty cartridges are automatically moved to the muzzle. Players can also enter battle with the exclusive F2000, which is designed for the Special Forces and comes with a high-magnification scope and a cover that provides protection from debris.
