Sony has announced a new *cue Imperial March.mp3* free-to-play game called Guns Up. The game is something of a mix between a real time strategy and tower defence with a dash of humour thrown in for good measure. It is certainly giving off a Cannon Fodder vibe, which is sure to please the old people who still know what Cannon Fodder is (i.e. me).
It seems that the dreaded F2P curse hasn’t hit this game, with developers promising that it will be playable from beginning to end without spending a cent. Microtransactions will be for cosmetic and minor stat upgrades only, with nothing that could be even remotely considered pay-to-win. If this is the case, then perhaps players can look past the dirty word that is ‘F2P’ and embrace what Guns Up is offering because it looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Guns Up is coming to PS4, PS3 and Vita later in the year and will support cross save so your ballistic carnage can follow you wherever you go. For the price, this is a game that is at least worth the hit to your download limit to check it out.
