XField Paintball Studio announced that XField Paintball 3 is now available for PC via Steam. XField Paintball 3 is a fast-paced, tactical multiplayer first-person shooter game that challenges players to lead their team to victory in 5v5 matches.
In XField Paintball 3, players use coordination, communication, and marksmanship to win matches. Winning takes team dynamics, strategy, and tactics as well as individual skill. An understanding of the parabolic arcs of paintballs that give the game an entirely different physics model from most shooter games is also important. Paintballs curve as they move toward their target, allowing players to rain down shots on players even if they have total cover—changing normal shooter game tactics. How the team covers the map to dominate key routes and execute cross-fire attacks is critical, as is prompt situation assessment, active movement, and swift decision making.
For the first time outside of official league tournaments, paintball fans can enjoy the authentic experience of battling to lead their team to victory on the same arena maps played by the pros. XField Paintball 3 presents PC gamers with an exciting new type of multiplayer FPS competition with unique parabolic paintball physics that change the way cover works in the context of dynamic team strategy and fast-paced matches that reward teamwork as much as shooting skill.
Before each match, a captain is randomly selected to lead each team. The captain quickly sets the team strategy and assigns the roles of Rusher, Shooter, and Tactician to the five players. Each role gets certain bonuses—for instance, the Rusher gets enhanced speed—and each plays a different tactical role. In-game communication is handled via pre-scripted button presses with a unique twist: Each communication costs a certain number of communication points, and points are limited for each match so players must choose carefully. Once the match starts, the action goes quickly with the winning team being the first to eliminate all adversaries, hit the buzzer on the enemy team’s side of the field, or have the best position at the end of round.
XField Paintball 3 is available for $29.99/£24.99/€29.99.
