The third-person online action game has a distinct Team Fortress flavour to it, with the addition of melee combat.

Developed by Bethesda’s in-house Battlecry Studios, Battlecry has been in beta for Australia and New Zealand for a while and is now entering global beta. You can sign up for it here.

Battlecry will be free to play and is scheduled for a full release on PC later this year. Here’s the E3 trailer, which reveals a new faction.
