Game developers Jagex has just announced the Steam launch of its team multiplayer FPS title - Block N Load. To celebrate, the game launches straight into a Steam Free Weekend. Which means gamers with a Steam account can immediately jump into the constructing, attacking, defending and destroying action that this online 5v5 shooter has to offer (for a limited time of course).

For those unfamiliar with the game, it's a fast-paced and eccentric FPS romp, with being able to construct strategically placed block towers and buildings proving just as important as attacking enemies in the multiplayer areas.  

Added to Block N Load’s creative gameplay and ever-evolving arenas, gamers can choose from six uniquely styled launch heroes and a wide range of blocks to use in game. Jagex says, "players will discover the pros, perils and pratfalls of different team make-ups and block load-outs as they take on their opponents. Tunnel under the map, sky-bridge over it, blow it up, build it over, team up, build traps and epic defences - the options are endless and your combat tactics are everything."

David Solari, vice president of Block N Load added that, “we’ve tried to do something different with Block N Load. We wanted to make a game where building is as important as bullets, where smarts are as important as skills, and where players could contribute to their team in their way.” Furthermore, he adds that “we can’t wait to see the creativity and invention of those that play Block N Load now that it’s live. Today’s launch is only the beginning. We have a player first mentality, and we look forward to an exciting journey with the players as the game evolves.”

Block N Load is available to purchase from the Steam store, with a 15% discount available during the launch week. For further information on Block N Load, visit the game’s official website.
