Batman: Arkham Origins dev Splash Damage reveals new Dirty Bomb trailer

Splash Damage is returning to its hardcore PC roots with the upcoming launch of Dirty Bomb. Here's some new info regarding the game.

Launch Embed

Splash Damage, best known for their previous work with Batman: Arkham Origins, Brink, and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, announced they were returning to their hardcore roots with Dirty Bomb back in 2012. Today, the developer has released a new trailer.

Dirty Bomb is being touted as a “fast-paced, asymmetrical team play shooter” where players will fight in a completely abandoned London, which suffered from an unknown disaster, leaving the International Crisis and Disaster Agency to clean up remnants from the disaster and decontaminate the city. Apparently, they failed. Now, Private Military Companies have moved in in an attempt to control what’s left of the city.

Dirty Bomb is a return to Splash Damage’s classic FPS PC feel that offers “run ‘n gun” action as well as asymmetrical team-play. Players will be able to choose from a wide variety of Mercenaries, such as the mini-gun wielding foul-mouthed bruiser Rhino, or Proxy, the more agile Merc who prefers to drop mines to take out her enemies. Each Merc has their own unique abilities and load-outs, ensuring players will find just the right character for their play style.

Dirty Bomb will have both 5v5 and 8v8 multiplayer matches available across two game modes: Objective and Stop-Watch. The game is free-to-play and will be released on PC in 2015.

      I really hope it's not another run to the front lines, maybe shoot something, push the cart 5 feet, die, then repeat that till the cart makes it to the end kind of game.

      I hate to say it, but it looks like Counter-Strike with less realistic textures and such. Kinda cartoon-y. The video did not do anything to make me think OMG, which is sad because these guys made the Batman games and those were OMG.

        They only made the last Batman (Origins), Rocksteady did Arkham Asylum, City, and Knight. Splash Damage are the Brink and Enemy Territory devs.

          Actually,Splash Damage only did the MP for Arkham Origins.The main campaign was done by WB Montreal.

          BTW,what's actually taking this game so long? It seems like it's been in alpha/beta for at least two years now.I know the content and maps can't be anything huge,so are they just working with a skeleton crew or what?

          I remember when it was Dirty Bomb,then they changed the name to Extraction,then wisely back to Dirty Bomb and at a point, they were trying to shill Founder's Packs for in excess of $300 US.I just looked on PC Gamers site and found old articles about the closed alpha way back in January of 2013 and a closed beta in the same year.

          This game is in what they refer to as "development hell",and I wouldn't be at all surprised if anyone that's followed this game even cares anymore.
