s-06-medNgmoco has posted new teaser materials for their upcoming first person shooter which is now called Eliminate. Previously known as LiveFire and then KillTest, it seems they've finally settled on a name for the game.

The game is cleverly set in a weapon manufacturer's testing arena where employees test their battlesuits and weapons in "the most realistic" situations. The game itself is an online deathmatch arena game which we had some hands on time with back in March.

This intro video explains how the game is structured. According to the video, players can play the game as much as they want, but there is a daily quota of "energy" that is used each time you play. As long as you have "energy", your kills will earn you in-game credits that can be used to purchase better gear.

If you are out of "energy", you can still play, but you won't earn these virtual credits. Energy is recharged daily, or if you're out, you can purchase energy at any time. Game pricing has not yet been announced.

    Didn't they previously say that the game would be free, but some items could be bought?

    • Rich

      To Derp:
      Yeah, but its been so long ever since they've done anything about it....

      i prefer the credits, only because if you want to waste money to play a virtual game, then i guess they get money, and it becomes unfair on how good people are just by how much money they spend..

      the trailer looks good, and the 'storyline' type of thing as you being an employee just sounds like fun...

      its about time they released a trailer for this game...

    That is an awesome way of keeping "newbs" from playing 24/7 getting gear that doesn't match their skill, (I'm looking at you Call of Duty 5). This way, you have a limited span of time each day that effects your rank and the rewards you earn. If you sucked all day during your ranked play, why would you deserve new guns? Reward the skill not the time spent.

    I imagine only players that are already phenomonal at the game will be spending money for energy. I wouldn't go and spend extra money on the game if there is no guarentee that I'll agauire more points for ungrades. I could buy more energy and lose all the rest of the matches, losing my investment, and I'm not trying to bet on whether or not I can get a better suit of armor on a game.

    hmm, this upgrade shit sounds weird, but hopefully it will have controls like sandstorm

    this whole energy thing looks absolutely stupid and i think it will ruin the game.
    and it look like the controls were 2 invisible sticks. they definately need to add a control system like sandstorm

    What the hack??!?

    The Energy thing is pretty smart. I bet they didn't want you to overheat and drain your devices batteries and such. So this way we play for a certain time. I think it's pretty clever.

    I don't think when you buy extra energy it costs real money...? I think it costs in game credits.. Unless the developer said it costs real money.

    Ngmoco should leave the name as livefire second I hope it's not $10 no game is worth that much especially if their charging for energies!

    Nice Trailer, but i really have to see the Game itself in Action before i can say anything about it. Currently there are so many Features unclear to me that i don't know in what direction Ngmoco wana go with that Game.

    If they add Content you have to Pay for to use or get Credits for the Game it better be 100% Stable otherwise it might be a Fiasco at the End.

    Let's hope that Ngmoco knows what they are Doing.

    Please don't change us real money to play a game for a bit more if they do it will be the biggest iPhone game tipoff in history because it could cost a forune if you get hooked on it, I really hope it's 'in game' credits you use, I would do that

    Looks awesome and I have a feeling I'll be clicking the "Where to find" button quite a bit even if I know what I'm doing. Just curious why they changed from a cool name like LiveFire or KillTest to something like Eliminate. Seems like a weird decision to me. EIther way looking foward to it.

    Ok, guys get real, this game is going to be amazing no matter how they present it. Trust me, even if you have to may 50 bucks for this game it will be worth it. Think about it this way, we've only had one other online 3-D fps (ifps) which sucked balls, so they can only go up from there. Look around, what good self respecting mmo doesn't have an option to pay money for bonuses, or even to play the game (WoW, runescape, FLYFF, Crossfire, etc.) so shutup and stop your whining it's like you expect developers to give away their quality games for free.

    • Dark NRG

      You are wrong.

      • Hirdsaw

        Do you have a reason for me being "wrong"? Like some supporting facts, that kinda stuff. Or are you just giving us your worthless opinion.

    • dragmor

      iMech is 3D and is 8 players real time online. thats a fact

    No you do NOT need to buy energy! It was CLEARLY stated in the video that you get credits by playing w/ energy which recharges everyday. With those credits you can "buy" energy and other upgrades. I wouldn't be surprised if they made an option to buy additional credits with real money. I bought sandstorm and I'm thinking this will be much better.

    I thought the name LiveFire was pretty good, though KillTest sounded generic and bland. Somehow they've managed to come up with something even more generic and bland. I sure hope other App Store developers don't take this approach, or we might see a racing game called "Drive", a Mario clone called "Jump", or a fighter called "Incapacitate".

    I know a game can still be good even with a lame name, but still...

    If Modern Combat is going to update with online multiplayer, then I'm probably gonna pass on this one and get Dungeon Hunter.

    The example that Hirdsaw gave doesn't exactly seem quite right. Yeah sure, you pay constantly for MMOs. This look like an MMO to you? If awesome games like F.A.S.T can provide free online multiplayer, why can't this? You're already paying to have the game itself, why the hell must you pay more to play it? I know you can play without energy, but it's really a stupid idea to make users pay so that their playtime would be worth anything. This obviously shows that the company doesn't give a damn about how whether their customers enjoy the game or not; they just want to suck money. Ngmoco just lost a lot of my respect, as well as make and surefire purchase a lot more questionable.

    • dragmor

      Yeah why can't they provide cheap online play like F.A.S.T, iMech, Dino Smash, and Bomber Online. All of the games I mentioned let you play for as long as you want why would they put in a play limit? Also most of these games are only $1 while I am sure that ngmoco will charge and arm and a leg for the game. Also if Modern combat plays its cards right it can own the online fps market. I will pass and read the reviews while I play Dungeon Hunter :)
