Mercenary Ops, a New Third-Person PC Shooter, Announced

by Charles PowersApril 17, 2012

Epic Games China, more appropriately known as Yingpei Games, Ltd, announced today their upcoming project, Mercenary Ops, a PC-exclusive shooter coming out this summer. Powered by the Unreal engine and featuring Nvidia’s PhysX, Mercenary Ops combines tactical gameplay, fast-paced action, and character customization.

[pullquote_left]Killing became our business[/pullquote_left]Boasting advanced covering mechanics and an active reload system, Mercenary Ops is already being hailed as a blend between Counter-Strike and Gears of War. The game will feature destructible cover, precise control and aiming abilities, an encumbrance system, and more. Players will be able to utilize the game’s deep customization features by gaining experience through “killing enemies and completing difficult mission objectives.”

“In a third-person shooter, the online multiplayer aspect of the game always seems to be an after-thought to the single-player experience,” said Mercenary Ops Producer, Jason Sharp. “Because of this, we decided to concentrate on creating an entirely different online experience by looking at every facet of game design from that perspective. This decision resulted in a unique style of play that enhanced traditional tactical combat by requiring players to have a quicker, more aggressive attitude.”

Edit: We’ve been informed that Epic Games is the literal translation for Yingpei Games, which is a separate entity from the Epic Games (Gears of War) that we know.

    I’ve been playing Black Ops since it came out and I was wondering if anyone would like to play with me as it’s almost impossible to play ground war without running into a team, not to mention playing mercenary deathmatch gets boring. I don’t have a mic, but I’m just looking for people to play with regularly.

    Since so many Gay men want to join the Military, why can’t they join the Mercenaries that the Pentagon uses as Combat Forces.

    Last I checked the Black Ops Mercenaries don’t have any Sexual issues like women can’t kill people or if your Gay you can’t kill people.

    i want a 4 player multiplayer and campaign and i want a radar. and silencers on our lancers or red laser pointers. what about radars. and i thought of a great idea. what about customizing our gears? like coloring them black instead of blue or gray?

    the point is, will they listen?

  • Jason

    Because the Youtube videos looks a lot less gory then the original Gears of War. Sure there are more ways to kill people but the game in general looks much less gory then the first Gears of war which concerns me. Haha.

    Does anyone know if its just the quality of the vids on Youtube or if the game is really less messy then the first. I would like to know before I preorder it. Thanks.

    im really hoping it will be as good as the last games. what are your opinions on the games and do you think sly 4 will be good?

  • Peter

    He says that they can
    – Make great games
    – Their games have really good graphics
    – Unique, original storylines
    – They make millions of dollars each year

    He also told me if I wanted to publish a game, he says go to Epic Games.

    Is he right?

  • Bryan J

    Just write a list of them all because Gears of War 3 has special unlockables if you’ve played other Epic Games so if you could write a list of them all. Any platform would do thanks. :)

    10 Points for having all of them!

  • Erin

    Hi! My husband really wants Star Wars Epic Duels but we don’t shop on e-bay and Board Game Geek has them for like $50 and we can’t afford that. Has any of the game companies made the same game out of any other movies that have come out recently like Harry Potter or Transformers or anything like that? Thanks.
