Splash Damage Ltd. – is pleased to announce that they have joined forces with FACEIT, the leading competitive gaming platform, to integrate a new competitive ecosystem for fast-paced, free to play shooter, Dirty Bomb.
Starting today, Dirty Bomb players from Europe and North America will be able to compete in Hubs on FACEIT. Recently introduced to the FACEIT platform, Hubs aim to bring competitive communities together in a space where players can chat, compete in seasonal and special event leaderboards, and of course: Rise up and prove who the best players are.
Each region (EU and NA) will have their own Hub to ensure the best possible experience and create a space for players from their region to connect and challenge each other.
Once in-game, players will be presented with Drafting Mode which allows each player to select a single Mercenary out of a diverse roster of over 20 and allows for Captains to ban Mercs from the match. Only one of each Merc will be available per team which allows for fresh tactical choices to be played out on the battlefield. After Merc selection, the Captains pick two substitution Mercs, which all players can switch between in-game and to encourage more tactical gameplay, the matches will always have Friendly Fire on.
At the end of the match, players will be presented with the MVP lineup and a detailed stats screen. Winning matches or placing highly on the Hub Leaderboard will increase a player’s FACEIT Dirty Bomb skill level and will reward players with FACEIT Points, the platform’s currency which can be spent on FACEIT-themed Weapon Cards and an in-game Trinket in the FACEIT Shop.
“We strive to bring the FACEIT experience to new communities. The platform offers a competitive structure like no other where the community can come together to collaborate and compete.” said Michele Attisani, CBO & Co-Founder of FACEIT. “We’re also big fans of Splash Damage and the experiences they gave us through games like Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory which played a big part of my gaming career, so we’re excited to be working on Dirty Bomb and utilising our technology to provide players with more ways to play.”
“As a studio, we were born out of the competitive scene and we believe that clan and tournament play are some of the best experiences you can have.” said Richard Jolly, Co-Founder & CMO at Splash Damage. “Our partnership with FACEIT finally enables us to provide this same experience to all our Dirty Bomb players; through an expanded and fully integrated system and you’ll even have the chance to win prizes.”
