U4iA Games, the new indie game studio founded by former Activision Call of Duty and Guitar Hero execs Dusty Welch and Chris Archer, announced that it has entered into an agreement with Redmond, WA-based BrickArms to bring several weapons from its upcoming browser-based, first-person-shooter game, Offensive Combat, to life as replicas for two-inch, building toy mini-figures.
U4iA will also add a selection of BrickArms’ most popular building toy weapons into the game as virtual items for players to use in their ongoing mission to annihilate the competition. The first mini-figure weapons—including the Battle Axe and Auger Shotgun, as well as in-game items—will be available later this fall.
Offensive Combat features competitive multiplayer action, enabling players to harness their skills and use their creativity and ingenuity to win the ultimate mash-up of first-person-shooters. Offensive Combat will open up its beta program this fall. In the meantime, players can sign up at www.offensivecombat.com for a chance to enter the closed beta.
