    Mercenaries

    Welcome to the Open Beta! This new version of the game comes with its set of additional content compared to the Closed Beta version. Please note that some of these features were already available to players who participated in the Stress Test and the Technical Beta Test.

    On top of the new content, thanks to our previous beta testers and the community's continuous stream of feedback received, we tweaked some features of the game to get closer to the final release version.

    Please keep in mind that we are still in Open Beta and look forward to receiving even more feedback from our community to improve the overall Ironsight experience!

    4 new PVP maps

    Presented during the Technical Beta Test, you can now enjoy the 4 new PVP maps on top of the 4 original maps present in the Closed Beta!

    The Hugo International Airport was devastated by the Tsunami. A new microbe from the Jupiter Institute was lost here during the disaster while being transported to Germany. The microbe was later discovered to improve the production of Trinitium, so guess who got involved.

    A top EDEN engineer on route to a secret assignment was stranded on a construction site when the helicopter transporting him suffered a malfunction and crashed. The NAF sent its forces to seize the sensitive data he carried, while EDEN sent its own PMCs to protect him and the aforementioned data.

    An island somewhere off the northwest coast of Africa. OC Industries, long rumored to be connected to the Mafia, had a secret robotics laboratory here before the Tsunami. Both NAF and EDEN found it however, and quietly sent their PMCs to take control of it.

    The NAF's Black Sea Fleet is blockading EDEN's main Russian port. Intelligence sources confirmed illegal Trinitium transactions taking place there and as a response, the NAF sends its PMCs to seize the port. 

    Resource Takeover: a new PVP mode

    Also showcased in Tech Beta test, you will be able to play a new PVP mode added to the CBT roster.
