Aeria Games has announced the latest addition to its portfolio of freemium MMOs, a 2D side-scrolling shooting game from GNI Soft called Metal Assault. The game is slated to enter closed beta this spring. Players can now begin signing up for the closed beta at this site. Players who are accepted into the closed beta will be notified by email. Metal Assault will feature solo missions, co-op missions, team missions, and 8v8 deathmatch gameplay modes. Players can customize their vehicle and obtain vehicles that are only usable by teams, like tanks. The game will also feature customizable avatars.
Metal Assault is only one of several new MMOs that Aeria Games plans to publish in 2011. Other titles include Lime Odyssey and an untitled Unity MMOFPS from Brazilian studio Aquiris Games. Aeria Games published a vast portfolio of freemium games, including virtual world titles like Hello Kitty Online. Aeria Games recently opened a new regional office in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Aeria Games’s portal serves over 15 million registered users, up from 10 million registered users around this time last year.
