Burstfire’s tactical shooter gives players one life per game

If you only had one life in a FPS match, how would it change your playstyle? Think about the implications of such a rule carefully because this is the premise of new multiplayer shooter Burstfire.

Made by ex-Hawken devs, Burstfire is a 5v5 tactical shooter in which every player has one life per round. This is done with the hope of promoting strategic thinking and a slower, more nail-biting pace. Players aren’t restricted as to the weapons they use and can utilize tools and ingenuity to alter the battlefield and create new paths to objectives.

The game is currently accepting alpha signups on its website.
