In development for the PC platform, Runescape developer Jagex is working on all-new ground with Block N Load. The title, now entering Beta phase testing, combines the addictive nature of Minecraft with tower defense elements in an action FPS environment.

With key features including ever-evolving battlefields, diverse heroes and intelligent, creative tactics, Block N Load is a strategic shooter action title where building and blocks are as powerful as bullets and smarts are as important as shooter skills. Build up your defenses in every match, as players shoot and build towards enemy positions, leaving no match the same as the one before. With a strong mix of heroes in full combat, defensive and supportive roles, every strategy can be dynamic and viable – leaving a role for each type of gamer.

“We’ve had huge interest in Block N Load since we announced the game just a few weeks ago, so it’s great to be able to confirm that it has now reached the important closed beta milestone. For this we’re going to distribute a substantial number of keys directly and through partners, and are looking forward to receiving player feedback as they get involved with our range of madcap heroes, such as Doctor Eliza, Cogwheel, Sarge, as well as all the other blockheads.” – David Solari, Vice President of Block N Load.

As a five-on-five team-based online first-person shooter, choose your hero, select your block load-out, and get in game to fight it out in highly destructible arenas. Apply your tactics and strategy in fast paced game play in closed Beta starting up this month by signing up on the official website.
