After a really short open beta – what was it, three days only? -, Nexon is shutting down the servers today and getting ready for the official launch of the free-to-play online shooter Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies. This multiplayer FPS will launch on October 7th and the studio is preparing plenty of rewards and welcome back packages to those who participated in the open beta. It’s a very short window to fix some bugs and, as the studio acknowledged, “problems came up, and we’re not going to pretend they weren’t frustrating”.
Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is the Western version of Counter-Strike Online 2, which mixes the classic game with new maps, weapons and, of course, zombie modes. We won’t pretend that the game doesn’t feel extremely dated, as you can see in our Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies first look gameplay video.
