Lionsgate and Apps Ministry announced the pre – release of their latest mobile FPS, Deploy and Destroy: Ash vs ED. The game is available on selected Android and iOS device starting from today, but the Android version was pushed on the Play Store on a small door. Anyway this brand new free to play FPS game looks quite good and the developers are promising continuous support.
Deploy and Destroy: Ash vs ED.
The game is pretty much what you would expect from a modern multiplayer FPS game in real time. Thanks to Lionsgate’s robust library of IP, players can craft characters from many different franchises. Ash vs Evil Dead and The Divergent Series, as well as original creations from the new Deploy and Destroy brand.
“Deploy and Destroy brings together some of our most beloved franchises for a fast‐paced and competitive action spectacle. We’re thrilled to partner with Apps Ministry to give fans and FPS players around the world a unique experience they’ve yet to see on mobile,” said Peter Levin, President of Interactive Ventures, Games & Digital Strategy at Lionsgate.
Deploy and Destroy is mainly focused on multiplayer action experience in real time. Right now, there are two modes available, eight‐player deathmatch and team deathmatch. Each player will be able to level up their character, unlock weapons and armor pieces thus improving their chances for a piece of the cake.
“Lionsgate has given us the opportunity to create the kind of rich multiplayer action experience we’ve always wanted to play on mobile. Deploy and Destroy is designed from the ground up to look and handle great on handheld devices with full 3D environments and pick‐up‐and‐play touchscreen controls,” said Apps Ministry Founder Vadim Shilov. “Teaming up with a forward‐looking company with such a strong record of partnerships in video games has been a fantastic experience.”
That’s about it for now, the final release date was not announced, but the pre-release version can be downloaded from the link below. Keep in mind that the game is quite demanding and requires at least Snapdragon 8xx chipset, or newer variation of the SD 6xx (or equivalent). There is no doubt that the game will be optimized more, including the somewhat clunky control scheme.
