Description

War Rock is an on-line shooter with a free-to-play commercial model. The game revolves around the fictional modern day conflict between the NIU rebels and the Derbaran Military.

There's three different map types available.
  • Close Quarters Combat allows players to fight in small maps for up to 16 players.
  • Urban Ops features medium sized maps for up to 24 players.
  • Battle Group features large maps for up to 32 players.
Game modes consist of Explosive and Deathmatch. Explosive can only be played in Close Quarters Combat and is similar as Counter Strike. Both teams have to place a bomb on enemy grounds and if things go wrong quickly defuse the other players' bomb. When players die they have to sit out until the next round starts.

Deathmatch is more similar to Battlefield 1942. Both teams have a number of points which decreases when players die or flags are captured. When the points reach zero the team loses. Players can re-spawn indefinitely. Like the Battlefield series War Rock not only allows the player to play as a simple infantry soldier but also to enter and exit vehicles at his/her whim. Included vehicles range from tanks and boats to helicopters and jet planes.

The player's character gains experience points and rises in character ranking. A better ranking gives access to new weapons which can be leased for a period of thirty days.

The game allows players to pay for a premium membership. This membership earns the players more experience points per kill as well as a steady income that can be used to lease equipment. They also receive access to new content one month sooner than non-subscribers. When creating a server premium subscribers also are the only ones allowed to change the default game settings. There are multiple subscriptions, which give more or less experience bonuses and income.
