The first-person shooter will be available to purchase directly from the Exato Games website as well as across a handful of online digital retailers such as Desura, Green Man Gaming, Rain Digital Games and GamersGate.
Currently, Steam has no plans to carry Guncraft. However, with its steadily growing popularity through largely positive user-generated reviews and the fact that it is currently in the top 25 games on Steam Greenlight, a campaign where users can vote on what games they want to see carried on Steam, it would not be a surprise to see Guncraft pop up on Steam news feed in the coming months.
The beta test version of Guncraft will be available for free via Exato Games’ website all the way up until the day of its official release. Guncraft will be priced at $15 when it releases, ensuring players will not have to break the bank in order to enjoy the title. The open beta for the game began last year and will continue through July 11.
Gamers interested in playing Guncraft will need a DirectX 10 compatible card in order to play.
Exato Games stated the developer has a commitment to providing Guncraft players on-going content updates. Not much has been announced thus far, but players can expect to receive new maps and ridiculously fun gameplay modes through frequent updates for Guncraft.
Guncraft is a voxel-style first-person shooter best described as a cross between Minecraft and Call of Duty. The game has shooter elements such as kill streak rewards, a full arsenal of weapons and various gameplay modes with different objectives but is set entirely in a pixelated box universe that boasts fully destructible environments and construction elements that players can customize to every extent even in the middle of a firefight.
