is a fast paced PvP shooter. Easy pick up and play, no complicated setups or rules: it’s kill or be killed!
A new form of energy was discovered 15 years ago. Clean, safe and abundant, it changed the course of civilization. It’s 2035 and a secret war surfaces for the first time as megacorporations fight for the control of the energy, hiring armies of highly skilled mercenary soldiers!
Select a role from one of the unique game characters, each with their own skill tree and weapon arsenal. On the full game you’ll be able to level up to unlock additional loadouts and weapon skins to show off your experience with it. Mercenaries are designed to compliment each other’s skills, but each is fully capable of delivering insane frags on the battlefield: no wimpy support classes, in Ballistic everyone is a killer!

There is ever a new way to kill your enemies in Ballistic.
Each character has two unique skill-trees designed to allow you great strategic and tactical advantages over your opponents: each has many options so make sure to try and come up with a build that fits your playstyle: Do you prefer to run and gun with extra damage for sprinting? Or take a more strategic approach and reveal enemies on the minimap for you and your friends?
Each level is crafted to deliver a unique atmosphere and allowing four gameplay modes. Starting from the 3 maps available at the start of the Early Access, we already have 9 maps to be released.

It happened faster than anyone could have predicted. Scientists found a bacterial moss living in the most extreme and remote places of the world that could do a strange form of photosynthesis, releasing Hydrogen in gaseous form as a byproduct. By means of artificial cultivation in large scale, H2 burning would fuel the world into a new era of clean energy with pure water as a byproduct. Seeing how their grasp on power would soon end, oil mega-corporations seized what control they had on global politics and made sure that this breakthrough be maintained under tight control.
The MFA has claimed a monopoly on this technology, regulating distribution, production and further research, claiming that this is the best way to provide everyone with access to it. Many other private parties do not agree with the terms of this monopoly, their opinion that only the free market can truly defend people's interest without the rampant corruption that runs in political organizations.
The war begun when mysterious mercenary strikes were launched on several MFA facilities across the globe, all related with MFA governmental activities. The MFA itself doesn’t want much information about their actions being divulged, so decided to fight back hiring their own mercenary forces who could neutralize the threat as soon as possible. These mercenaries are highly trained mysterious fighters from across the globe. They have no loyalty but to their current contract, no interests but to accomplish their missions as both sides are fighting this war in secrecy from the public attention.
Long term development
Ballistic has been in the making for a few years. What started out as a purely F2P browser game developed for a publisher has evolved to be our passionate self-published game. After bringing it to the market with a publishing partner, we are now assuming full control of the product, and we feel there is an audience that will enjoy the game with no microtransactions and a complete overhaul. We have worked hard on the foundation of Ballistic Overkill and will start as an Early Access game so our player community can give us feedback from the very start, helping us shape what this new Ballistic will be.
The game will receive constant updates and extra content. You can expect new weapon packs, characters, game modes and levels that are already in the works as well as weapon and character skin vanity DLC to show-off on the battlefield. You can check our plans and track our development on our forums
