guinness book world record attempt happening this Sunday. You can help
This Sunday Much Different
will attempt to break world records by hosting a 1000 player FPS battle. You can help. The game is called Man vs. Machine, a free, browser-based shooter built in the Unity engine. If youâ€™re camped on the Man vs. Machine front page when the record attempt starts, you stand a chance of being one of those soldiers.
It all kicks off this Sunday, January 29 at 4pm CET / 3PM GMT/ 7am PST. Donâ€™t expect Planetside levels of complexity from this one. Itâ€™s a straightforward shooter backed up by some fancy server architecture which should hopefully allow two teams of 500 players to fight each other to the death. The eventâ€™s being run by Much Different, who are doing it â€œbecause we could.â€
The teams are split between gamers and developers. Gamers will become Man, described as being â€œstrong, handsome and redâ€ with splash damage rocket launchers. Developers will be Machines, who are â€œcold, big and blueâ€ and wield precision lasers. Slots will be allocated on a first come, first served basis but you can buy a ticket to guarantee yourself a spot. Find out more on the Man vs. Machine site.
