Brick-Force is currently in closed beta, and the planned stress tests will provide important technical information for a successful launch of open beta this spring. Although the closed beta began only three weeks ago, the rapidly growing community has already achieved some impressive feats:
So far players have participated in over 600,000 shooter sessions in almost 10,000 maps, which have been built with a staggering 196,931,659 bricks. The leading map in terms of popularity is the Brick-Force remake of the Counter-Strike classic, "Dust 2".

This sandbox shooter allows players to create worlds and maps that they've always dreamed of, brick by brick. They can also share these virtual playgrounds with community and use them as the backdrop for fast paced shooter hunts against fellow players or computerized opponents. This comic style online game is built on the 'Unity 3D' engine and will be playable directly in a web browser. The 'sandbox' mode, in which players use simple building blocks to construct complex environments, can be played on social networks and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Brick-Force is being developed by Korean game developer EXE Games as a co-production with Infernum. The closed beta was launched on the 28th February, 2012. Open beta and release will follow in Spring 2012. Several language versions are planned. More information can be found at News ‹ Brick-Force.com - Build, Share and Play
