bills itself as a 'persistent world next-gen shooter' (aka PWNS), set in a near-future city where society has decayed. The city has become a savage place and players will need to band together in gangs in order to survive, which could prove to be a hit with gamers into urban crime titles. We announced earlier in the week that CrimeCraft has entered closed beta
but beyond our coverage of the title from GDC 2009
we hadn't received a firm release date.
The wait is over now though; Vogster Entertainment has announced that CrimeCraft will launch on August 25th
, meaning it may well be the first of the shooter/MMO hybrid games to go live.
