PlayStation enthusiasts, get ready to hone your Freegunner skills! PlayStation has announced that the early access beta for “Concord,” a new 5v5 shooter game, will be available starting July 2024. This exciting news came via a tweet from the official PlayStation Twitter account, inviting players to pre-order the game to unlock special bonuses and early access.

“Concord” is an upcoming first-person shooter (FPS) from Firewalk Studios, known for their innovative multiplayer experiences. The game features dynamic and strategic 5v5 battles in a vibrant sci-fi universe. Players take on the role of “Freegunners,” a diverse group of characters, each with unique abilities and playstyles.

The developers aim to cater to both newcomers and seasoned players. Each Freegunner is designed to offer varied tactical options, ensuring that the gameplay remains engaging and challenging. Some characters can deploy walls of fire or explosive traps, while others have abilities that influence the match’s long-term strategy, such as bullet-blocking domes and deployable walls​​.

The beta, starting in July, is open to those who pre-order the game. Pre-ordering not only grants early access but also comes with five beta access codes, allowing you to invite four friends to join the test period. This collaborative feature is intended to help players explore the game’s team dynamics before its official release​.
