FORCED is a brand new gladiator combat-game, based on tactical cooperative 2-4 player gameplay either locally or online (also includes full single player game).
Enslaved and forced to fight in mysterious arenas, the players must survive trial after trial, or face the consequences of their new power mongering master. The more they survive the more they learn about the dreadful purpose of the arenas. Their only ally is their mysterious mentor whose spirit is trapped in an orb. He has no empathy for the weak, yet he often holds the key to success and spiritual growth.
The financing of the project is halfway and about 10days remaining…

Will there be a ranking with multiplayer?
Steffen: We will have rankings, but there might not be PvP ladders with the launch.
Are people able to play on LAN or does it require internet access?
Steffen: People are able to play with LAN
Are gamers able to create their own world/map?
