Gameshow FPS ‘The Finals’ Hits Screens with a Stealthy Release
Hold onto your hats, folks! The Game Awards 2023 just unleashed a rollercoaster of excitement – Embark Studios’ free-to-play FPS spectacle, The Finals, just dropped the mother of all bombshells with its release date. And get this – it’s not some distant, vague date in the future; no, no, it’s today, right this very moment!
Now, let me set the scene for you: The Finals, a multiplayer FPS that throws you headfirst into the wild and wacky world of a game show contestant. You’re not just fighting for glory – you’re on a quest for global stardom, basking in the adoration of seriously chic sponsors. And the kicker? Picture this – you’re tearing through virtual arenas inspired by real-deal hotspots like Seoul and Monaco, leaving chaos and destruction in your wake for that extra shot of immersive pandemonium.
But hold on, we’re not done – buckle up for the ride through a carnival of modes! Dive headfirst into the heart-pounding 3v3v3 Quick Cash, where your mission is nothing short of raiding a vault, snagging the loot, and sprinting it to a cashout point. All the while, you’re locked in a wild cat-and-mouse game with other trios. And then, shift gears into the more chill Bank-It mode, where four teams of three throw down, scooping up coins like they’re going out of style.
Fast-forward to October, and gamers across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC got a front-row seat with an open cross-play beta. Let me tell you, it wasn’t just a hit – it was a smash hit. A whopping 7.5 million players dove in, eager to lap up every bit of the action.
But here’s the real talk from the beta buzz – a little stumble that had everyone talking: those slightly awkward AI-generated voice lines for The Finals’ commentators. The devs swore by AI’s magic, making voice recording a cakewalk. But here’s the cliffhanger – did those AI gems make the final cut? The suspense is off the charts, my friends!
