'Interstellar Marines' - Free Online FPS (Trailer)

by Matt Moeller

I don’t know about you but the thought of a console quality first person shooter that is free to the public and played on any browser sounds too good to be true. Check out the trailer for new game by Zero Point Software for a game that boast just that. 

Turns out the trailer is just for the training portion of the game which is called Bullseye. It may be a little misleading as the only free part is this first portion as far as I can tell. Also, the game does not seem to have a solid release date yet and advertises the option to pre-order the game. I tried it and it went pretty smooth, all I had to do was download and install a plug-in called the Unity Web Player for my browser. Go to www.interstellarmarines.com to try the game.
