The Ping Awards is a French video game awards ceremony that is presented annually in Paris that celebrates, ‘…the best [in] French creations’.
Four modes have been confirmed so far:
- DeathMatch and Team DeathMatch: The goal is to kill as many opponents as possible. If there is a draw when the timer ends there will be extra time added, until one player, or one team, surpasses their rival!
- HardPoint: Two teams fight for the control of strategical areas appearing in different spots in the arena. When a player is in one of these areas, his team scores points. If players of both teams are in the same area, then the area becomes contested, and no points are scored. Don’t forget to coordinate with your teammates to leave no chances to your opponents!
- Capture the Flag: Two teams face off, each having a flag in their bases. To score points, and win the game, each team has to capture the enemy’s flag, and bring it to their base. If there is a draw at the end of the timer, the golden flag will appear!
The Kickstarter campaign is set to launch on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 and during the duration of the campaign, a demo will be available on Steam for everyone to try out.
