A new competitor is about to enter the South East Asian MMO shooter scene, with upcoming title Avatar Star confirmed for release in Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines in 2013.
The game--which is developed by Pearl Digital and distributed in the region by Cherry Credits--is a third-person shooter that focuses heavily on player customisation of in-game characters. The game will also feature three character classes--the Gunner, Guardian, and Assassin. Each class has unique characteristics, such as invisibility for the assassin, team health boosts for the Guardian, and shields for the Gunner.
The game is set for a closed beta in early 2013, with an exact date yet to be announced. Gamers in Singapore can, however, play an alpha build of the game this weekend, with Avatar Star playable at the Licence2Play event being held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center. The event takes play from December 7 to 9, with Avatar Star playable at Exhibition Hall E.
