Bellevue studio launching Facebook action game

A Bellevue game studio formed by “Call of Duty” veterans is launching its first game on Facebook today, a free action shooter called “Offensive Combat.”

The company, called U4iA, set out to build console-quality, core action games that can be played on browsers and mobile devices. It started in 2011 and now has 31 employees.

Testing of “Offensive Combat” last month drew more than 500,000 players. It’s a free game with paid upgrades.

“We designed Offensive Combat for a fast-growing segment of core gamers who want a fine-tuned, eSport-level FPS game that can be played anywhere, anytime via their web browser, and not limited by a major software install or the need for dedicated hardware,” co-founder Chris Archer said in the release.
