It's funny how game projects come about; originally labeled as a pitch for the future of Call of Duty, Elastic Games never intended Police Warfare to become an actual product.
The new studio that is comprised of former Ubisoft, Epic Games, Activision and EA employees, released the pitch video on YouTube, and after such a strong response, decided to unleash the project via Kickstarter.
The game pits cops versus robbers in an online, 32-player warzone, complete with vehicles. Set in L.A, you can expect SWAT vans, bank robberies, explosive shootouts and multiple game modes at your disposal.
Wondering if these are low-level employees from big studios? Previous titles that the team have worked on include Crysis, Crysis 2, Grand Theft Auto IV, Assassin's Creed 2 and Far Cry 3.
So how much do they need for the game to be completed? $325,000, and with $2,436 raised already, they are on the way to achieveing what seems like a modest goal these days.
$15 will net you a copy of the game upon release, which is slated as a PC exclusive at this stage, with aspirations for Xbox Live and PSN later down the line.
We're definitely going to empty our pockets for this project.
