Get Ready For Brave Arms: Facebook's First Social Shooter

3G Studios in Reno, Nevada is taking the video game industry by the reigns and is launching the first social shooter on the Facebook platform. While I can't release too many details about the game itself, I can say that with the progress of the game I will be using this site to keep readers and players informed. 3G has taken a different approach to its development tactics by creating a game that will appeal to the masses as opposed to the hard-core gamer niche. The CEO, James Kosta, has been quoted as saying, "it's about fast-paced action and either competing against or forming teams with your friends. We want people to feel empowered and to share in a real video game experience."

The game itself is in its Alpha stages of testing and is aiming for Beta testing in the beginning of March and an official launch to the public in later March. While it is still in its Alpha phase, the public is being invited to reserve their chosen name for the upcoming Public Beta at htt://

3G Studios is definitely not new to the scene, with titles such as "Jillian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum 2009," a collaboration with Harmonix to release "Rock Band" in 2007, "SWAT: Target Liberty" in 2007, and "Stacked with Daniel Negreanu" in 2006. Most recently, 3G Studios has launched four new intellectual properties on the iPhone; two of the most popular are a rhythm beat-matching game entitled "Zombeat" and an underwater adventure game entitled "The Deep."
We are anticipating great things from our latest venture and we hope to keep everyone's interests peaked as we move forward, so stay tuned for updates!
