Caliber, a free-to-play team-based shooter, is now available on Steam, 1C Game Studios has announced. Caliber has actually been playable for some years now, having launched into open beta in late 2019, but now, Steam users can get in on the action without downloading the standalone version of the game, which features 68 playable operators and 17 real-world special forces units across 12 countries. Existing players can link their active accounts to their Steam accounts, while a time-limited event has also been launched that allows players to claim rewards by collecting coins, awarded by completing certain tasks.
From a 1C Game Studios press release:
To mark the release of Caliber, the 1C Game Studios team offers a Special Steam launch time-limited event that also starts on April 12 and will last until April 19. The rules are simple — win five times in any mode, except for the Prologue, each day and earn coins. When you fill the progress bar, you will be able to claim the reward.
An online multiplayer third-person shooter, Caliber’s gameplay is based on tactical cooperation between players, who each take on one of four roles represented by dozens of operators. Offering PVP and PVE, the key to victory in Caliber is a proper assessment of the situation at hand and coordinated teamwork among all players.
There are 68 playable operators in Caliber, with 17 real-world special forces units across 12 countries, including USA, UK, Israel, Germany and France. Each operator in Caliber has a unique set of skill sets, weapons and special abilities:
- Assault – The fastest unit, capable of flanking the enemy to get behind their lines.
- Marksman – Provides cover and eliminates targets at long range.
- Medic – Heals and revives allies and is effective in combat at close and medium range.
- Support – Heavily armed operator with lots of HP and armor. The Support’s main goal is to divert the enemy’s attention and disrupt their attacks.
