How to confuse the hell out of potential fans of an upcoming video game: change its name twice during development.
Dirty Bomb, the free-to-play shooter coming soon from the makers of Brink, has changed its name to Extraction and while one might think the swap was done for reasons of taste or not attracting government surveillance, the real reason is more quotidian, says the studio.
Extraction comes as a bonus multiplayer mode for
GameStop any retailer's pre-order customers. But don't fret — the rest of us will get the mode 30 days after the game's release. Be glad they didn't make that 40 just to stick to theme.
