FRAY is a unique and fast paced multiplayer simultaneous turn-based strategy game. In 2098 the world and all its resources are controlled by three mega-corporations vying for control of the Earth. All human interaction is confined to the realm of virtual reality modules. One such virtual reality is the combat module Fray. In Fray players will control a squad of four soldiers of unique classes, weapons and abilities. Choose your allegiance to one of the three mega-corporations, win, and be rewarded with allegiance points and special items. Once in Fray, players will assign moves and actions to each of their squad members. At the end of each timed round, or after all players have entered their moves, the action will resolve and play out in cinematic fashion. Keen observation, tactics, and the wisdom of experience will help you predict your opponent’s moves and anticipate their attacks and counters.
