Zany weapon-crafting multiplayer game Forge and Fight! will debut at the Steam Game Festival next month, with an open beta soon to follow. Developed by independent studio Flamebait Games, Forge and Fight! offers a competitive multiplayer experience with a unique twist. The game launches into Steam Early Access this summer.
Forge and Fight! is described as a physics-based, weapon-crafting multiplayer game. Once you’ve forged a weapon from various parts you’ve collected, you can then take your creation into multiplayer and face off against up to eight opponents online. There are over 40 weapon parts to choose from, including elemental parts that allow your weapon to electrocute, burn, or poison your foes. Combining certain parts together can also unlock new weapon bonuses to make you even more formidable during combat.

The event is Valve’s way of showcasing various upcoming games releasing in the coming year in lieu of E3. The Steam Game Festival will run from June 9-14.
