FAQ - 2013
What is DoV?
DoV is a 1st person supply driven team based shooter, with a great deal of focus on teamwork and the use of tactics to overcome the opposing team.
The emphasis of the game is not solo running and gunning. The mission is to use team based tactics to capture and control as many enemy regions on the map as possible, whilst at the same time defending your own regions.
Regions are of strategic importance and fundamentally increase a team's campaign abilities. The more regions a team controls the more “War Supplies” that team will receive, giving them a distinct advantage in combat.
As a player you will progress through a living world, a harsh war torn environment that is as unforgiving as your enemy. You will not only be at odds with enemy forces, but also with nature itself. With a completely dynamic weather system a player could just as easily be killed by frostbite hiking through a snowstorm or killed from starvation lost in the wilderness.
