NEOTOKYO° is a first person shooter that aims to provide a visceral & realistic combat experience in a rich futuristic setting. NEOTOKYO° takes place in and around a fictionalized Tokyo approximately 30 years in the future. Mankind has begun to fuse with technology. Government and corporate corruption have transformed Tokyo into a deadly dystopian nightmare. After a near-successful military coup by ranking members of Jinrai, the National Security Force (NSF) is formed - answering directly to the Prime Minister, it's mission is to investigate and eliminate all threats to Japan, both abroad and at home. The initial core of the NSF is made from an exodus from within the intelligence branch of the military. With this betrayal begins the war in the shadows between the NSF and Jinrai.
In preparation for their upcoming release, the NEOTOKYO° team has released several images hinting at the mechanics of the game.

Well, it looks like its NEOTOKYO° is almost here, according to the official word from pushBAK on their site:
pushBAK wrote:As far as development goes... the mod is essentially done. We've just got a few things to tidy up (double checking to make sure maps don't have problems like not enough spawns for large player counts, working with server admins to see if their admin tools are essentially compatible with NT, fine tuning a couple weapons for balance, etc..) We're also going to try and get the word out a little more aggressively by doing the usual PR stuffzzzzz.
Hopefully soon we can get a proper official tutorial going, and some announcements/info (max player recommendation, release map list, server stuff, last of the media, etc...) As soon as we've locked down these things, we'll post it up.
In addition to this, a number of 'noob hints' were posted up that detail a lot of the mechanics behind the classes, the special vision modes and 'capture the ghost' gametype.
Looks like its in the home stretches now...
