BlackFoot Studios is proud to announce to it's loyal and growing community.........

Ground Branch



Ground Branch Synopsis  

Ground Branch is the premiere title from Blackfoot Studios. The term Ground Branch is a little known Military and Intelligence reference phrase for the paramilitary wing of the CIA. Ground Branch is composed of a Command that oversees operational teams which conduct military and intelligence actions in support of the goals specified by the National Command Authority.

These teams are not constrained by the law of land warfare that applies to military units. They operate under the radar and outside public knowledge, often conducting operations in conjunction with Special Operations Forces. Their members are drawn from the best former SOF operators from around the world including US Army Special Forces, British SAS, Australian SAS, Navy SEALs, Delta Force, and GSG9 just to name a few.

Ground Branch often operates in an area where there is no official or allowed military presence and utilizes the most advanced weaponry, intelligence and support mechanisms.

The story in Ground Branch opens with the expanding Chinese oil companies backing a guerrilla leader in Sumatra. The goal is the over throw of the West Sumatran government in order to allow China easier access to the massive oil strata discovered to the west of the country in Sumatran waters. Loss of communication with an advance Intel gathering team along with Guerrilla seizure of oil platforms and a bold move toward the capital of West Sumatra result in the CIA deployment of a Ground Branch 6 man team to gather intelligence and assess the situation in preparation for possible US Military intervention.

The Ground Branch Team enters the fray and the player begins a whirlwind experience where the battlefield evolves and the morality of right and wrong become a matter of choice. The gamer will chase a warlord and an elusive truth across a country while employing advanced techniques such as covert underwater scuba operations and high altitude parachuting techniques known as HALO to surprise a vastly superior enemy.

The basis for the Ground Branch game experience is, like everything else in the title, realism. There are legions of FPS fans that are constantly saying, ?I wish there was a game where I could do such and such just like the real world.? With Ground Branch, they will. All the while getting their hands "dirty" and experiencing the visceral consequences of hard decisions made during desperate situations.


A game specific site will be online within a few weeks.

So that's what the obscure "GB" hint was about...  :hmm:

*momentarily incapacitated by R6 flashback*

You know guys, I had very high expectations of this game. They just got higher

Congrats to the team, good title and background for it.
Like the new look here too. We're all covert and stuff looking now.  :ph34r:

BTW, the 6 man teams sounds just right. Thanks for the story outline too.

Certainly an interesting title & intriguing plot, although TBH Im not a big fan of the title chosen, but hey...its the gameplay Im more interested in & if BFS deliver only half of what they show/say they can then I'll be impressed.

Keep up the good work guys  :thumbsup:

Wow!

Covert CIA paramilitary ops in a country that no one is supposed to be operating in. Reminds me of Clear & Present Danger with an R6 twist. Good job guys.

Looked at that site yesterday trying to figure out the title. LOL
Does this mean there may later be Air Branch and Maritime Branch games?
