GENERAL:
-Team-based, objective oriented free to play FPS on Steam
-Currently in open beta
-From the makers of the legendary Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory (=Splash Damage! Yeaaahh, it was about time!)

MECHANICS:
-Accurate hip fire, fast movement speeds, headshots deal 2x damage on most guns
-Parkourish movement (long jumps and wall jumps)
-With melee weapon out you run faster

MERCENARIES:
-Choose between medics, ammo guys, engineers, recons and just pure killers
-Each mercenary comes with its unique ability
-Low HP mercs are faster than high HP mercs
-Paying aspect comes in if you want to unlock new mercs and best loadout cards immediately
-However mercs and cards can be unlocked just by playing. (I never spend real money but got most things I wanted in ~100 hours)
-There are always 2 default mercs accessible and 3 buyable mercs in free rotation to try them out


And to showcase, here's a frag movie by one of the best players in Dirty Bomb (who also happens to be an Enemy Territory veteran):

What do you mean? The gameplay, the graphics or what?



For me personally, this is one of the most promising multiplayer fps titles currently. It's not quite ready for a larger scale competitive scene yet since there are quite a lot of class balancing and fine tuning needed to be done. However pub games have been great fun.

I really dig how it reminds Enemy Territory so much. The maps are big and have multiple objectives that the attacking teams tries to complete within a time limit. For example, attackers try to repair and escort a vehicle carrying drug samples from point A to point B. Then they got to deliver the samples to a drop point. Defenders try to disable the vehicle with airstrikes and other explosives and guard the drop point. In Stopwatch mode (the competitive mode) teams play 2 matches switching sides and try to beat the other team's time.

Combat wise, I like that Dirty Bomb mostly favors good tracking aim and side to side strafing skills. There are however twitch aim guns such as shotguns, sniper rifles and a quake styled "coil rifle" that one of the medics is using (Sparks' REVIVR -gun). The reason why I kind of dislike CS:GO is that it favors twitch aim and surprising so much (since many guns kill in 1 or 2 headshots). Also the unique recoil mechanics frustrates me. I like games where you can see the recoil from the crosshair's shaking. And games where you're not penalized with bad accuracy if you're moving while firing. Can't deny that CS:GO isn't any good and I'd probably get used to it and play it a lot if I just practised. Dirty Bomb just felt like familiar ground for me right off bat and I'm mostly likely going to keep playing it for a long time.

Here's TotalBiscuit's review if you wanna know more how the game plays out:
