AVA: Dog Tag is a free tactical first person shooter that focuses on showing contemporary war zones. The production is a revised version of AVA: Alliance of Valliant Arms released in 2011 (the game servers were shut down at the end of June 2018). The game offers gameplay model based on a system involving several different, complementary classes. The game was developed and published by the Korean Red Duck studio.
Action AVA: Dog Tag is set in Europe engulfed in a fictitious war between the European Union (supported by the United States) and the Neo-Russian Federation (a power composed mainly of Russia and China). Most of the battles take place in cities reminiscent of places known from Europe.
AVA: Dog Tag is a realistic first person team shooter. Each game starts with the choice of the character class - players have several to choose from, and each one significantly alters the play style, Point Man (moves very fast, and his specialty is short range combat), Sniper (shoots from a long distance abd us equipped with a rifle. He is able to immobilize the opponent, making it difficult for him to leave the place) or Rifle Man (a versatile soldier who can do well in practically any situation).
Each class has access to a different set of weapons. Players also have the ability to modify weapons, so that they better match them to their individual style of play. The game puts a strong emphasis on cooperation between players - the roles have been designed to complement one another.
The biggest change in relation to AVA: Alliance of Valliant Arms is the redesigned business model, completely lacking the P2W elements (pay-to-win - this term is used to describe solutions that give a real advantage to players who spend money in the game).
In AVA: Dog Tag one can only play with others. Players have several modes at their disposal, such as Annihilation (team deathmatch - players receive points for killing opponents), Demolition (players place explosive charges in designated locations, and opponents try to defend positions), Transport (one protects or tries to capture a suitcase with nuclear codes), Escort (players protect a tank against the enemy or try to destroy it) and Free for All (a deathmatch).
AVA: Dog Tag delivers decent-quality 3D visuals based on the Unreal Engine. The visual side of this production focuses on realism - it is visible in the weapons, equipment, and location models. The system responsible for the partial destruction of the environment also looks impressive. The audio layer is quite interesting - for example, the tone of the commands spoken by individual characters (selected from the list) changes depending on a number of additional factors, such as related wounds or ongoing enemy fire.
