Kraken Studios, a Russian based independent development studio, are gearing up for a new release as they announce the May 5th debut of the session-based science-fiction MMO shooter, Warside. The games impending release follows a successful Kickstarter campaign on Steam, seeing the MMO community register their interest with votes that help to increase the games exposure on the Steam platform and eventually, show enough support to warrant a full release on Valve’s digital distribution platform.
