Bigpoint have started revealing the first exclusive details on their playable classes in the up-coming Merc Elite. The Recon is the first class that we are being treated to, I’m pretty sure I’ll be giving this class a go when I get to play. The Recon is very fast moving but weak in open fights, their regular weapons are to be supported by smoke grenades and tactics. They have to rely on a mixture of their ability to cloak and stealthy movement to get close enough to stun with their katana and let out some damage. Light weight weapons, katanas, and fast footwork? Sign me up!

Merc Elite is a fast pace, military-themed MOBA game. It’s currently in beta with sign-ups available at their official site, but the game is set to be launched in 2013 as a free-to-play browser title. Check out the Recon preview below:
