About This Game

Direct Contact embodies the essence of authentic warfare, delivering a first-person tactical realism experience that immerses players in the heart of modern combat. Most weapons adhere to real-world specifications within their respective classifications, creating a dynamic and asymmetrical battlefield.

In this team-based game, players engage as part of Special Forces units from across the globe. The enemy forces are cunning and coordinated, actively communicating and executing flanking maneuvers to eliminate their targets. The game's focus spans a wide spectrum of military tactics, encompassing intense close-quarters combat scenarios, meticulous consideration of room geometry and layout, diverse entry methods, and the strategic intricacies of mid to long-range engagements.

Direct Contact seamlessly integrates real-life physics into the gaming world. When a bullet hits a surface like a wall or floor, it can realistically ricochet, posing a genuine threat to the player. Each bullet in the game follows authentic principles of velocity and drop, adding a layer of realism and challenge that mirrors the dynamics of live ammunition.

Air Support

In Direct Contact, our explosions are near-photorealistic. You'll call in airstrikes from iconic aircraft like the Eurofighter, F18, A10 Warthog, and Sukhoi Su-25, using laser-guided munitions or locating targets yourself. When these jets launch missiles, the lifelike process includes the missile bay ejector releasing the missile, enhancing the realism of the aerial combat experience.

Highly Detailed Battle Fields

Defeat your enemies on highly rich, detailed battlefields stretching over a large area.

Interact With Your Enemy

Direct Contact features a comprehensive system that assesses the behavior of enemy characters based on their in-game style. Players can engage with these enemies, applying pressure and encircling them strategically. This interaction triggers a fear system, which then influences the enemy's behavior. Their responses and actions will be shaped by the fear they experience, adding depth and realism to their in-game personalities and decision-making. Your tactics and approach will be crucial in determining how your enemies react and adapt during gameplay.

Arrest the Enemy

When an enemy surrenders in Direct Contact, you can detain them. It's important to note that you can't approach random civilians and detain them without cause. Civilian characters are programmed to respond intelligently, providing evidence to demonstrate their innocence if wrongfully accused. This level of detail ensures that the gameplay experience remains authentic and avoids unjust actions against innocent non-combatants.


An object's hardness plays a critical role in determining the behavior of bullets in Direct Contact. Bullets can ricochet off hard surfaces, penetrate softer ones, or even change trajectories when encountering different materials. This realism extends to your character's experience, affecting their weapon handling significantly. In the event of injury, your character's performance will be compromised, and recovery takes time. When you're hit, you won't be able to bounce back immediately; instead, you'll require assistance from a teammate to receive healing and get back into action. Teamwork and strategy are paramount in navigating the challenges of the battlefield.


Our primary objective for the game is to deliver an immersive and intense tactical team-based gaming experience. From realistic sounds to meticulously crafted animations of our weapons, our goal is to achieve the highest accuracy possible. We pay painstaking attention to detail, including the intricacies of bullet physics, to ensure a true-to-life experience.

Moreover, we seek valuable insights from real veterans, drawing from their tactics and weapon-sound expertise. This commitment extends to every aspect of the game, from how weapons are handled to the visceral experience of firing them, all to offer players an authentic and engaging gameplay experience.


Direct Contact is currently optimized for QWERTY keyboards exclusively. Suppose you wish to rebind your keys or use a different keyboard layout. In that case, you may need to explore third-party software solutions for crucial rebinding or consider acquiring a QWERTY keyboard. Please note that Direct Contact does not currently offer support for keyboards other than QWERTY. While we continually work on enhancing the game, it's essential to clarify that this specific aspect may not change in the near future. Any updates in this regard will be officially announced. I appreciate your understanding.
