MALIBU, Calif.– October 6, 2009– Abandon Interactive Entertainment today revealed new details and screenshots about Freaky Adventures, the upcoming expansion to the evolving Freaky Creatures universe. Scheduled for release in Q4 2009, Freaky Adventures will present players with player versus environment interaction for the first time as they explore previously uncharted territory within the Freaky Creatures MMOG. Offering new gameplay, new environments and new experiences, Freaky Adventures will challenge players to improve on their creatures’ skills as they encounter new characters, obstacles and mysteries navigating through this unfamiliar realm.
Freaky Adventures is the first major content update for Freaky Creatures, offering new missions and allowing players to venture into unexplored territory beyond creature lairs and battle arenas, including the all-new Verduran jungle environment. The screenshots reveal some of the new objects, parts and powers that players can obtain by defeating monsters within missions. Most missions are available to free-to-play members, while a few select missions are available exclusively for premium members.
The first four characters players will encounter are Alexx Stargazer, Miri Soria, Violet and Ulutu. Ulutu is an entirely new character who is a member of the tribal Velon race which resides on Verdura. Each character has a range of missions that lead to increasingly difficult missions upon completion. Travelling to missions is instantaneous in Freaky Adventures,so players spend more time adventuring, not waiting for the challenges to arrive. The map icon located in the lobby brings up locations and missions, and the mission log allows players to review their status and objectives as they progress through the game. Some of the exciting new objects displayed in the Freaky Adventures screenshots include a mystical Kolorg Horns, an effective Ankyo Tail for walloping Trapperns, and the wicked Ssorak Snakeblade. A rare Ssorak Shield and newly discovered Reptine Tail help players defend themselves from monsters as they complete missions. To navigate the dangerous jungles, players can use Fireel Fin headpieces, Frolan Growth wings and a Klonk Hammer.
Freaky Creatures is now available for purchase at comic, hobby, electronic and toy retailers nationwide. The game is also available at Best Buy, FAO Schwarz in New York City and f.y.e. stores nationwide.
