ARTIX ANNOUNCES FRIDAY THE 13TH“UN-LIVE” EVENT IN MMORPG ADVENTUREQUEST WORLDS

LAND O’ LAKES, FL– MARCH 10, 2009– Artix Entertainment’s MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds will host an in-game“Un-Live Event” on Friday the 13th at 8:00 pm EDT.

Who would be crazy enough to board a ghost ship at night on Friday the 13th and sail through monster-infested waters in search of an uncharted island containing a cursed instrument? What.. you? Are you insane?!?!!?!?!! Good! You are hereby invited to join us on our first

ever live musical event featuring VOLTAIRE!

How else could we top the last Friday the 13th? The ghost ship and its crew of undead pirates will arrive this Friday. We will set sail after the sun sets at 8:00 pm EDT. They say dead men tell no tales, but these salty boneheads will not stop talking about the cursed Guitar of Skull Punch island! It is said that whoever obtains the guitar will be granted fame, fortune and...immortality! We are going to help Voltaire get it! Prepare yourself for a live adventure unlike anything every done before!

Musical guest Voltaire will be playing three songs from his newest album while Artix, Safiria and AQW Team try to survive the adventurewith you. Be a part of history and experience it in real time as the event is broadcasted to all event rooms, on all servers.

Following the live event, we will release a re-playable version of the adventure (but trust us, you want to be there live as it is happening!). There is a good chance that this event will bring down our entire gaming network... and because it is live... ANYTHING can (and probably will) happen.... see you Friday!

AdventureQuest Worlds, which launched in mid-October, has captured the interest of 4.7 million players so far, and they are opening their free accounts at the rate of 200,000 per week.

Artix, a small, Florida-based family-owned studio that offers three other RPG titles AdventureQuest, MechQuest, and DragonFable, has enjoyed a high success rate in the past five years with over 75 million accounts created for their games. Players can visit www.AQ.com, www.mechquest.com, and www.battleon.com to sign up for an account and play online for free. No downloads required.
