San Francisco, CA - November 14, 2012 - Fiesta, one of the first and most beloved free-to-play anime fantasy MMOs, is turning five years old this month. Outspark, its North American publisher, now with over 11 million registered users and nearly one million Facebook fans, practically birthed the industry with the iconic game a half decade ago.
"When we launched Fiesta in North America back in 2007, no one in the West really knew how to do free-to-play while sustaining a vibrant live service. The model was successful in Asia, but here all the focus was subscription-based. Since then, the Fiesta community has grown into a massive gaming population. Players spend hours a day hanging out with friends in the game. They've not only formed lasting bonds, but some have even met and married the love of their life, and had amazing adventures across a vast open world together. We're now at 115 levels, and in all that time, there have been hundreds of millions of hours played, billions of monsters killed, and over three quadrillion EXP points earned. Most impressive!" exclaimed Philip Yun, CEO of Outspark.
Fiesta kicks off its epic Anniversary KO with an action-packed offering of exciting new content, events and giveaways. Drop in the game to enjoy:
