GamersFirst Has Seen The Future

Irvine, Ca.– June 1, 2009– GamersFirst ( www.gamersfirst.com), a service of K2 Network and one of today's most popular free2play online game destinations, introduces Taikodom as the newest addition to GamersFirst’s already stellar line up of games being shown a E3 in Los Angeles, Ca.

Taikodom is a Massive Multiplayer Online Game set in the 23rd century Taken by surprise when a mysterious energy field blocked Earth; humankind has then expanded to the space, where people joined in different space communities. Several terrestrial humans have escaped Earth in suspended animation. Awakened by the Consortium, a sort of centralized government, these humans are now called resurrects, who have to struggle in order to guarantee a spot at space society. And you will enter Taikodom as one of them. Set in a breathtaking journey through the universe, Taikodom is filled with adventure, riches, danger, and glory; are you up to the challenge?

“Taikodom is a perfect addition to our already stellar lineup of games.” Says Joe Rush, Director of Game Operations, GamersFirst.“The quality of gaming we intend to bring to the Free2Play market can be truly seen with Taikodom.”

In 2073, an inexplicable anomaly has created an inexpugnable energetic field surrounding planet Earth, the event became known as Restriction. Space population wasn’t able to supply Earth with resources anymore, which has lead the planet into complete chaos. This is the beginning of the age of Earth Restriction (ER): 2073 AD is now called year 1 ER. When a player joins Taikodom, they are taken to the year 156 ER and, like any other inhabitant of this futuristic universe, are virtually immortal, for they can transfer their personality records to a spare clone and activate it when needed. Now, gigantic distances are traveled in seconds, and anyone can face the fiercest combat without fear of death. Alone or together in corporations, players take part in combats, mining activities and commerce across the space in real-time. Taikodom has a rich, coherent and fully detailed story which is continually expanding and evolving as time passes.

"Hoplon is proud to be working with GamersFirst; they have established themselves as a leader in the Free2Play market.” States Tarquinio Teles, CEO, Hoplon“We are looking forward to the launch of Taikodom and a long and prosperous relationship with GamersFirst.”
