Global Agenda Releases Today

LONDON, UK - September 10, 2010. Global Agenda, the award-winning Shooter/MMO from Hi-Rez Studios, is available from today in stores across the UK. The game is published by Iceberg Interactive and is on sale at retail outlets throughout the UK and Ireland, including GAME, Play.com, Zavvi, TheHut.com, Shopto.net and Amazon.co.uk.

Global Agenda allows players to create and customize multiple agent characters, complementing FPS skills with accessible RPG-style progression. Players can co-op with friends online, compete in fast-paced competitive multiplayer matches, and conquer persistent territory with player-formed groups called agencies.

The release also includes Global Agenda's Sandstorm expansion. Sandstorm introduces new and varied player weapons, craftable consumables, a Mission Giver system, a story-driven mission experience within the Sonoran OpenZone, and high-level Raid content.

Players can enjoy all current content, including Player-vs-Player combat, Player-vs-Environment solo and co-op content, and Agency-vs- Agency seasons, without any required monthly payment. Future content updates will be delivered via optional paid expansions.

Global Agenda operates London-based servers today to support its European customers. The game's unique single-shard server design allows all customers worldwide to compete inside the same game universe, with the ability to play with or against anyone, while at the same time allowing European players the freedom to choose a European Data Center from which to load mission instances.

Future localized versions of Global Agenda are planned, including a German retail version on October 29, 2010. For more information, visit www.globalagendagame.com
