HoboArena to pay out every three months

Brisbane, July 14– HellBored Entertainment, which owns and operates the successful Hobowars.com browser-based gaming site, has announced that the second round of HoboArena.com is set to begin, with $8,000 again up for grabs. The game has moved from biannual format to one that rewards players every three months.

HoboWars offers players both a social experience through detailed friend lists, gang membership and management, and weekly challenges, and also adventures through a campaign structure. Players gain experience through completing online actions, and through combat, and with more than 150,000 players members of 100 gangs (and gang wars common) action is guaranteed.

The second round of HoboArena will begin at 1pm Eastern Australian time Thursday (July 16), and is a stripped down version of the Hobowars experience, allowing players to focus on training their character and battling other players. Elements of the main Hobowars game, such as the kart racing, adventuring and rat races have been removed toallow players focus on one of the two categories to win– highest level hobo, and richest hobo (each category has a US$4000 prize pool).

Players do not need to have a Hobowars account to take part in HoboArena, as all players use new accounts.
