Pit of War Celebrates Oktoberfest with a Battle Royale

San Francisco, Calif., October 9th, 2012 - Outcast Games, the independent online game developer and publisher, announced today several new features and changes have been made to the company's flagship free to play browser based Gladiatorial Combat MMORPG, Pit of War ( www.pitofwar.com.)

The one major addition to the game is the new Battle Royal. The Battle Royal pits the top 10 Gladiators from each bracket against each other in all out brutal combat, where one winner takes all to be crowned Champion for a day, and earn a precious trophy from the arena officials.

A minor change was made to allow players to see all game clocks set to display in local time for each player, giving the game a more regional feel for each player.

In celebration of Oktoberfest, the Great Realm is celebrating not just with the smashing of flagons of ale, but also with the continuation of discounts and additional rewards started in the month of September. Players will see their coffers continuing to expand at a much faster rate with the increase in gold gained from all areas in the game, and also the continued discounted rates on all Stable Memberships.

New features and changes in this update:

·         Every day the top 10 gladiators in each bracket will compete in a 10 man Battle Royal blood fest! The winning gladiator's master will receive a trophy!

·         All times shown in the game have been localized to your timezone.

·         Autumn is upon us and the Great Realm is continuing its celebration by keeping their war chests open and for the month of October SUPER, MASSIVE, HAPPY amounts of extra gold are being awarded everywhere from the Arena to the Pit Fights!

·         The big sale on Stable Memberships continues with discounts of up to 20% off!
