ROBOTS ATTACK PLANET CALYPSO

Göteborg, Sweden - September 1, 2010 /GameBlast/ - First Planet Company, developer and publisher of the largest real money Massively Multiplayer Online Game, announced today the newest version is available for download. This update extends the current robot invasion event until September 6th. It also adds in two new menacing robot threats. Additionally players will find 18 new missions and an improved teleporter to help get them accustomed to Calypso.

It's been a year since the dreaded Robot War Titan called "Typhon" made its way through Calypso's defenses and crashed into the middle of the Calypso capital Hadesheim, leaving it nothing but a large crater. Afterwards, Planet Calypso was reborn. From snow and ashes, new and breathtaking CryEngine2 scenery emerged. On the anniversary date, the colonists intercepted several robot messages that after having been decoded, hinted at more massive robot attacks against Calypso. In a painful reminder of last year's failed defense, colonists from newcomers to veterans have gathered up to battle the robots once again. This time, the robots have arrived with new technology, an ever-evolving monster they have chosen to call the "Hydra".
