MALIBU, Calif. - May 5, 2009 - Abandon Interactive Entertainment today announced Freaky Space, the first expansion to the massively multiplayer online game (MMOG), Freaky Creatures. In Freaky Space, players will use spaceships to lift off their planets and take their battles to the stars, discovering an all-new, unexplored space. Now in development, the community beta will be available this summer to all Freaky Creatures subscribers. To purchase a starter pack and sign up to play, please visit: http://www.FreakyCreatures.com.
Freaky Space nearly doubles the size of the Freaky Creatures universe, introducing all-new player-versus-environment (PvE) gameplay and multiplayer intergalactic battles. Players can join one of four alien races and numerous factions as they journey to the edges of the Freaky Creatures universe. As players enter Freaky Space, they will encounter dozens of characters and become part of all-new storylines. Along the way, players become more powerful as they level up their spaceships and improve their battle skills. While exploring new realms and learning more about the dangers lurking in space, players will face off against the galaxy's deadliest challenges. Just as space is limitless, so are the possibilities in the Freaky Creatures universe.
" Freaky Space is the next step in our expansion plans for the Freaky Creatures universe and continues Abandon's commitment to offering engaging, original content to reward our community," said Jamie Ottilie, President and COO of Abandon Interactive Entertainment. "With an entire new galaxy to explore and multiple new gameplay mechanics, all of our players are sure to find something new to enjoy."
Freaky Creatures starter packs are now available for purchase at comic, hobby and local toy retailers and FYE stores nationwide for $19.99. The game is also available at FAO Schwarz in New York City, where gameplay kiosks are on hand for game demonstrations. Currently in development, Freaky Space will launch in late 2009.
