ATLANTA. January 30, 2012.
This week, Hi-Rez Studios ( www.hirezstudios.com) celebrates the two-year anniversary of the award-winning, free-to-play game Global Agenda. The Shooter MMO launched on February 1, 2010 as an action combat and sci-fi alternative to more traditional fantasy MMO titles. “Elves still exist in the MMO world”, says Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer. “Just not within our world.”
In 2011 Global Agenda transitioned to a free-to-play model, was relaunched as the very first free-to-play game on Steam and delivered the Recursive Colony expansion which included new instanced PvP, new instanced PvE, and an entirely new Open Zone.
Since launch Global Agenda has seen:
- Over 1,000,000 registered players
- Over 12,000,000 PvE missions
- Over 1,400,000 PvP missions
Free Limited Edition Pet - Hi-Rez Studios is enticing players new and old to join in this week’s celebration of the two-year anniversary. Any player winning an instanced PvP or PvE mission between January 30th and February 6th will receive a miniature version of the Switchblade Boss as a player Pet.
PvP Tournament Reward - Hi-Rez is sponsoring player managed PvP tournaments including a recent 6v6 competition. As 2012 is the year of the dragon, all tournament participants receive a free dragon themed helmet in addition to an exclusive item and cash prize for the winning team.
More Flair - Over 100 back-catalogue appearance and flair items from days past are returning for sale within the Dome City Burning Fashion vendor.
