In the heat of premiere fever:

Weinheim / Irvine, 17 August 2009

GamersFirst, a service from K2 Network and a leading Free2Play MMO publisher in the western hemisphere based in Irvine, California in the USA, is taking the offensive by presenting current and coming game highlights at the gamescom 2009 in Cologne, Germany together with Acony, a German developer from Villingen-Schwenningen.

The centrepiece of the exhibition portfolio is Parabellum, the coveted Massive Multiplayer Online First-Person Shooter fans yearn for. The title is going to be presented to trade visitors in a greatly advanced version at the business area (Hall 04, Level 2, Aisle J, Booth 051 at G.A.M.E. Bundesverband der Entwickler von Computerspielen). New features will be revealed, discussion will revolve around the business model and plans for the period following release.

As André Herbst, marketing director at Acony, adds:

"We want to revolutionise the Free2Play sector with Parabellum and offer a quality of service unknown until now. At the moment we are feverishly looking forward to enabling trade visitors to have a look at the title at the gamescom, and then to spellbind them with outstanding game quality."

In addition, GamersFirst is presenting two European premieres: In Victory, a historically inclined Fantasy MMO Formula Racing Game, virtual racing-car drivers compete for fame and glory in thrilling duels. Alongside state-of-the-art graphics and the highest degree of realism, what particularly stands out is the bolides' enormous diversity for modification. Gamers can customise their mega-scramblers down to the last detail so that no vehicle is akin to any other.

Taikodom, the MMO Space Shooter, places PC gamers in the role of valiant outer-space adventurers who can explore unknown solar systems, fight epic wars and establish mighty commercial empires.

Bryan Davies, public relations director at GamersFirst, goes on to explain: "The gamescom is the leading European trade fair for interactive entertainment. We do justice to this by enabling trade visitors to have a look at a highly advanced version of Parabellum while celebrating the European premiere of two more Free2Play blockbusters, too."

Besides product demonstrations, the management of GamersFirst is also providing exclusive insights into the various business models on the Free2Play market and will explain the company's further strategy in greater detail.
