SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON - August 4, 2011

SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe, Ltd. today announced that a brand-new Player vs. Player mode has been added to Spiral Knights™, the retro-inspired multiplayer action-RPG created by renowned developer Three Rings. Starting today, brave knights can duel each other in a newly-sanctioned arena under the gaze of King Krogmo, with the winners of these intense battles coming away with fantastic in-game prizes. To commemorate the new addition, SEGA and Three Rings will be awarding the Spiral Bombhead Mask to all players who complete their first PvP battle, regardless of the match’s outcome. A special package, consisting of Crystal Energy, unique costumes, and more, will be available for sale for a limited time. To download Spiral Knights and visit the Clockworks of Cradle today on PC and Mac, visit the Steam store.

King Krogmo’s Coliseum is a vacation getaway for monsters all across the land, boasting a superb resort for fiends who wish to take a break from terrorizing the adventurous knights of Haven. Within the Coliseum, knights from all over The Clockworks battle each other in action-packed duels, with the winners being rewarded special tokens called Krogmo Coins by King Krogmo himself. In turn, these tokens can be used to claim rare and powerful prizes, which can be used either in the arena or in perilous dungeons.

For a limited time, players can also purchase a special bundle package of goodies valued at $45 for just $24.95, which includes:

  • 9,500 Crystal Energy
  • Unique costume helm, Plasmatech Bombhead Mask
  • Unique costume armor, Plasmatech Demo Suit
  • 5 Mist Tanks
