MEDIA ALERT: burda:ic Launches Latest Update for S4 League - Season 1, New Weapons and In-Game Event Available

MUNICH - May 24, 2011

burda:ic, a leading publisher of online games worldwide, today announced the latest update for popular online third-person shooter S4 League. This new update for the Dark Lightning expansion features two new weapons—the Shootingstar Spark Rifle and Shockwave Gun— as well as a new in-game event which offers additional PEN when spending PEN during the event window.

The Shootingstar Spark Rifle, a popular fan favorite, is now available as a G’s Capsule. This short-ranged automatic rifle delivers massive energy hits and is great for close-up skirmishes, but loses accuracy when fighting enemies long distance, giving players a tougher time with opponents positioned further away. Additionally, the new Shootingstar Spark Rifle provides users with permanent Force Pack Stats and with the purchase of a G’s capsule, players have the chance of obtaining either the standard Spark Rifle (1– 30 days), event coupons, eSper chips (to boost the reload speed), or up to 100.000 PEN!

Also available in the weapon cache is the Shockwave Gun, a brand-new Dark Lightning weapon that shoots sparks with a circulating thunderbolt, and is guaranteed to shock all enemies with fear. Players that login within the next 7 days will be able to acquire this gun for free.

Finally, burda:ic is currently hosting a PEN spender discount event, where players are rewarded with discounts for spending PEN over the next couple weeks, so be sure to act fast and take advantage of this limited-time special promo.
