Mission Against Terror Invades PAX East with Special Campaign to Benefit Gamers Outreach

TORONTO, ON February 18, 2011—Mission Against Terror (M.A.T.), everyone's favorite free-to-play shooter from Wicked Interactive, today announced that it is bringing its campaign with Gamers Outreach to the second-annual Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) East, Boston Convention&Exhibition Center, March 11-13.

Since December, Wicked Interactive has been working with Gamers Outreach to raise money for a Go-Kart for the Dallas Veteran's Hospital. For every new account created in Mission Against Terror, Wicked Interactive is donating $1USD, with all proceeds donated  directly to the facility.

Project GO KART is an initiative of Gamers Outreach that funds the construction of portable entertainment kiosks which are used to transport video games and other sources of entertainment to patients who have limited access to activities outside their rooms.

Set in a near-future not so different from our own time, M.A.T. pits teams against one another in a bitter battle for the survival of the human race. Unanimously hailed for its solid game-play and wide variety of game modes, M.A.T. has taken North America by storm, after becoming quite popular in Asia and other parts of the world.

Most recently, M.A.T. launched Occupation Mode, the latest game update which brings hardcore, capture-the-flag-style gameplay and a cache of new weapons and other surprises to the supernaturally-charged shooter. For more information, visit: http://mat.subagames.com.
