Mission Against Terror Unveils Brand-New Weapon for Gamers Who Like to Get Up-Close-and-Personal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

TORONTO, ON November 23, 2010—The chainsaw comes to Mission Against Terror, everyone's favorite free-to-play shooter. Yes, that's right: the most-requested new weapon is finally here. And it couldn't have come at a better time.

M.A.T.'s popularity is soaring. Since its North American launch in September, the game has been embraced by FPS fans everywhere, as well as the likes of Alienware Arena, who recently ran a contest featuring the title. Currently in open beta, M.A.T. is setting new standards for the free-to-play category as it readies for its first major upgrade, dubbed the November Massacre, set to debut shortly with its hotly anticipated Terminator Mode.

"Jason used one. So did Michael Myers. And don't forget those fine fellows from Texas. They took the chainsaw and had themselves a big ol' massacre, " said Sam Ho, Director, Wicked Interactive. "We can talk about the caliber of ranged automatic weapons all day, but the chainsaw is a special weapon. It's for gamers who like to get up-close-and-personal."

Also, for those of you who missed it, here's the recently leaked Terminator gameplay trailer:

TERMINATOR MODE 101:

Much like Mummy Mode, you cannot select your team in Terminator Mode.  A random amount of players are spawned in as Terminators, and it's their job to survive until the time limit expires while the rest of the players are mummies. Terminators have a very large health pool, increased ammunition and health/ammunition packs from the map while the mummies get infinite respawns and different abilities. The Terminators must work together to survive while the mummies must work together to bring the Terminators down. 

The first map to be introduced with Terminator Mode is The Asylum, the believed birthplace of these enhanced mummies. Mummies with enhanced abilities are too much for normal soldiers, and so the Terminators have been called in to exterminate them!  Though expensive to produce, the Terminators can be remotely controlled and thus loss of human life is not a factor when using them.

Meet the Enhanced Mummies:

The Martyr– Through sacrifice, the Martyr can create a large explosion which causes a significant amount of damage to an enemy Terminator.  The Martyr has 3 seconds upon activation of his ability to get as close as possible to the Terminator before setting himself off.  The Martyr has low health so he will need to sneak up or use other mummies as cover to get in close.

The Hunter– The hunter has superior running speed and jumping ability.  A skilled player can continue clawing away at an enemy Terminator while running in circles around him or jumping over him to confuse him.

The Vampire– The Vampire can steal health from a Terminator.  Combined with running around while attacking the Terminator, a Vampire can theoretically tank a Terminator by stealing more health than the Terminator can deal in damage.

The Psychic– The Psychic can temporarily disable a Terminator’s movement by emitting an electronically charged beam that overloads the Terminator’s circuitry.  Once the Psychic has a Terminator locked up, the only way to free its victim is for a friend to kill the Psychic.

The Wraith– The Wraith is a ghostly menace who has somehow tapped into a Ghost’s ability to appear almost invisible.  In a good spot, the Wraith can continue to strike at his opponent while they wonder what is hitting them when they look around.

The Behemoth– The Behemoth has superhuman strength and a fearsome appearance.  He is much larger than most of the mummies, has an enormous amount of health, and can pound the ground to deliver a damaging shockwave to nearby enemies.  Focus fire to bring these bad boys down!

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.
