Redwood City, Calif-January 14, 2010 - Uforia, a new online game publisher specializing in massively multiplayer online games, today announced the all-new character lineup for its upcoming online modern warfare first-person-shooter Mercenary Wars. See below for full details of the four intriguing characters including Iron Strom, Saladin, Sensou and Blood Loss. For more information and to check out the game which is currently in open beta, players can visit http://uforia.mercenarywars.com.
Iron Storm is the highest ranking female in the International Hessian Order. She founded the group in order to protect the North American region from newly established groups in other parts of the world.
Clare began her military career with the United States Army and then moved on to other branches within the Armed Forces in order to gain expertise in various areas of modern warfare. She excelled within every area of military specialization, but specialized in covert operations with a focus on warfare in the Middle East.
Saladin is the founder of the Medjay Mercenary Unit which he created to defend the Middle Eastern region from other mercenary units.
Originally born in Yemen, Saladin traveled throughout the region training with some of the most renowned military units and even spending time with paramilitary groups mastering guerrilla tactics.
His driving force is the notion that only natives of that region should have control over the natural resources and land, and he will do anything to push invading forces out of this territory.
Sensou is the female leader of the United Asian Front after gaining control of the position from the founder of the group, Hyun Sugiyama, during a violent but swift rebellion. Her success stems from being able to unite the various Asian cultures under the umbrella organization -- the United Asian Front. Prior to joining the United Asian Front, Sensou (then known by her birth name, Miyuki) was a researcher at various weapons development institutes throughout Asia and Europe. Her knowledge of advanced weapons systems led Sugiyama to recruit her into the organization to develop weapons with which they could eventually overpower the military forces in the region.
"Blood Loss", so named for his reputation for his aggressive tactics on the battlefield, is the second-in-command of the International Hessian Order. Along with "Iron Storm" he leads the International Hessian Order. His expertise are weapons that not only overpower the enemy, but completely aniline them. His main focus is not strategy, but logistics of how to win any particular battle. He is also the official tester of new weapons systems that the researchers create.
"We are excited to reveal the unique and interesting characters in Mercenary Wars, and we think our community of players will have a blast when they experience each of their unique, multi-faceted characteristics," said Chris Keswani, Marketing Manager of Uforia.
About Mercenary Wars
Unlike other first person shooter games available today, Mercenary Wars features a unique stat system that players can use to upgrade and customize their lifelike characters. The combat in the game is designed to feel very realistic, while also allowing players to adjust their speed, accuracy, and health stats. Mercenary Wars is set in the not so distant future in a world where order and society as we know them are a thing of the past. The economies of the world have crashed and have been replaced with total chaos. New alliances have been forged and the world is now controlled by well-trained groups of mercenaries. Players must determine who to swear their allegiance to and fight side-by-side to the death, if necessary, in the quest to ensure becoming the new global powerhouse.
Mercenary Wars will also feature an innovative Artificial Intelligence system where computer controlled "bots" can be used in several ways ranging from practice to enhancing game play. Via four difficulty modes, players can select their desired skill level no matter what their previous FPS experience might be. Other features include multiple gameplay modes, a variety of character types and races, extensive ranking system including more than 50 different character ranks and title, an expansive number of weapons and equipment available for character customization and a built-in player-to-player audio communication tool for enhanced real-world combat simulation.
