Free-to-play MMO FPS to be shown off at GDC.
Irvine, Ca. – March 20th, 2009 – GamersFirst ( www.gamersfirst.com), a service of K2 Network and one of today's most popular free2play online game destinations, announces Parabellum ( http://gamersfirst.com/parabellum/), a brand new Free2Play massive multiplayer online First persons Shooter, set to invade San Francisco’s Game Developers Conference (GDC).
Parabellum combines the best elements of FPS (First Person Shooter) and MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) games to create an extremely unique and fully customizable gaming experience. Parabellum introduces the first interactive non-linear multiplayer campaigns in addition to an advanced character & weapon development system and realistic and engaging game-play.
“Parabellum will set the standard of what to expect from Free2Play games,” said David Demers, Associate Producer of Parabellum. “Bringing quality Triple-A titles to the Free-to-Play market raises the bar for all and sets GamersFirst apart from the rest.”
Set in a world in a not too distant future, the privatization of global military forces has created highly profitable opportunities for ex-soldiers, mercenaries and adventurers. Gamers must choose their alignments carefully to survive. You must join forces with one of the two foremost covert reconnaissance organizations in the world. The CTF; an organization avowed to keeping anarchy at bay, or the Syndicate; a legion of bloodthirsty rebels bent on destruction and chaos. Each of them are solicited by the C.I.N. a Global Mercenary Network that provides contract missions to each of these factions who vie against one another with the fate of the World as the ultimate prize.
“GamersFirst is a pioneer and market leader of the free-to-play model in Europe
and North America.” Says Frank Trigub, Director/Founding Partner, Acony Games. “We are happy to have such an ideal partner in GamersFirst for Parabellum.”
