10th February 2006 - Prize Fight and HEXUS are joining forces to bring gamers the ultimate in online competitions - playing Electronic Arts' Battlefield 2 for cash prizes and starting off with two £5 boosts to their fighting funds.
Prize Fight (http://www.prizefight.co.uk), the online gaming system launched earlier this year, allows gamers to log in and play for cash prizes using online funds.
Electronic Arts' Battlefield 2 - the ultimate online team game - joins Counter Strike: Source, Half Life 2 and many others on Prize Fight's table of massively successful online contests.
The special £5 HEXUS.net credit goes into their Prize Fight account when players first join using the exclusive promotional code on HEXUS.gaming.
New sign-ups can access the exclusive HEXUS.gaming promotional code ONLY by visiting http://gaming.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=4642
In addition to this, and to mark the launch of Battlefield 2 on Sunday, 12th February, the first 500 players who verify their Battlefield 2 game on Prize Fight will receive £5 credit to their Prize Fight account.
These offers can be used in conjunction with each other so there's now £10 up for grabs to start the ball rolling!
Prize Fight is run by gamers for gamers and has developed a system that actively encourages team-play and prevents cheating. To encourage team play, Prize Fight has brought in additional 'team win' rules that aim to put a stop to lone-wolf players hogging the spawn points.
Members pay to join games. Entrance fees go towards the prize. The more people that play, the bigger the prize. With sign-ups costing as little as £1, existing events have proven to be hugely popular.
HEXUS and HEXUS.gaming are delighted to be involved with Prize Fight's goal of delivering to the masses fun online gaming tournaments coupled with cash prizes.
Members can play as often as they like. There is no limit on the number of games they can play so, theoretically, there's no limit on the money that can be won.
