War Rock

Latest additions include a Skill Pointer map and three new vehicles.

Irvine, Ca. - Aug. 7, 2009 - GamersFirst (, a service of K2 Network and one of today's most popular Free2Play online game destinations, announces a new map called Skill Pointer and three new vehicles for War Rock. Along with this new update there will be a 25% experience boost for the weekend. (

Amongst a plenty of new updates is the brand new Skill Pointer map. Skill Pointer is a Conquest Mode map that focuses heavily on vehicle combat. Players on Skill Pointer will have ten seconds of invulnerability to get into a vehicle before fighting to control the neutral base and protect their home base.

Skill pointer will feature three tanks for you to choose from: M109, Japan 90 (J90) and M1A2. J90 uses modular ceramic and steel composite armor. Mounted with 120 mm smoothbore cannon, the J90 packs a powerful punch. M1A2, the other new tank, is equipped with a 7.62 mm machine gun and a 120 mm M256 smoothbore cannon, making this large tank a sturdy opponent. Both, model J90 and M1A2, will only be available on the Skill Pointer map.

"We're excited to release this new update to War Rock" said Chuck Leonard, Assistant Producer, GamersFirst. "The community has asked us for a massive scale player battlefield and I believe we have delivered that request with Skill Pointer".

War Rock is a tactical, modern FPS (First Person Shooter) exploding with intense, fast-paced combat. Armed with the world's deadliest weapons and controlling the most lethal vehicles, players attack three story-driven killer game play modes: In the air, on the land and over the sea. The game is free to download and Free2Play so players can get right into "pwning" other players from around the world.
