In a shameless attempt to drum up extra business at the expense of APB, now that the plug has been officially pulled, Hi-Rez Studios, the creators of Global Agenda, have sent out an open letter to all Shooter/MMO fans.
Today, we mourn our latest fallen colleague, APB. In making APB, Realtime Worlds had a bold vision to make an MMO devoid of traditional tab-targeting, cast bars, and die-roll combat. We honor their effort and innovation, and greatly mourn the game’s closing.
Sadly, the APB server shutdown leaves their entire community with nothing to shoot or blow up tonight!
So between today and Friday, September 24, 2010, we are offering refugees from APB and other Shooter/MMOs an opportunity to join Global Agenda’s growing community more easily and affordably than ever.
Having adopted a free-to-play model recently, and at the now discounted price of £13.12 (a whopping 30% off) it doesn’t sound like a bad deal. I’m sure there will be plenty of APB fans looking for someone to take their anger out on over the coming weeks and Global Agenda seems a good fit, even if the only similarities between the two are that they both have guns.
You can purchase Global Agenda on the game’s web-store prior to September 24, 2010, using the promotion code “LongLiveShooterMMOs” and receive the discount.
