FreeStyle: Big spring festival to be held in March

Major contents update on March 2nd and various events to attract users

Seoul, February 26 - MMO sports game FreeStyle Street Basketball, serviced at global game portal GameKiss, will launch a big-scale update and special events to celebrate the coming spring of 2010. The fourth major update since the game's commercialization in May 2009 will faithfully reflect users' feedback and provide many benefits to participants.

This big-scale update which will be carried out for three times from March 2nd includes nearly 100 items that will satisfy users' needs. A new decorative item, 16-Level special character slot and a face-customizing item will allow users to express themselves better in more diverse ways. Also, in order to live up to the diverse, fast-changing fashion trend, items that were permanently sold will now be sold during a set period. The price of the items will go down instead, reducing users' financial burden. Among newly added FreeStyle Skills is the "Power Rebound" which has been requested mostly by centers and big guys. The items are expected to become very popular after its release.

Furthermore, reflecting users' needs for new courts, FreeStyle will add five brand-new courts for the first time since the game's launch. Winter versions of two popular courts, the Big Flow and the Factory Yard, were added, and The Palace whose background is an antique European palace will add new energy and style to the game.

Many bugs will be also corrected in this update. Some ranking bugs, single player errors and other minor item bugs will be corrected, improving the game environment to another level.

FreeStyle's GM Roxy said this update intends to reflect every small opinion of users which have been put on hold due to important system patches. "I hope users find small things they needed through this update," said Roxy of this update.

The "Resurrection of Forgotten FreeStylers" which will start the Big Spring Festival on March 2nd is prepared for newly beginning users who haven't accessed FreeStyle for more than a month. Together with it, thefollowing "Throw in Extra 2" event will flood users with an abundance of game money, points and items.

March will be a month of a very generous festival.
