NIKITA ONLINE Announces the Commercial Launch of Russian Peta City

7 th of July, Moscow. — NIKITA ONLINE makes an announcement on the completion of the open beta test for Run and Fire, a renamed version of Korean-made MMOFPS Peta City already mastered by Russian cybersport mavens.

Due to the game’s initial quality delivered by Galaxy Gate programmers, the overall testing period for Run and Fire ( http://raf.gamexp.ru/), globally known as Peta City, outlasted barely a month. About 30 000 users registered on the GameXP entertainment web-portal joined the game during the testing span.

Eminent cyberathlete Alexey "Cypher" Yanushevsky (multiple champion and prizewinner of QuakeCon, ESWC, DreamHack  European Extreme Masters, ASUS Open etc.) and renown Russian-spoken e-sportscaster Constantin "Leniniw" Sivko were among those thousands of gamers who gave Run and Fire a try and came to like it.  

Captured on camera and provided with first-hand commentaries on how to play it in a pro gamer’s way, their gameplay is now available on Youtube: http://youtu.be/c2ShDC2eU_c.

Run and Fire open beta test was concluded with large-scale update adding new items, maps and modes to the game.

About the game:

Run and Fire pictures how would it be for those who survive the end of the world to fight for their lives on debris left in aftermath of a series of global calamities. A player has three classes of characters to pick from: assault, raider or sniper. Every class boasts its unique perks so that simply by switching between field assignments right on respawning spot users can modify the whole experience. 10 game modes (special speed mode and co-op mode including) with 20 different locations also give gamers a lot of opportunities to do so.
