Redwood City, Calif.—September 29, 2009— Uforia, an online game publisher specializing in massively multiplayer online games, today launched the first closed beta and the full website for its upcoming Online Military FPS, Mercenary Wars. The new website and sign-ups for the closed beta can now be found at: http://mercenarywars.uforia.com where fans of the game can sign up to be in the beta, check out exclusive videos and screen shots, download the game guide, read about the game’s full features and details and more. The closed beta is now live and will run through 5 PM Pacific time on September, 30th.

“It is an exciting time for Mercenary Wars as we give our fans the first opportunity to join in a closed beta for the game and also check out the newly launched Mercenary Wars website,” said JK Kim, CEO of Uforia.“A strong community is a big part of an online game’s success and with the launch of the closed beta, the community can now start to gather and get to know more about Mercenary Wars.”

With the start of the closed beta Uforia has also kicked off several events. The first event,“Bug Squashers” runs today through October 1st and allows players to post the bugs they find during the beta in the forums. The 3 players who post the most confirmed bugs will win a Logitech G7 Gaming mouse, For more information about the event and rules players can visit http://mercenarywars.uforia.com/Announce/Events.aspx?seq=471.

Unlike other first person shooter games available today, Mercenary Wars features a unique stat system that players can use to upgrade and customize their lifelike characters. The combat in the game is designed to feel very realistic, while also allowing players to adjust their speed, accuracy, and health stats. Mercenary Wars is set in the not so distant future in a world where order and society as we know them are a thing of the past. The economies of the world have crashed and have been replaced with total chaos. New alliances have been forged and the world is now controlled by well-trained groups of mercenaries. Players must determine who to swear their allegiance to and fight side-by-side to the death, if necessary, in the quest to ensure becoming the new global powerhouse.

Mercenary Wars will also feature an innovative Artificial Intelligence system where computer controlled“bots” can be used in several ways ranging from practice to enhancing game play. Via four difficulty modes, players can select their desired skill level no matter what their previous FPS experience might be. Other features include multiple gameplay modes, a variety of character types and races, extensive ranking system including more than 50 different character ranks and title, an expansive number of weapons and equipment available for character customization and a built-in player-to-player audio communication tool for enhanced real-world combat simulation.
