ABANDON INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT REVEALS PUGNACIOUS PETS IN FREAKY CREATURES
Upon Reaching Level 11, Creatures' Pets Can Help During Battle in Upcoming MMO Game
Abandon Interactive Entertainment today released new screenshots showing Creatures' pets in battle in the upcoming online creature building and battling game, Freaky Creatures. Hitting shelves in March 2009, Freaky Creatures combines the best of online multiplayer PC gaming, collectible action figures, virtual worlds and social networking.
As players win battles in Freaky Creatures they collect Creature Credits which can be redeemed at the Creature Club Store online. Creature Credits can be used to purchase one of five pets at the game's launch. Upon acquiring a pet, players can name and assign it to a specific Creature, and have it appear in the Creatures' lairs and in the lobbies. After a Creature reaches level 11, its pet can then aid him in battle against other players.
Pets can assist Creatures in battle through one of two forms - mean or nice. In a mean state, pets will deal damage to a Creature's opponent. While in their nice form they will lend defensive abilities. A pet's form is chosen at random so it will be up to the player to wait a couple of rounds before a specific effect is activated.
The new screenshots show the five different pets that will be available for purchase at the online Creature Club Store when the game ships to retail. The screenshots reveal the two forms pets take on amidst Creature combat, as well as show the advantage of having a pet alongside a Creature in battle.
The Freaky Creatures experience begins with a starter pack that includes two action figures and a one gigabyte reusable flash drive. Once players have created their unique creature they can jump straight into battle or build a lair in which they can care for their creature and hang out with friends. Players can also participate in the Freaky Creatures community, personalize their homepage, play mini-games, join tournaments, check leaderboards, trade items, read animated comics, enter contests, form teams and much more in the ever expanding Freaky Creatures Universe. Starter packs will be available in March 2009 for $19.99.
