ARTIX ANNOUNCES FRIDAY THE 13TH
“UN-LIVE” EVENT IN MMORPG ADVENTUREQUEST WORLDS
Artix Entertainment’s MMORPG
AdventureQuest Worlds will host an in-game “Un-Live Event” on Friday the 13th at
8:00 pm EDT.
Who would be crazy enough to board a
ghost ship at night on Friday the 13th and sail through monster-infested waters
in search of an uncharted island containing a cursed instrument? What.. you? Are
you insane?!?!!?!?!! Good! You are hereby invited to join us on our first ever
live musical event featuring VOLTAIRE!
How else could we top the last
Friday the 13th? The ghost ship and its crew of undead pirates will arrive this
Friday. We will set sail after the sun sets at 8:00 pm EDT. They say dead men
tell no tales, but these salty boneheads will not stop talking about the cursed
Guitar of Skull Punch island! It is said that whoever obtains the guitar will be
granted fame, fortune and…immortality! We are going to help Voltaire get it!
Prepare yourself for a live adventure unlike anything every done before!
Musical guest Voltaire will be
playing three songs from his newest album while Artix, Safiria and AQW Team try
to survive the adventure with you. Be a part of history and experience it in
real time as the event is broadcasted to all event rooms, on all servers.
Following the live event, we will
release a re-playable version of the adventure (but trust us, you want to be
there live as it is happening!). There is a good chance that this event will
bring down our entire gaming network… and because it is live… ANYTHING can
(and probably will) happen…. see you Friday!

launched in mid-October, has captured the interest of 4.7 million players so
