NCsoft Launches Auto Assault

Game publisher further expands massively multiplayer role playing genre with
post-apocalyptic combat, veteran rewards and destruction to the max
 
 
NCsoft® North America announced today that Auto Assault® launched commercial
service in North America, Europe and other select markets worldwide. Developed
by Colorado-based developer, NetDevil®, LTD, Auto Assault is the first massively
multiplayer online (MMO) game set in a post-apocalyptic world featuring vehicle
combat on an epic scale and fully destructible environments.

Auto Assault is available at
retailers in North America at an expected price of US$49.99. The Limited
Edition, which includes a headset to utilize the game’s voice chat system and a
game soundtrack CD, will be available for an expected price of US$59.99. Both
the standard and Limited editions of the game include the first month of online
game play. After the first month, players will be charged a monthly subscription
fee of US$14.99. Sixty-day game time cards will also be available at many North
American retailers for an expected price of US$29.99.

In Auto Assault, players choose from
three races and venture into a post-apocalyptic Earth wreaking havoc and vying
for control over the few resources left. Players can design their characters and
customize many different vehicle chassis to make their own unique fleet of death
machines. Players may go on missions with others or on their own, craft unique
items, and participate in player-versus-player combat via the arena system and
contested outpost battles. No matter what they are doing, players are encouraged
to interact with the game world by blasting through buildings, leveling towns
and destroying just about everything they see.

“Auto Assault is a truly unique
game, and a fantastic addition to our catalog,” said Robert Garriott, CEO of
NCsoft North America. “There is nothing like it in the MMO game space – it is
easy to play, fast, and very fun. Auto Assault gives players the best of action
games, the best of role-playing games and a super-cool world to discover and
destroy.”  

The release of Auto Assault
represents both a continuation of NCsoft’s efforts to provide gamers many
compelling products to play online, and the beginning of another great service
with free content updates and expansions in the years to come. Additionally, a
veteran rewards program has been put in place for players who subscribe to Auto
Assault within the first thirty days of service. A detailed description of the
veteran rewards is available on the
Auto Assault
website

“Compelling characters, tricked-out
vehicles, crazy-fast combat and full-blown destruction make Auto Assault a
blast,” said Scott Brown, president of NetDevil, LTD. “This is the game we’ve
wanted to play for years; it feels good to launch commercial service. Now the
real work starts – today marks the beginning of our ideas for the product and we
look forward to rolling out new content for players to enjoy.”
