Open Beta Goes Live for Mercenary Wars

A Brand New Website, A New
Trailer And All-New Events Are Just Some Of The Highlights Introduced With The
Open Beta Test

Uforia today announced its open beta
test for the highly-anticipated online modern warfare first person shooter,
Mercenary Wars, is live. Starting today at 5 PM PST, open beta testers are
invited to test out all the latest features. Along with the open beta, Uforia is
also introducing a brand-new Mercenary Wars website with new features and a new
trailer for the game. For more information and to participate in the open beta,

After several successful closed beta
tests, all players will now be able to experience this action-packed FPS in a
quest to become the new global powerhouse! The open beta test includes the
latest content update featuring two new maps, the Black Market System cash shop
and a new anti-hack system. Besides the open beta test, players will also be
introduced to the brand-new Mercenary Wars homepage which includes new features.
Along with the new website, Uforia is unveiling an all-new game trailer
highlighting all of the intense action! 

"We want to thank our community for
their help throughout the beta period and recognize that they have made a
massive contribution in helping us develop this game," said Chris Keswani,
Marketing Manager of Uforia. "We are excited to unveil a new website and game
trailer and hope current and new fans will like what’s in store for the game."

Launch Events
In addition to the open beta test, Mercenary Wars will also host three new
events. The first event, Merry Christmas, will feature Santa Hats and Candy Cane
guns available for all players to purchase in the game. The items will be sold
from December 22 through January 5 and will never be released again. The Rank
Raffle is the next event where players will rank up the game to get entered into
a raffle with a chance to win great prizes! The higher the rank the more tickets
the player will receive. Players will randomly be chosen to win a 23" monitor,
gaming mice and more! And finally the last event is the X-Fire Challenge. The
clans that combine for the longest playtime will win large amounts of UFO’s!

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
