Zombie Infection Spreads Through GamersFirst
Halloween Haunts GamersFirst's premier MMO Titles with Zombies, Pumpkins and Promo's
Irvine, Calif. – October 27, 2010 – GamersFirst, today’s most popular Free2Play destination, announced in a statement this morning that its headquarters and games have been breached by a mysterious infection throughout the publisher's premier online MMO's and website (now) www.zombiesfirst.com.
Footage of the infection was first discovered on a weekly vlog produced by a GamersFirst employee of the pseudo name, Neume; where traces of the mysterious transformation first began during a producer interview. Neume's vlogs seem to be the only connection between GamersFirst headquarters and the outside world. Regardless, game operations seem to be intact and are falling in line with new in-game content.
“We are doing the best we can to remedy this strange situation," says Joe Rush, Director of Game Operations for GamersFirst. “It’s not out of character for our staff to play War Rock for several hours at a time, but to do it without blinking (and foaming at the mouth) leaves me feeling a little uneasy. Some of the staff has been in good spirits and are trying to pull through this ordeal, but we have had to separate ourselves from some of our more aggressive infected coworkers, to keep the games alive.”
Games that have been affected by this takeover include:
War Rock The beginning of it all, Zombie Mode slowly infected everything else in the ZombiesFirst world.
Knight Online's special promotions have already begun; get in today to see what havoc has been wreaked in the Knight Online underworld.
9Dragons will hold several new events for users during this time period including:
(October 28-November 11):
Chinese Zombie Event - Zombie's have taken over Hefei. Kill the zombie's to get the Slaying Epithet (Strength +10%, Vital Energy +10%, Stance-Shield +150, Movement Speed +15%)
Sword 2 players will have extra advantages to overcome the zombie apocalypse.
Staying alive won't be easy in War Rock and Sword 2 this season. Producers have prepared a special code to get gamers through these tough times. The only question remains; WillUSurvive?
