MMORPG Developer MindArk Introduce New and Improved Land Grab System
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, March 9, 2011 - MindArk, the company behind the virtual 3D environment Entropia Universe
today announces the upgraded re-introduction of the Land Grab system where
players can fight each other in deadly combat and where the prize has a real
monetary value in Entropia Universe.
The Battle of the Forts is a continuous epic adventure where avatars can
join forces to fight each other to conquer a Land Area that generates income
for the participants as long as they hold it. The system is an integrated
part of the Real Cash Economy system in Entropia Universe, enabling this
"As we are introducing new systems into Entropia Universe it is important
to combine exciting game play with the opportunity of earning money. It adds
an edge that is unique for Entropia Universe. On top of this we also have new
state-of-the-art communication technology in the pipeline that will enhance
the experience a great deal, making it even more real," says MindArk's CEO
Jan Welter Timkrans.
The players have to combine strategy with tactics and social skills
whether they are attacking or defending a Fort. They have to master an array
of skills, ranging from combat, communication and maneuvering vehicles such
as attack helicopters, tanks and armed boats.
The system includes two types of battles. One is Fort vs. Fort - a
point-based system where the players themselves set the rules for what prizes
will be handed out. The other, Land Grab Battle, is based on a situation
where there is only one Fort situated on a Land Area. To take the land, the
players must first take charge of the Fort and destroy the Main Control -
upon that, the real battle for the Land Area begins. One thing is for certain
- Destruction pays off!
