IE 6? Just upgrade. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.


It’s Here!


As I think you are probably all aware, Global Agenda will be released on 2 Feb 2010. It is now available for pre-purchase on Steam.

When this game was first announced, there was a bit of excitment about it but that waned a little when we were snubbed from beta testing. Having said that, it still looks like a solid title.

For those that don’t know there are two “forms” of the game.

Non-Subscription – One time purcahse of 44.95 USD.

Creation of up to eight different agent characters
Character visual customization
Access to all combat weapons and devices

Character progression through 30 levels

Subscription – Game + 12.99 USD / month

Access to Alliance vs. Alliance (AvA) World Domination gameplay
A massive scale campaign between player created agencies and alliances over scarce territory and resources on a persistent world map.
Attack and Defend Territories in zones that match your agency’s schedule
Agency and Alliance Management – Create and maintain persistent player groups and officer ranks

Agency Achievement System, Leveling, and Recognition
Auction House with bidding and buyouts
Mail System
Upgrade Text and Voice chat to support multiple channels and strike teams
Player Crafting with blueprints
Additional character customization options including elite character suits, dye colors, and seasonal flair
Ongoing Co-Op content at max character level
Ongoing AvA content, multiplayer PvP content, and new social areas

I will be pre-purchasing the non-subscriprion version to start with (especially as it has 1-month free of the subscription) to see what it is like and then make a call on on-going subscirption. The good thing is that you can play MP maps wither way (just need the subscription for the AvA).

That is all,

    Oh forgot to add that if you pre-purchase there a re a few little extras, the most notable being including access to open-beta in January. All good things come to those that wait.

    Still looks awesome. Will definitely have to pick it up. I could be wrong, but I get the feeling this one might become a clan staple.

    I am currently DL the beta of Global Agenda. FYI, the open beta servers come up on Friday 8 January for us Aussies. We are getting screwed a bit with this as the servers are open at set times which means 5am to 5pm in Oz. It should settle down though once the game goes live.

  5. doesn’t sound like the servers will even be in AU.
