NCsoft Rolls Out New 'Auto Assault' Update

by Rainier on Aug. 30, 2006 @ 3:57 p.m. PDT

Combine fast-paced vehicular combat with high-tech, futuristic weaponry and hundreds of intense skills and you get Auto Assault – a unique departure from traditional Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs). Hop in your own customized cars, semis, and motorcycles and prepare to fight the mutated creatures and bandits of Auto Assault's post-apocalyptic world. Battle other players both in arenas and in epic race vs. race wars for control of the regions in a devastated Earth. Auto Assault uses the power of the Havok physics engine to let you make insane jumps, send obstacles flying and even blast bridges, buildings, fences and trees with your car-mounted rockets. Anything you can hit, you can destroy!

Developed by NetDevil®, LTD, this latest installment for Auto Assault introduces a new arena tournament map and the Coliseum for higher level players. In addition to many new missions in the world, the new arena map, Emergence, contains six types of power-ups players can find and use, and features death matches designed to make player-versus-player combat more fun and promote movement across the map.

The Coliseum, found in Ground Zero, is built for those training to become the post apocalyptic elite. Players at levels 60, 65 and 70 may participate solo or in a convoy and battle wave after wave of increasingly nasty creatures and other surprises for experience, loot, and more.

For new players, the game is simply easier to get into and play. More head-on combat, improved vehicle control, better chassis and weapons earlier in the game, and auto-targeting combine with system-level enhancements to make the lower levels of the game more fun, the destruction more intense, and players feel more successful at the start.

In addition, a suite of powerful items have been introduced that will take players to a new level of skill. Dubbed the Battlemaster Set, these items are only available to players through purchase with outpost tokens. The only way to receive an outpost token is to capture and hold outposts for incremental periods of time. The Battlemaster Set of items is available through certain token vendors in the world. Players donning these items certainly set themselves apart.

In addition to all of this great new content, NCsoft announces a new customer referral program for Auto Assault. Players who successfully recruit their friends to join in the fun can earn free game time. For more information about the referral program.

“We’re excited to bring these updates to Auto Assault,” said Todd Keister, producer for Auto Assault at NCsoft. “These features really kick the game up a notch in terms of carnage, destruction, and meaningful content. For those who haven’t seen the game since beta, I really encourage you to check it out now. And be ready for more, because we’ve got additional enhancements in the works.”

Auto Assault is available at retailers in North America and Europe as well as at the NCsoft online store at www.plaync.com. The game includes the first month of online game play. After the first month, players will be charged a monthly subscription fee of US$14.99.
