Acclaim Games Partners with TrialPay to Give Away Virtual Currency

by Rainier on May 3, 2008 @ 6:42 a.m. PDT

Acclaim Games is taking its free-to-play gaming model one step further by partnering with TrialPay to give away its virtual currency, Acclaim Coins, for free. Using TrialPay, players get Acclaim Coins for free by trying or buying real world items such as clothes, send flowers or hundreds of other offers.

Using TrialPay, players get Acclaim Coins for free by trying or buying an offer from blue-chip advertisers. Now, even players facing gaming budget restrictions can get more by earning Acclaim Coins when they buy clothes, send flowers or choose from hundreds of other TrialPay offers. Through this partnership, Acclaim Games gains loyal customers and players get new upgrades for free. With TrialPay, everyone wins!

“We’re excited to make our special features more accessible to players,” said Howard Marks, CEO of Acclaim Games. “Our new partnership with TrialPay allows more players the opportunity to customize their characters and use new features at no additional cost.”

Acclaim Coins are redeemable for virtual items in any of Acclaim’s five free-to-play multiplayer online games. Players can use the Coins to change their character’s wardrobe, upgrade their weapons and improve their skill packs. All of these features and more are free for users who complete one TrialPay offer.

TrialPay uses advertising revenue to pay the full value of each customer’s virtual currency, thus turning players into paying customers. This partnership—TrialPay’s first with a massively multiplayer online game publisher—could revolutionize the MMOG industry by giving players total access to games and special features for free.

“We’re proud to partner with Acclaim Games,” said Alex Rampell, TrialPay’s CEO. “TrialPay gives players hundreds of ways to pay for virtual currency and ensures that there’s an offer for everyone.”
