Sudden Attack (PC)

“We’re thrilled to officially launch Sudden Attack in North America bringing a new group of gamers the excitement and social experience that more than 30 million registered users world-wide have already tried,” said Jang-Yeol Yoon, Chief Marketing Officer of GameHi, Inc. “With new ways to personalize the game and character's individual look, and incredibly fast and fun casual gameplay, we think Sudden Attack will attract both novice and expert gamers alike.”

The commercial launch marks the unveiling of the in-game cash shop, which will bring another component to the customization of the title, and offer players at all levels the chance to further enhance their gaming experience. Users can now choose from unique weapons not otherwise found in the game, as well as updated characters and functional items, like extra magazines, bonus exp, bonus points, guild emblems, and more.
