Unlike other first person shooter games available today, Mercenary Wars features a unique stat system that players can use to upgrade and customize their lifelike characters. The combat in the game is designed to feel very realistic, while also allowing players to adjust their speed, accuracy, and health stats. Mercenary Wars is set in the not so distant future in a world where order and society as we know them are a thing of the past. The economies of the world have crashed and have been replaced with total chaos. New alliances have been forged and the world is now controlled by well-trained groups of mercenaries. Players must determine who to swear their allegiance to and fight side-by-side to the death, if necessary, in the quest to ensure becoming the new global powerhouse.
“It is an exciting time for Mercenary Wars as we give our fans the first opportunity to join in a closed beta for the game and also check out the newly launched Mercenary Wars website,” said JK Kim, CEO of Uforia. “A strong community is a big part of an online game’s success and with the launch of the closed beta, the community can now start to gather and get to know more about Mercenary Wars.”
With the start of the closed beta Uforia has also kicked off several events. The first event, “Bug Squashers” runs today through October 1st and allows players to post the bugs they find during the beta in the forums. The 3 players who post the most confirmed bugs will win a Logitech G7 Gaming mouse, For more information about the event and rules, visit the official website.
