It's called Recursive Colony, and is free to all players. But what is it? Well: "Recursive Colony puts the players against an army of self-replicating robots invading the once-safe haven of Dome City." It also adds new PvE and PvP maps, the ability…

Global Agenda Remains Free, Expands

In April, Global Agenda expanded its free-to-play model to encompass those who had bought the game digitally. It seems that this was a very good thing for Hi-Rez Studios because the game is due to receive its largest update yet and that too shall be free. To everyone, no matter how or when they joined the game. As well as adding plenty of tweaks and…

Hi-Rez Boasts Of F2P Successes

Speaking to PC Gamer, Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris said of the decision to take Global Agenda free-to-play: “We have many many more people creating accounts every day, many more people playing concurrently, our revenues are higher than they ever have been before which means we can develop content and put it into the game faster than ever before,” and also: “We now have five times…

Global Agenda Is Free From… Now

As Quintin mentioned was about to happen last week, Global Agenda is now free to play. Which it sort of was before. But now it's all free to play, even if you didn't buy the box. What they've done here, right, is called it, okay, "Free Agent". See, because it's a game that's ostensibly about spies (except it really isn't) and it's free, see? Geddit?!…

Genda Bender: Global Agenda Now Free

Yes! Massively mediocre multiplayer shooter Global Agenda will soon join Dungeons & Dragons Online and Lord of the Rings Online as the latest subscription-based game to go completely free. Except it's a bit weirder in Global Agenda's case, since it always offered the option of playing a cut down experience if you just bought the boxed copy, but whatever. Come "mid April" the new 1.4…

A Competition To Win Global Agenda Codes?

UPDATE: Sorry, I forgot to close this. Consider it closed! Keys going out now. Oh, what's this then? I've got a few Steam codes for Global Agenda. They've arrived to celebrate and/or promote the retail launch of the game in the UK. Give them away, you say? To you guys? Well, I suppose I could. Oh, what the hell. Send an email over to this…

Global Agenda Gets “Open Zone”, Other Stuff

Shooty persistent-world type game Global Agenda has undergone a bunch of changes since launch, the biggest of those having just gone live within the game today. These include the "Open Zone" - which is a wide-open PvE space that you can go off and do missions in, a bit like a traditional MMO- and also, more significantly, the fact that there is no longer any…

Global Agenda Shoots Sub In Head

News reaches us via the internet and the whispering of swallows that shooty-MMO Global Agenda has changed its model, removing the need for a subscription to play its highest level content. You can play the first fifteen levels with the trial but then need to actually buy the game to shoot as long as you like (Which is 33% off on Steam's current enormo-sale). More…

Global Agenda “Sandstorm” Enormo-Patch

Hi-Rez's MMOFPS MMOTPS (phew, lucky we got that one right, my credibility was in danger!) Global Agenda is getting a hefty patch today, with loads more PvE missions, new PvP maps, and a totally refurbished world-conquest system designed to bring the agency vs agency war onto a single global map. All servers will, apparently, be down today due to the upgrade. Full patch notes are…

Global Free Trial On The Agenda

Hi-Rez send word that their free trial for Global Agenda, which is now also available via Steam, allows anyone to play the game for free, up to level fifteen. You can even create eight different characters along the way, so you get a taste of the different mechanisms. Personally I always enjoyed the nippy little recon chaps, because you had a sword, could turn invisible,…

Global Agenda: RPS Agency

Okay, we've created an agency in Global Agenda, because we'd like a crack at that conquest game, which I should point out is open to all players, even non-subscribers, until March. The agency is simply called RPS, and anyone should be able to sign up. So come join us if you're in-game. (I'm rather enjoying the PvP games playing as a mercenary, but not sure…

Global Agenda Has Launch On Its Agenda

Sci-fi shooter with clever MMO territory bits, Global Agenda, launches today at 12pm EST, which I think is about an hour from now. Are there any RPS folks playing? I've not had a chance to play yet, but I'll be looking to hook up with RPS folks for high-fives and game-worth-examination purposes over the coming week. Post in comments if you're in-game and we'll try…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits. Meanwhile, others that we expected to land, such The Old Republic, have already fled to 2011. Read on as the clouds in our crystal ball roll back...

Hands-On With Global Agenda

Via the Eurogamer Expo, we got some time with Global Agenda. Here's the hands-on experience, complete with some input from the developers themselves. Global Agenda is a game straddling two worlds. It has two different payment schemes, and two different games within itself, almost. It’s a multiplayer third person shooter, with a class based system and jetpacks. But it’s also a huge sprawling PvE/PvP MMO,…

Global Agenda Gets Trailer Happy

It's a Global Agenda visual festival! Five new videos have appeared, showing off various aspects of the online shooter-cum-MMO. Having had a play of it recently, it's a game I'm really looking forward to playing more of, finding out how it transitions between the initial co-op shooty quests and the latter PvP game. Well, follow that link for all the details. Meanwhile, the many videos…

RPS At E3: Global Agenda

Global Agenda requires you to change your mind. Despite being built in the Unreal 3 engine, and despite looking really rather fine, it presents itself as an MMO. It's a third person view of your character, with a tray of icons along the bottom of the screen, health and energy top left. But try and play it like an MMO and you're going to end…

“Spy-Fi”: Global Agenda Footage

Embedded below is a huge video trailer for the forthcoming action MMO, Global Agenda, featuring its executive producer Todd Harris. The video covers a huge amount of material, discussing everything from the way in which the instanced combat missions are linked together to divide 60-man PvP raids into half a dozen smaller, mission-based systems, to the over-arching construction of bases by player factions. Harris says…

The World Is Enough: Global Agenda

2009's set to be a funny old year for MMOs. On the one hand, we've got The Old Republic and Love on opposite ends of the spectrum, both promising important, enticing changes to an often static genre. On the other, there's the distant thunder of how badly 2008 went for so many existing massively multiwotsits - last year cost us Tabula Rasa, Hellgate, Mythos and…
