Global Agenda Shoots Sub In Head

I sense... aggression.

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 details on their site. I want to write something like “Go On A Global Agenda Bender” but I’m not sure if that’s offensive and/or make any sense.

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 here. People wanting to check it out for no pennies can get on the free trial here.

Anyone still playing this? How is it coming along?

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, and jump like a Kung Fu hero. Admittedly, I also got a bit tired of the game before I got properly stuck into the territorial conquest stuff, but the PvP generally is fun, and it’s definitely worth taking a look at for free.

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 about the PvE stuff, the rewards aren’t high enough.)

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 and get some sort of RPS team established.

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…

It’s Getting Interesting: Global Agenda Trailer

Crikey, it really does look great.

Global Agenda is out on the 1st of February! How did that happen so fast? The online spy game (although still no one has figured out what it has to do with spying) is a fascinating mix of traditional MMO and multiplayer shooter. This is a claim that’s been made before, but when I played it at E3 I was confused to discover it actually seems to deliver this. I’m intrigued to see how it all plays out once it reaches its meta-game, which appears to introduce the third prong, strategic battles. Anyhow, there’s a new trailer out to remind us all it’s only a couple of weeks away, and you can see it below.
