Mission Against Terror Celebrates First Birthday with "Aftermath" Update
New Mode, New Weapons and Other Surprises Come to Popular Free-to-Play MMORPG Shooter
to Mark Milestone Year in North America
TORONTO, ON September 2, 2011—Mission Against Terror (http://mat.subagames.com)
has had quite a year. After launching in North America in September 2010, M.A.T.
went on to become a favorite among back-to-basics, no-nonsense shooter fans. Some
even hailed it as the "best free-to-play shooter out there today."
To celebrate the game, and the community that helped make it so popular, Wicked
Interactive, publisher of M.AT. as well as the recently acclaimed Bounty Hounds
Online, is launching "Aftermath," the latest update to the game which brings a new
gameplay mode, new weapons and other goodies.
"Bringing Mission Against Terror to North American has been an amazing experience,"
said Sam Ho, Director, Wicked Interactive. "From the start we saw an immediate reaction
to the visceral style and look reminiscent of CrossFire, Combat Arms and AVA.
"This reaction only deepened as an unique crew of fans developed around the game
with the same no-nonsense attitude as M.A.T. itself. They told us what we were doing
right and what we were doing wrong, and the developers made sure that their feedback
was incorporated into each new build. We cannot thank the M.A.T. community enough.
Without them, M.A.T. wouldn't be the great game it has become. And the game would
have been lost amidst the hyper-competitive landscape.
"With 'Aftermath,' the cycle continues. We know that everyone is going to love the
latest surprises the developers have cooked up, including Duel Mode and the Tactical
M4A1, the official weapon of the M.A.T. first birthday celebration!"
NEW GAME MODE: Duel Mode
Duel Mode can be played either solo or in teams. In a team environment, a duel is
played out one on one, team member versus team member, until an entire team has
been eliminated. The team that wins scores a point, and then it resets again and
again until one team scores the required amount of points. This takes place in what
is called the "Battle Colosseum," while the duels themselves take place on the arena
With solo duels, players can opt to play ranked matches. Each player starts off
with 1500 points. How many points a player gets (or loses) depends on the outcome
of the match along with the points difference of the two players. If there's a bigger
disparity between the two, more points are won/lost.
These points tie into new ranks that all players will have.
There are 15 ranks in total, the lowest being "Fresh Meat." Other titles that can
be earned include "Journeyman," "Seasoned," "Duelist, "Vicious,""Gladiator," etc.
• The Tactical M4A1 is the official weapon of the M.A.T. first birthday celebration.
As we know you's agree, it's a bad mofo.
• Just like socks, you can never have too many submachine guns. Enter: the Type
97, a high-caliber solution to every problem.
• You know that M500 magnum you've been drooling over, but have kept missing in
the points department? Well, guess what, it's now for sale in the M.A.T. store.
You know you want it, treat yourself!
• Those of you who enjoy doing it like a bronco will be happy to know that you can
suit up with cowboy and cowgirl costumes. These and other wacky outfits, along with
a complete line of masks and sprays await you.
Set in a near-future not so different from our own time, M.A.T. pits teams against
one another in a bitter battle for the survival of the human race. Unanimously hailed
for its solid gameplay and wide variety of game modes, M.A.T. has taken North America
by storm, after becoming quite popular in Asia and other parts of the world.
