The Pirates Have Landed! Now They Need Fans to Design their Jolly Roger Flag
HONG KONG – January 12, 2012 – The long-awaited expansion to the popular free-to-play online Action RPG Conquer Online, titled Invasion of Pirates, raises its Jolly Roger flag in celebration of today’s launch. The new expansion introduces the swashbucklin’ Pirate class to the non-stop action of the game. With a slew of malicious new abilities, the shores of Gale Shallows to explore, as well as new monsters and boss battles, this is easily one of the biggest expansions to date in Conquer Online.
The new Pirate class not only introduces modern gunplay to the traditional Chinese combat between ninjas, monks and Taoists, but it also brings an entirely new playstyle to the experience. Players will need every bit of firepower they can get, as bands of these nasty pirates begin to arrive upon a newly discovered island in search of a dark and mysterious treasure. It will be up to players to ensure that these pirates do not succeed in their mission!
Those familiar with Conquer Online know that the team likes to celebrate in style, and the launch of the new expansion today is no exception. Conquer Online is holding the Black Flag Design Event with cash prizes for the winners totaling over $3,500 USD! Fans can design their own Pirate flags and enter to win the cash prizes. The winning designs will be implemented into the game, and every time another player purchases one of these flags, the designer will receive 50% of the sale.
New severs have been added to the game so players can join now and enjoy countless hours of seaworthy entertainment with the Invasion of Pirates expansion and the events celebrating the launch, both online and offline. Players who join now will receive a special item pack with several helpful items to excel in their adventure.
