IRVINE, CALIF. – Nov. 12, 2009 – The wait is over. Modern warfare is front and center on the hardcore online gaming portal ijji.com with the launch of the highly-anticipated and ambitious Unreal Engine 3-powered multi-player online first-person shooter (MOFPS), Alliance of Valiant Arms (A.V.A). Prepare for an intense battle to rage as online gamers receive a beautifully crafted, heart-pounding free-to-play game that answers the call of duty. Alliance of Valiant Arms transports the action-hungry and fragging elite to present day, war-torn cityscapes with the promise of combat that blurs the lines of reality.

“Once gamers play A.V.A for themselves, they will wonder why they ever paid a cent for a game,” said Philip Yun, CEO, NHN USA, Inc. “The launch of Alliance of Valiant Arms should have retail-based games nervous, because it isn’t just going to blow online gamers minds, but those of console gamers as well.”
Numerous maps depicting actual modern-day cities obliterated as combat zones and realistic rag-doll physics to animate the atrocities of battle may have gamers pinching themselves to ensure that they are not actually crawling on the front lines. With the launch of Alliance of Valiant Arms, ijji.com is yet again bestowing their community and the online world with a polished game that offers intense high-stakes action, clean imagery and unique battle modes – for free.
Seasoned FPS players, such as Justin “Prank” DeMara, a member of Team Pandemic’s Call of Duty 4 division, lauded A.V.A as boasting “Fast gameplay, heavy amounts of teamwork, replayability.” Having jumped into early versions of the game as well, his colleague Joseph “Nabore” Amorosa commented on the technical nature of the gameplay, and how “[A.V.A] takes more skill to master than Call of Duty games.” While the storyline and platforms between the two titles vary, the consistent provision of solid hardcore FPS goodness resonates with any intense PC gamer.
In Alliance of Valiant Arms, modern warfare hits combat zones around the globe where a formidable battle has broken out between the European Union (EU) and the Neo Russian Federation (NRF). Players are tasked with picking a side and squaring off in an unprecedented battle amongst skyscrapers and deserted city blocks. With the signature quick-fragging action of the Unreal Engine 3, combat escalates quickly and tensions run high as players anticipate a bloody clash around every corner. Europe has yet to see more ominous missions or relentless enemies as seen on the streets of Alliance of Valiant Arms.
