Vogster Entertainment announced today two separate news items that should peak your interest if you are a CrimeCraft
First: An in-game tournament called "Most Wanted" will take place from September 15 through October 15. Anyone with a currently active account is eligible to participate. Basically you try to be as bad (well, good at playing the game of being evil) as you can be in the game for the allotted time. When the period ends, they do some magic with a weighted random drawing to decide who wins an Alienware Area 51 M17x laptop, an ATI 3870 X2 video card or other items.
Second: If you aren't able to be active in the CrimeCraft
tournament, you can still enjoy the new content that was pushed. There is a new PvE mode where you can take on AI controlled bosses and a new NPC gang. A new loot system, an in-game newspaper, and "Most Wanted" billboards also make the list of additions.
The game's official website
has all the juicy details for both of the above.

These features will be rolled out in the first major content update that will drop into the game in October.
“Offering real-world prizes via our in-game co-marketing partners – such as cutting-edge gaming systems from Alienware and graphics adapters from ATI – coupled with ever-expanding in-game content, reflects our commitment to continually increase the value gamers enjoy from their purchase and the persistent world of CrimeCraft,” said Mario Kroll, Director of Marketing at Vogster.
