More On: Alliance of Valiant Arms

As I mentioned in a previous post, gaming is becoming like television; content pushed on a schedule with seasons and lines that tie neatly together in an organized package. Alliance of Valiant Arms is taking the same tack with its new summer release of new features. Included in this new package is the prison break mission, which might be good, but would likely be better if it was something like those late night prison movies featuring innocent women who are unsure which team they bat for being wrongly accused of a crime, and sentenced to a prison where the uniforms are not really up to code if you know what I mean...

Anyways, ijji keeps em comin...

Alliance of Valiant Arms (A.V.A) Breaks Out Intense Co-Op Action with Prison Break - Rescue Mode

IRVINE, Calif. - June 28, 2010 - Alliance of Valiant Arms (A.V.A) breaks out some hot new summer content, as ijji.com updates its lightning-fast Unreal Engine 3-powered multi-player online first-person shooter (MOFPS) with the addition of Prison Break - Rescue mode. Time is of the essence and only the strongest teams will make it out alive!


Grand Fantasia screenshot 2The Prison Break - Rescue mission tasks players with infiltrating a Neo Russian Federation (NRF) infested infirmary in search of Eva, a glamorous female ally who has been taken prisoner.  Players dive into the mission as an EU soldier and fight their way through unyielding NRF soldiers as they navigate multiple levels and solve environmental puzzles.  By successfully completing the rescue mission, players unlock various rewards, including rare masks for use in A.V.A and in-game currency that can be redeemed for other items. The best players can adjust their level of difficulty to increase the challenge by diving in as part of a four-player or five-player Co-op team.


"With the addition of this new mission, we are bringing even more explosive action to the already frenzied gameplay of A.V.A," said Calvin Yang, vice president of marketing, NHN USA, which hosts ijji.com. "The nature of this rescue mission encourages players to use teamwork to succeed, further solidifying A.V.A as one of the most well rounded first-person shooter experiences available."


In A.V.A, modern warfare hits combat zones around the globe where a formidable battle has broken out between the EU and the 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.
