Auto Assault Launches Auto Assault Launches

NCsoft announced that Auto Assault launched commercial service in both Europe and North America. Developed by Colorado-based developer, NetDevil, LTD, Auto Assault is the first massively multiplayer online (MMO) game set in a post-apocalyptic world featuring vehicle combat on an epic scale and fully destructable environments.

Auto Assault is available at retailers at a suggested retail price of USD 49.99. The Collector's Edition, which includes a headset to utilise the game's voice chat system, will be available for a suggested retail price of USD 59.99. Both the Standard and Collector's Editions of the game include the first 30 days online game play after which players will be charged a monthly subscription fee of USD 14.99, with discounts available to long-term subscribers. Sixty-day game time cards will also be available at many North American retailers for an expected price of USD 29.99.

The release of Auto Assault represents both a continuation of NCsoft's efforts to provide gamers many compelling products to play online, and the beginning of another service with free content updates and expansions in the years to come. Additionally, a veteran rewards program has been put in place for players who subscribe to Auto Assault within the first thirty days of service. A detailed description of the veteran rewards is available on the Auto Assault website.

In Auto Assault, players choose from three races and venture into a post-apocalyptic Earth wreaking havoc and vying for control over the few resources left. Players can design their characters and customise many different vehicle chassis to make their own unique fleet of death machines. Players may go on missions with others or on their own, craft unique items, and participate in player-versus-player combat via the arena system and contested outpost battles. No matter what they are doing, players are encouraged to interact with the game world by blasting through buildings, leveling towns and destroying just about everything they see.
