Joint Ops Breaks Online Gamer Record

Joint Ops Breaks Online Gamer Record

NovaLogic announced that the new multiplayer FPS title "Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising" has set a new world record for simultaneous players in an online FPS game.

On Saturday, June 26, 160 players from around the U.S. connected to the iGames World Record server and played in a single game of Joint Operations. This World Record event is the kick-off of the Official Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising Tour presented by ATI and sponsored by Sapphire. More Joint Operations world record attempts are planned over the summer.

Twin Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records recognizes 160 participants playing Joint Ops on the same server as a new world record. Twin Galaxies will include this accomplishment in a section of the book that focuses on significant milestones that mark the technological and sociological evolution of electronic gaming.

Joint Operations is the only FPS to allow players to participate in mammoth 150-player battles with no subscription fee, more than double the player hosting capability of any other FPS. Incorporating vast maps of up to 50 km sq, a full 24-hour day/night cycle and 29 different land, sea and air vehicles to control, Joint Operations represents a huge leap forward for multiplayer FPS games.

Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising (PC CD ROM) is in stores now. To find out more, follow the download tab above.
