ANARCHY REIGNS™ IN THE NEW YEAR!
PlatinumGames’ Insane Fighting Extravaganza due January 2013
SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON— October 19, 2012 —SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. are pleased to announce their groundbreaking multiplayer brawler Anarchy Reigns will launch on January 8th 2013 in the US and January 11th 2013 in Europe, for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system.
Developed by the talented team from the critically-acclaimed studio, PlatinumGames, Anarchy Reigns delivers over-the-top close combat, set in a massively open and fantastical world in a bleak, mutant-filled future. Watch iconic characters from the PlatinumGames stable duking it out in a series of vibrant arenas that could only have been thought up by Japan’s critically acclaimed studio. Up to 16 players can take part in multiplayer matches over a variety of game modes; engage in all-out Battle Royale destruction, co-operate with your friends and vanquish hordes of monsters in Survival mode or test your sportsmanship over a few rounds of Deathball! With an SRP of £19.99/€29.99/$29.99, Anarchy Reigns is a high quality game, selling at a fantastic price.
“SEGA are hugely proud of the work PlatinumGames has put in to creating a video game with such a unique and engaging vision” commented Jurgen Post, COO of SEGA Europe Ltd. “Gamers will soon be able to experience the full adrenaline rush that comes from competing in the explosive multiplayer matches of Anarchy Reigns.”
“Focusing on online play with Anarchy Reigns presented a new challenge for us here at PlatinumGames,” added Atsushi Inaba, Executive Director/Producer at Platinum Games. “Very few games fall under its genre of a melee-based online multiplayer brawler, so I think we’ve been able to supply a new kind of excitement that you can’t find anywhere else. While some time has passed since its Japan release, I look forward to having gamers in North American and Europe enjoy the Anarchy!”
@Tiz: It's about not knowing what will be in the lootcrate. That makes it possibly addictive. And EA went for pay-to-win. That is gambling. (4 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Agree. People want to punish others well implement methods because of EA stupidity. (51 minutes ago)
EA lost their minds and went full greed. $60 buy-in with P2W microtransactions, and an unholy grind? I'm not surprised by the pushback but it's impossible to tar everything with the same brush. (57 minutes ago)
If you don't have the time but want the stuff, then you pay. If you do have the time and want the stuff, then you grind. (1 Hour ago)
I think this whole thing is being blown out of proportion. EA over-stepped with BF2, but the method to unlocking stuff in most games is fine based on a time vs money scenario. (1 Hour ago)
This is a stupid move by ESA. They are now distancing themselves more and more from their customers. They are spitting in their faces. Apparently the signal to EA wasn't clear enough. (1 Hour ago)
And now Australia sees lootboxes as gambling. You know who doesn't? ESA, the entertainment software association which is EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, MS... (1 Hour ago)
