New Class Brings New Dangers in combat!

Matrix Games and Playnet (www.playnet.com) are pleased to announce that the first person shooter and massive multiplayer game Battleground Europe (www.battleground-europe.com) has brought a new class into the virtual battlefield; the Sniper.  This new addition comes hot on the heels of the game’s availability in North America from the Matrix Games store.

The sniper unit is armed with a historically accurate scope that modifies the standard issue rifle.  These elite troopers are fast, stealthy, and dangerously accurate.  No commander is safe from the crosshairs of a skilled sniper.  Due to their limited ammunition, the sniper unit will always be on the move to strike and return to base for re-supply.

 

The full release in North America provides the latest version and goodies that were included in the European release last month.  Enjoy a huge variety of extras, such as a 150-page game manual in electronic form, a combat equipment guide, wallpapers, game music, comics and more! Included is a key for 30 days of FREE play- a $19.99 value!

 

The Battleground Europe world features over 600 cities and 29,000 buildings.  The zoneless map covers 350,000 Km (Over 217,000 miles) of terrain with a whopping 4,000,000 trees.  Battles can rage for days and the servers can support thousands of players online simultaneously.

 

Whether you want to be a British Sharpshooter or a German fighter-pilot, Battleground Europe has an assignment waiting for you.  Every soldier can make a visible contribution to the final shape of the battle for Europe!

 

Battleground Europe is available via the Matrix Games Online Store digital download and game on demand. Pricing is US $19.99 for the immediately available download version and US $29.99 for the boxed version.
