Auto Assault tuned up

Free update for NCsoft's vehicular MMO game now available, adds new tournament map, missions, power-ups.

NCsoft has released a new update for its massively multiplayer online game Auto Assault. The update is now available in North America and Europe and is patched in directly through the game's servers.

Update 2 adds several new features, most notably new missions, "system-level changes," and a tournament map. Gamers will now be able to delve into the Emergence arena and The Coliseum--a training ground that sends wave after wave of enemies at drivers in exchange for experience and rewards. A new group of items named the Battlemaster Set has also been added for gamers with enough outpost tokens.

In addition to adding new content, developer NetDevil has tweaked gameplay for novice users and made overall performance sturdier. For a full list of the update's changes, head to the Auto Assault Web site.

Auto Assault is rated T for Teen and retails for $29.99. More information on the game is available in GameSpot's review.

chikahiro94: I agree. Non-traditional MMO's don't really do so well, an alternative form of funding for the project might do it some good. On the other hand, if the game relies solely on advertising, it might die... potential advertisers may see the initial subscription fee funded sales and pass on the opportunity. I installed AA tonight and am patching it right now, I picked it up for $4.98, clearanced at Target. Going to play the 14 day trial first. The reviews are what's got me apprehensive about flat out starting a subscription. Maybe if NetDevil took a page from ArenaNet and went free it would do better. With the current status of the server population, that shouldn't be a problem. At least they'd sell more units.

Nice to know its still being worked on, although maybe NCSoft should look into alternative revenue models for it - micropayments, ads, etc., to see if they can increase the player base and make a little more money off of it. I'm sure Dave Perry would happily do consulting work for the right price :)

I thought NCsoft dropped Auto Assault. As in chuck it in the trash.

auto assault doesn't have a big fanbase. they should have made a campaign mode or something so people who would be enticed to buy it.

I feel so sorry for Auto Assault. Its a fantastic game, was brilliant straight out of the box and the changes they've made so far have made it even better. But it feels just like the equally great Asheron's Call 2... it just doesn't have enough people playing it :(

If they would have gone the Guild War route I would have totally been up for trying this game.

It's a good game but it is probably doomed. It's too bad as this was the first (and only) MMORPG that I got into. I'd like for it to live but I have a feeling that it won't survive another year.

On the other hand, if it does die, that just means I have more time for the other games that I'm playing and I won't have a monthly fee anymore.

NCsoft seems to have slashed the price by one third. If anything, that they are supporting the product and tweaking it for better gameplay may mean their intent to at least recoup the development cost for the title? I don't mean to be harsh, and people could try it out first if there was a grace period of a few days of trial period...perhaps something to try in the lull before the holiday rush?
